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.

Glass Plate #1

This glass plate was made at a studio in Cross Village/Harbor Springs Michigan. Lynn Dinning and I met at the Good Hart market days last summer. She was at the booth next to me and was kind of enough to provide me bags for the sale of my blankets/towels for the humane society. I looked her up and was able to take a tour of her studio. I was also able to make this glass plate. The glass on the top is my favorite as it has the neatest properties. It is called dichroic glass. I plan on using this plate for my pins while sewing. It is the perfect addition to my studio. I hope to take classes from her in the future. She teaches at the North Central Michigan College located in Petoskey, Michigan.  She can be reached at her website, it is worth checking out.  http://www.artistsnorth.com/dinning/
