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.

Ice Dyeing-Dye your own Fabric
Ice Dyeing was featured in Quilting Arts Magazine in the August/September Issue of 2011 Volume 52. This technique is so much fun. The article was written by Lynda Heines. I am so grateful she shared her technique. It is a fun way to make your own tie die fabric and it is easy to do. This is a piece of fabric that is being entered in the Quilting Arts Dye Your Own Fabric Challenge.
