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.

Eye Pocket #3
Eye Pocket #3 was made from both fabric and scrapbooking supplies. The actual eyeglass case was painted with pink fabric paint. The ribbon was added along the edge. (This is a great use for scraps.) I then used my Tim Holtz Vegabond with sizzix dies to cut the paper flowers. The flower that is in the middle is actual made from small fabric flowers that were found in the scrap booking section of my local craft store. Bric Brac ribbon was used to make the stem connecting the three flowers. The flowers were embellished with paints and buttons for the center. This eyepocket holds my favorite tools needle nose plyers and exacto knife!
