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 33 Shifting Gears

Shifting Gears is made from a water color paper substrate that was painted with thick bodied acrylic paints. The images were stamped on the paper. Fabric tape was added. The card was then cut using the Sizzix die cut for ATC cards. I love this die cut as it makes the edges smooth and the cards are all uniform in size. The definition of a gear was added and then the Tim Holtz gear was glued using E6000 glue.
