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.

Leaves 221-250

I haven't put any leaves up in a while so I thought I would throw them into the mix. My tree was wilting in the summer heat! It did so well over the winter. I adhered the leaves with pins to the cardboard tree trunk.  Well some of the leaves I adhered to other leaves using two sided tape. When the July heat wave hit, that didn't work out so well. The last few days I have actually been sewing the leaves together. So I should have a picture of the new and improved tree here shortly.

These leaves are made from various substrates including painted paper, scrap book paper, water color paper towel, and other scraps. I enjoy this tree so much and since it is in my garage it is still a conversation piece with neighbors! Here are leaves 221-250 and suffice it to say the tree still is looking bare!
