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 #3 Keyhole
This ornament was made with a faux swede fabric. It was cut using a die cut by sizzix. The cut an old manilla folder to stabilize the back. I added Tim Holtz music notes tape. Using metallic gold thread, I stitched the manilla folder and fabric together. Next, I had these rather inexpensive plastic beads in strips that were obtained at a yard sale. I was able to hand stitch those on with clear monofilament thread. I then stitched on the silver key hole that is from the Tim Holtz collection. Happy Holidays!
