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 74 Discover Love

ATC 74 Discover Love was made with an substrate that was painted cardboard. I typically don't use bright colors so the orange was a new stretch for me. It was layered with ephemera. It was stamped with one of my favorite bird stamps. The word "love" is actually paper tape. I find with the paper tape that you have to use some gel medium to get it to really adhere to the painted surface. The monkey is an artchix image. The discover is from magnetic poetry.
