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 #6 Hope
Ornament #6 was made with paper. There were four types of paper used. A glitter paper with a sticky back was used for the actual ornament. This was a sizzix die used with the die cutter. The silver paper was first embossed and then cut into a strip. It was placed across the bulb. The gold paper was also embossed and was cute for the ornament top. The word hope was cut using the Tim Holtz Hope die cut. It was layered on gold foil paper.
