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 Swap ArtChix

The ATC Swap sponsored by ARTChix was a pleasant surprise. What a great opportunity to feed my addiction of ATC cards! They requested that you make 6 cards with the theme of "Nest". The catch? You had to use their images. Not a problem for me, as I their images are a hoot. Pun totally intended.

Using the ARTChix images I chose different bases for each. Shockingly, only one contained fabric paper. The remainder were painted mixed media or drawing paper. The embellishments consisted of magazine text, book text, crystals, paper tape, fabric trim, die cuts, and stickles paint! The swap ends early june. I should receive 6 ATC cards from other artists. I will feature those after I receive them. So exciting!
