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.

What a hoot.......

Happy New Year! Hard to believe this will be the start of my third year blogging my artistic progress, or something like that.....I am so looking forward to many new creative endeavors this year. This first one is a representation of my latest creative passion which is thermofax screen printing. This is a ton of fun and really relaxing. I am working in my old note book, so it is a sketch book of short, minus the sketches, plus the trial and error of screens and paint. This one is a combination of three separate thermofax screens. The first layer is acrylic full body paint smeared with a credit card. That process is so imprecise, it is just a serendipitous event waiting to happen. I then  screened the floral motif in a chartreuse, it almost looks like vintage wall paper. A white random line design was then imaged. The final image was a owl done in three color paints, pink, gold, and black. This is not fine art, nor is it sellable, it is pure magic in playing with color and design. So off to a fun year of creative endeavors...May your new year bring you color, line, and space........
