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.

Star Gazing

Star gazing is a 5 X 7 work. I have spinners which are made by 7 gypsies. These are a nice way to keep art work organized. There are three sizes, ATC (2 X 3), Photo (4 X6) and Clear Stamp (5 X 7).  Hence, my decision on choosing a size.

Every early August there is a Persaids Meteor show. I have the fondest memories of lying on the concrete driveway with my sister watching these falling starts. This was a tribute to that memory.

Coming up April 22 is anticipated to be the peak of the Lyrids meteor show with a peak of 100 falling stars per hour. I am not sure the odds are in our favor of having clear skies here in Michigan, but one can always hope.
