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.

Art Outside

Michigan weather can be fickle. Hot, cold, too humid........Art outside is not always practical.  Well mother nature hit it out of the part this week. We have had the most spectacular weather.  I decided to do art outside. As I pulled out all of my art supplies my teenage guests decided they wanted to do some art. These are the pics of the girls making some backgrounds for their own ATC cards. A vacation that was already perfect, complete with kayaking, beach trips, parades and fourth of july fireworks, we can add "arting" to that list!
 We even took a few breaks for some candy.  Notice Buckley the goldendoodle napping for support!

Using old coke boxes we painted and stamped!

I even got some of my ATC's done!!
What a beautiful mess!
