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 #9 Fabric Paper

Leaf #9 is made from fabric paper. I just enjoy this technique. I am amazed that I can use scraps of paper and plain muslin to get such neat effects. This paper leaf was made using some old book pages from an educational secretarial book on short hand. It was then embellished with tissue paper. The final color was added with shimmer mist in grape. The embellishment is an old earring. The die cut by sizzix is very an oak leaf that is quite a bit smaller than the previous maple leaf. It still adds such a flair to the tree!
