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 266 to 285

I had some great fabric paper left over from another project.  Again my hats off to Beryl Taylor who developed the technique. She is now being quoted in many art books.  They really should call the technique Beryl Paper.  Anyhow, I decided to make up some more leaves. There are virtually no leaves left on the trees after all this rain in Michigan! So I thought I would brighten up my own tree! I have so many cool embellishments that I have collected through magazines, images that I have found, and some neat scrap booking items, that I decided to embellish these leaves even more. Enjoy what is left of fall before winter blows in!

  1. Hi Michelle! Wow - your leaves look fabulous - what a variety!! My sister told me too that the rain washed most of the leaves away.... the fall colors are so short-lived, but I think that makes them even more magical when they are there!
