Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Week 34 Bloom
Week 34 This journal quilt was so much fun. It contains a couple of my favorite techniques and images. The background was made from painted canvas. The canvas was painted with acrylic paint. A stencil was placed over the top of the painted canvas. Tulip fabric paint as well as glimmer mist in multiple colors. These were used to give the floral appearance. The butterfly and "bloom" text were embellishments that were added. As summer comes to a close, it is fun to complete a journal quilt with all those fabulous summer time elements.
