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.

Leaves 111-120

Well Spring has finally sprung in Michigan. It has been in the 80's the last two days and the trees are finally getting flowers and buds. Still in the midst of my ATC addiction, I decided to take a short break to make some leaves for my tree. There are two types in this batch. A few are made from fabric paper. This technique is featured by Beryl Taylor in quilting arts TV season 1 and in her book Mixed Media Explorations (a must purchase).  Seeing as today is predicted to be in the high seventies, I will work on getting a picture of the tree with all of the new leaves added to it.
