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.

Post Card #5 Hope

Affirmation words are some of my favorite themes for my artwork. One of my favorite words is HOPE.
This post card was made with a background from an upholstery sample. The ephemera is from old books and scrap book paper. The Ticket with the word hope is from the Tim Holtz collection. The mustard thread was added on the edges using a decorative stitch on my sewing machine. A scrabble letter was added to provide some dimension and added interest.
