I love putting up my christmas tree and decorating for the holidays. This journal quilt started with a piece of painted canvas. The background was done by using Glimmer Mist and a stencil with snow flakes. Using the Vagabond by Tim Holtz, the Christmas tree was die cut from metallic scrap booking paper. The ornaments are sequins that are layered and affixed with beads. Shaved ice by stampendous was glued to the bottom to make the snow. A fabric scrap was used for the tree skirt. The packages were made for scrap booking, but finished this tree off perfectly. Happy Holidays!
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.
