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.

Christmas Ornament #2

The second christmas ornament was made from a bird die cut. This time I used my accuquilt die cut machine. It is just as fabulous as my vagbond. The fabric was a velveteen. The fabric was stamped with an antique brown ink and a snowflake stamp. The wing was made from a scrap of music note fabric. A bead was sewn on for the eye. To make the ornament a little more sturdy I backed it with a matching die cut from an old manilla folder.

The theme this year is cream, gold, and silver. So far I am enjoying this immensely. I hope you are too.
