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.

Still Life

Sighting is the process of checking position and proportion of your subject. Usually a straight stick is used. For our project we used a bamboo stick. Unit of measure if a smaller compositional element where height and width are clearly defined and can be used for measuring the relative proportions of the rest of the composition.  This was the first still life. It was fun to do, but for me technically challenging. I enjoyed using the plum lines to center objects and the properly place them in relation to the other objects. We still have not added values to our work. That is coming soon!
