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.

 I had these large letters that spell ART. It took me a while to figure how to alter their cardboard surfaces. The A was done with the tried and true decoupage, paint, and ephemera. The R with many types of spray paint and stencils.  Finally the T was done with loads of Washi tape. Together an eclectic mix of my favorite word!

  1. I love how that works when you hold on to something for a while and have no idea how you will use it and BINGO! One day you just know - it all works out! Love that you used all the different techniques - your letters are beautiful!!
