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.

Instagram, the phone, and a new toy!

 During my recent art retreat in Oregon I met Patty Waite, her blog is Nomadic Notebook (see right side of my screen for her link).  Her photography is so amazing, and I look forward to her posts as they are so full of creativity and inspiration. During the retreat she had talked about using instagram. I had downloaded it on my phone, and had never used it. Fast forward 2 months and I found myself on the beach during a gorgeous sunset with only my phone. I took these photos and put them through Instagram.  Now that was so easy and so much fun. It is amazing the different filters that can be applied. I look forward to more photography on the fly!

  1. Oh! How exciting!! Find me on instagram - @nomadicpatty. I post every day and they are 99% phone photos doctored with various apps. I have to set limits because some days I could just play all day long and nothing would ever get done! You meet so many people, though, which is part of the fun! Yay!
