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.

The painting on the left is done on unstretched canvas. Duck cloth to be precise. I had hoped to actually quilt this painting. This picture was taken on Mackinac Island in August of 2011. I happened to be waiting outside of a store and saw this precious little girl looking at the art. I just had to paint it!

ATC 136 House I have got to say my favorite element is the 3D house. Love the wood laser cuts. Thank you ARTChix!
ATC 137 Trip
Love the Trip Suitcase! Check out the recycled bias tape that looks like pink lace!
I do love these laser wood cuts so! I combined my favorite stamp of music notes with the wood cut of the Eiffel tower. Combined with my vintage and yellowed dictionary definition of Paris, it is pure ATC addiction!

To the right is Katie. I love her simplistic line drawing full of beautiful, bright springlike flowers!
I truly enjoyed the blue and yellow color. To the right is Kendra. I love her non-traditional use of text and the fact that she was able to use two separated pages for her composition.
