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 34 Memoir

This ATC card was so serendipitous. (Love the word, love the movie more.) This was fabric paper. I know, can't stay away from it for too long....... The image is from a very old book. These sketched images are found throughout the book. I put one of these into the fabric paper, not sure how it would turn out. Even though there is tissue paper over the image, you can still see it. The woman is running to catch a falling picture from the wall. The purple flower at the top is actual alcohol inks that splattered just right. The two smaller dried flowers were added below it. The entire card was stitched around the edges. This is necessary as the fabric paper tends to curl. So to avoid that I use recycled card board and I sew a matching ATC to the back so that is firm and it will not bend.
