Take a dive and fall into color.
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 37 Leave an Impression
Week 37 was so much fun and such a pleasant surprise. This art quilt started out with canvas that was painted with inexpensive acrylic paint. The background was a light blue. You can see this peaking through in the lower right corner. I then used tulip fabric paint in green to cover the base leaving a little of the blue showing through. Using a leaf stencil I then used various colors of tulip fabric spray pain in orange and yellow. I also added Glimmer Mist in orange, yellow and red. The colors were so bright, with a hint of shimmer. I didn't stitch on this journal quilt as I really liked it just the way it is. The colors are really beginning to turn in Michigan this week!
