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.

The written Sketch book-Journaling

The written sketch book is a class offered by Lynn Krawczyk. It is a writing class designed to improve your creative and artistic abilities. I joined for a number of reasons. Number one, I love to write. Number 2, despite everyone telling me I need a sketchbook, I have never kept one. Yes, perhaps that is why I can be such a scatter brain, all these ideas floating around in my head, and nothing written down. So I decided to join the class. The first writing prompt inspired me to actually draw some flowers that I had in my house. (I used these for one of my drawing assignments.) I decided to sketch them with water colors and gellato's. I am hoping this is the impetus for me to actually keep a journaling sketch book, so that I  may log ideas, thoughts, and inspirations for future projects.
