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.

Delightful Decoupage......

Decoupage is like going back to childhood.  I love to glue paper to just about anything that stands still long enough. I decided to make myself some french accessories. I used old yellowed french books to decoupage a mouchoir (tissue) box and a waste pail. An old piece of jewelry was placed on burgundy velvet ribbon around the top of the pail. A oval belt buckle was decoupaged with the french word Mouchoir.  I love the addition to my apartment!  Another new years resolution is to fill my apartment with my own art...to a year of happy creating.
