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.

The Dogwood

There are just not enough days of the dogwood tree in bloom. I absolutely look forward to this every spring. It is like the appearance of dandelions, sunsets, and the moon. This was altered in PIXLR. I actually shot this from my car while stopped at a light!

  1. Lovely, Michelle. They are so fabulous! We also have jacaranda trees here which will start later this month. They are big trees, totally purple when in bloom! Also short-lived (and messy if you live under one!)but wonderful to look at. Thanks for the email - I will get back to you soon!
