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.

 These poppies were taken in the summer of 2011 at an abandoned house in Cross Village Michigan. I love their color. These images were edited with the pixlr software. I enjoy taking an image and aging it with this software. Operates similar to photoshop, but very simple to use. It is also free online. These photos are actually completed in multiple steps. They are color photographs that are made black and white. The color is "painted" back into the flower. The photos then are put through various filters to achieve the desired effect.
