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 50 Hop and Fly

ATC 50 Hop and Fly was done using a chip board bird. The actual substrate was scrap booking paper (which is just recognizable on the top left corner). An old paper receipt with a punch is decoupaged onto the base. Paper tape that was layered for effect was placed next. The bird is made out of chip board which gives a unique effect. The text was taken from a book.....Spring is certainly on it's way despite the drastic drop in temperatures today from 55 to 35 in about an hour.......
