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.

 Journaling is still something that I want to try to do more often. I just finished an entire notebook full of notes on a class in which I take the test tomorrow. An entire notebook of about 80 pages in 6 weeks.  Hate to let that go to waste so I will have to alter, paint, stitch, glue, and otherwise destroy that book soon.  Before I get ahead of myself, this page is very simple. I used my favorite techniques of acrylic paint, sizzix dies, old book pages, buttons, stamps, embossing ink, and song lyrics.  Very simple but calms me every time I look at this page. I need to do more of these pages, I should actually do one a day. They are so relaxing to do as there is no right or wrong answer.  To journaling more and worrying less.......
