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 5 The heart sings a chord

ATC 5 was constructed out of fabric paper. It was stamped multiple times to provide depth and a layered appearance. I have a small vintage dictionary with music terms. I selected chord and placed that within the heart.  A small flourish was added for dimension. This was found in my thrift trinket treasure trove! Again the zigzag stitch was used to frame the edge. Also, to add stability to these cards, they are stitched to a recycled card board backing.
