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.

Go Fish!

Go Fish! This is a project that I started this week. I took my notes from my Art and Appreciation II course from my first half of the class. Yes I managed to fill entire sketch book in just 7 weeks. With my previous post, I had vowed to recycle and to create more art! So here it goes. I have started to paint over my notes with acrylics. I am going to use this experiment to learn how to blend colors and to test color combinations. A definite weak spot for me. I am then going to try out all my snazzy thermofax screens. This will allow me to see what they look like on paper prior to using them on fabric!  This Go Fish experiment started with three acrylic paints, teal blue, purple, and mustard. I then added a thermofax screen print of circles in gold dust and then the skelefish from Lynn Krawcyzk. I just love that fish and am excited to use in a fabric project!
