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 44 Fall Leaves

The journal quilt for Week 44 was in reference to the thousands of leaves I have raked this fall. I have two very large maple trees. There leaves turn yellow with some red. The leaves fall very late as compared to other trees. The background is remnant fabric. I loved the texture and color of this fabric. It has a sheen to it that gives it such a unique dimension. The pumpkin is made of paper. The leaves are chip board. The pumpkin and work "fall" are sewn on. The leaves are adhered using fabric glue. A fun trim that I found on clearance is used for the edge. I hope your fall was as perfect as mine.
