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.

Running with Scissors

Running with Scissors is one of my favorite sayings. A company for mixed media supplies actually named themselves Running with Scissors. It is the image that is conjures that makes me smile. You would think I would think of injury, and mayhem, but instead I think of a rebel running happily along with scissors. Totally going against the grain.  This screen print is a bit more simple than the las two as their is only one screen. I decided to do pink and green acrylic colors as the background after watching an episode of love it or list it on HGTV, one of the designers wore these two colors and I thought to myself, "She would totally run with scissors." The screen was done with silver silk screen paint. I love the iridescent quality of the paint. To going against the grain, in whatever fashion makes you a rebel........
