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.

This fabric postcard was done using a variety of ephemera. An old picture of two children is the focal point. A piece of fabric from a upholstery book was cut to 4 X 6 for the background. This fabric was stamped with multiple types of Ranger Distress Ink. An old playing card that had yellowed with age was added. Machine free motion stitching was completed. As a final 3D embellishment, the word "play" was sewn on with twine.
