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 16 Swirl

This ATC was made using some of my favorite mediums. There is no real theme, just a swirling bird that was stamped using embossing powder. It gives a regal appearance and adds depth. The black swirl is a rub on. I remember these from when I was a kid, glad they have them in adult themes.  The base is fabric paper. I know, when will I ever run out? I make so much at a time, I have an endless supply. I then added a red patterned scrapbook paper and then some paper tape. (TIM HOLTZ) It was stitched with gold thread.
