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 94 Dragonfly Schematic

ATC 94 features one of my favorite stamps. It has a dragonfly with dimensions. It reminds me of old drafting scrolls. A long, long time ago, I worked for General Motors. I was responsible for checking out drafting prints from the drafting center. I remember looking at the beautiful detail that was hand written on all of the engine parts. Each component had it's own drawing. This has since been replaced by the computer design. Still an art form but not nearly as beautiful as the original drawing of each draftsman. This stamp is nostalgic to me. I use it whenever I can!
