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.

Stitched Flower

One of my favorite things to do is thread paint. It does take a while to complete a project, but it is very rewarding. This flower was stitched with over 15 colors of thread. It was done on a thick stabilizer. The flower was then cut out. The stabilizer is bright white and due to it's thickness (About 1-2 mm) I painted the edges to match the thread.  It was then stitched down onto a piece of fabric paper.
