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 7 Treasure

This ATC was constructed from a base of recycled plastic bags. The bags are best painted with fabric paint as it won't chip away from the ironed plastic. The learning curve on these fabrics is huge. On plastic bags, very inexpensive chalk stamping pads are best. Due to the varied texture of the surface, it is best to use really big stamps, as details get easily lost. The key hole and a small jewelry piece were added for three dimensional effect.
