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 26 Blackbird

Well this ATC was just kind of an accident. I was playing with my specialty papers with a fiskers die cut and made the blackbird, a purple. The base of this ATC card is actually recycled cardboard. I am not sure what this image was meant to be, or what I had gotten it from. I had randomly cut some scrap for the backs of these ATC's. I found this one and felt like playing with it. I put the bird on the small box on the desk. I found this old book that I have. It is the coolest thing. It has all of these interesting sentences. The purpose of the book is that it is attempting to teach grammar. Well, grammar is not my strong suit, but I must say some of the sentences are going to be great for these ATC's. They are awesome creative prompts.
