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 #3 Port of Cross Village

I have been remiss on the blog this month. I have a lot of excuses, but none of them good. So let's move onto the art!!! This was a project that I started last summer. I took an old atlas and turned it into a journal of sorts. I love mixed media! So I bought a book on painting and flipped to the beach pages to learn how to paint water and sand.

Nothing is more fun than the port of cross village in the summer. I spend most of my days there, and it was the place in which I took the picture of mike kyaking. See journal quilt 52! I used some vintage images of bathing beauties that I had received when taking a class by Claudine Hellmuth to add human figures. I added small starfish and a drink umbrella for 3 dimensional effect.
