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.

ATC 10 Flutter

This ATC flutter is a combination of fabric paper (base) and plastic bag substrate (hearts). The hearts were made from the scraps that were left after cutting the ATC cards. They were stitched with gold thread. The flutter definition is from a dictionary from the 1940's. The book paper that you see in the back ground is actually part of the fabric paper. I will be making more fabric paper in the near future and will show the steps so you can see how to incorporate elements into the paper. Beryl Taylor discovered the technique and then perfected it. She is pure genius.
