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.

Postcard #8 Collect $200

Well it is so good to be back! I had a busy march which included a fabulous vacation, moving to my new apartment, selling my house, and passing a huge certification at work. Did I miss it? You bet!
This postcard was made from upholstery books. The fabric for the background was cut 4" X 6". I then added scrapbook paper that was embossed with a bingo motif. For 3D embellishment I added a bingo wood chip, scrabble tiles, and a card from am old monopoly game. Just remember, avoid jail, pass go and collect your $200.
