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 102 Pink

ATC 102 was done using an image from art chix. The background was made by painting over some of my less than presentable drawings!

ATC 101 A team

ATC 101 was serendipitous in the making. The actual background paper came out interesting. I love the zebra stencil! I added some stamps and voila!

ATC 97 Femme

ATC 98 was done using an image from an old book. I love these black and white images with just a hint of color. I can't help but to skim the French dictionary for some inspiration.

ATC 97 Flowery

ATC 97 started off with a water color background. I then used stencils with Tulip fabric paint. This is an Alisa Burke technique. These spray paints work exceptionally well with stencils. They have great pigment, and aren't too watery. Images were stamped, and decoupaged.  For the grand finale, some bling!
