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.

3D Wrap up for 2013

So our last project for 3D design was an installation. We decided to make a giant hand hanging from the second floor reaching down towards students. Sylvia, Lexi, Mary and I decided to recycle. (Now you can see where I got my 2014 idea for the blog from!)  So we made a prototype......

There it is in all of it's glory. I just regret that we didn't count the number of bags that we used. It was 5 feet wide by 7 feet long.  I also regret that we didn't video hanging this. It was during finals week and every stressed out college student thought we were crazy.........not to mention facilities engineering as we left the school, smiles on our faces with it hanging there!

Lauren visited our class and liked the project done by shannon which was all origami! Nothing like a child to bring art to life..........complete with chocolate frosting on our lips....

This owl was actually our second of 5 projects. I just never got a great picture of it until the last day as Randy had it hidden in his office. This owl was made completely from wire with one large branch from mother nature.  It was a great class!
