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 3 Love

This third ATC is to celebrate the upcoming valentines day. Such a sappy holiday but it was one of my favorites as a child. I enjoyed trading valentines at school. This was made from fabric paper. The paper was then stamped numerous times to give a layered effect. The number three was embossed on the bottom. (It is upside down and cut off to give it a more whimsical feel).  The crown is an actual rubbing. A new found favorite medium! The small gold heart is from a broken piece of costume jewelry found in my thrift trinket treasure box. The edges were stitched in a zig zag fashion with pink thread.
