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.

Painting three

 Painting three brought a new challenge. We had to use a palette knife with the Spanish palette. This contained Indian Red, Ivory Black, Titanium White, and Yellow Ochre.  It was such a great experience.

Below is a picture of Tom's painting on the left and mine on the right. We had the same still life that he so kindly set up.  The funnest part was on day three our daisies had started to slump. So a little imagination was required.

 The painting on the right is a close up of mine.

A close up of Tom's on the left. He does just the most amazing work. The true patience of a retired Kindergarden teacher.

Tom hard at work!

Kendra's painting!

Rachel's painting!
