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.

Journal "I am"

I always wonder what to journal about. I found a book that gives some neat suggestions. One of them is "I am..."  Let me tell you how much fun that can be......I started by practicing my quilting stitches. The more you draw them, the easier it is to sew them. I used water colors and gelatos. If you haven't used gelatos by Faber-castell you are missing out. They write like a crayon, and when you put water on the color it turns into water color. The colors are so vibrant and rich. This is such a fun thing to do when you don't have a ton of time, but are stuck somewhere. I think the funnest thing of all is writing your own text that is not legible to anyone else. I have a lot of "I am's" in there. They make me laugh. Especially the "I am a rock star", Debbie that is dedicated to you.
