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.

Crooked Tree Arts Center 32nd Annual Juried Art Show

My art quilt "My favorite Moment" was one of 35 entries selected for the 32nd Annual Juried Art Show. The opening night was September 8th and it was such a rewarding experience. On the right, a pamphlet features the winners and the honorable mentions. I didn't win any awards, but just being in the same room as some of these amazing artists was more than reward enough. One of my favorite entries was done by Sara Gauthier. She did a pencil drawing of Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, and John F. Kennedy.  It is titled "Abraham, Martin, and John".  This pencil drawing is 206" by 109". It covered an entire wall in the crooked tree art center. Her work can be found at www.saragauthier.com. The picture at the top was of Mike, my model for the quilt and I at the exhibit when there weren't any other visitors!
