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.

Journal Page #1
Journal Page #1 started with postcards from my favorite places in Northern Michigan. I took an old World Atlas. I started by glueing pages together to give thickness to each page. I then sewed the edges with my sewing maching. I painted the pages with different paints. I decoupaged various maps, ephemera, old book pages, and postcards. I added pattern pieces, tissue paper and finally stamps! Art Journaling is something I would like to add for 2012 to this blog!
