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.

Leaf #7

As I was making leaves for my tree, I thought to myself, why do all leaves have to be leaves? I have some great die cuts of all different shapes and sizes. So I decided to add butterfly leaves. This has to be one of my favorites. The fabric paper was made using muslin with old patterns. Shimmer mist in the color of pink was used. The butterfly die cut was used with my sizzix die cut. The butterfly was embellished with rhinestones. Simple but so much fun.
