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 Week 4

 James is making huge progress on his painting. He was painting on the floor this time and it is so large I had to stand on a platform to get this picture. James is also painting on canvas that is not stretched and he is using acrylics.
The one to the right is mine and is being done from a picture that I took on mackinac island. The picture is fro 2011. I am using fabric paint on duck's cloth so that I may embellish and sew on it when I finish it.  I have 12 hours into this at this point and still a long way to go. I must say this is my favorite class.

 Unfortunately I do not have a steady hand. This is Tom's. He is amazing and progresses so fast. I just love his work. I made him promise that I could buy one of his paintings prior to leaving class.

To the left Tom and James are having an intense discussion.

 Chelsey has put some finishing touches on Super Man!

Elise is in painting I and is in our class, she is a natural.

Andrew is our painting instructor. His paintings are always amazing. He works side by side with us so we can see how he approaches his paintings!
