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.

Recycle 3 - Drawing II The Self Portrait

Drawing II is turing out to be a very fun class. Great assignments and creative freedom.  The class is also full of very talented and super fun artists.  For this project I used acrylic paint, water color paint, stencils, and old dictionary/book pages. Although I am falling behind in my quest to produce a recycled project a week, I will not quit. This project I used recycled book pages...

To the right is Katie. I love her simplistic line drawing full of beautiful, bright springlike flowers!

Tom's has a unique appearance. He did the entire self portrait out of pen strokes.
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.
 Melinda was able to make black and white pop!
Chelsea did such an amazing rendition of herself. You have got to love the cheetah!  How would you draw yourself???
