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.

Draw Some Shoes......

Taking a drawing class was so daunting for me, but I cannot get my art degree without it. I can't even take most art classes without it. Sooooooo......I started January 8, and it has been so much fun. This is our first project which is a gesture drawing followed by a contour line, no shading, tonal variation, values etc.
It was a lot of fun to figure out how to make things seem three dimensional by the thickness of your pencil marks.
