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.

Wrapping up Painting 1

Our final painting project at Delta College was to do a painting of anything of our chosing. This was tempered with "anything that won't get me fired" as stated by Andrew, my professor. I guess with mostly 20 year old's you gotta worry about this stuff. So here they are. Above the chihuahua was done by Kelsey and the beach scene by Little Big John. The turtle (which I didn't capture nearly well enough) was done by Big Tall John. He had a city on top of the turtle and it was just beyond cool. Yes we had two john's that were both over 6 feet tall.

(To the left) James did the painting that is on the right side, it half him, and half sheep. My favorite part is the green little guy with the great teeth, very original.

(Above) Kendra did the merry go round.  That was also from her imagination....... Super, super awesome.

(Below) Mine is on the far right. It has the suit case, sewing machine stethoscope, and model heart. I need to get close ups as the colors were dark and didn't show up well.

The "sister's" who we all swore were twins did these colorful treats to the left. They used acrylic paint and I love both of these.  If only I could be so bright and cheery.

Tom's is to the left and he did his from a picture from Thanksgiving. He went outside and took a picture on the street of Washington D.C. His perspective always amazes me and he has already developed his style.....

Painting II starts friday with some of the same cast of characters.....
