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 4 ATC 136-140

So in an effort to continue my recycled art I made some more ATC cards. These are all made on the back of recycled card board.  Some of the images and backgrounds are from recycled paper.  Even some of the trim and ribbon are recycled from old clothing.  Old dictionary, maps, and book text are added for background. New items include decorative tape, 3D elements from ARTChix, images, and thread mingle with the old.

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!

 ATC 138 I love Paris. The image is just perfect. The Eiffel tower hat is the best. The Paris Washi tape graces the recycled, painted cardboard!
 ATC 139 The boot--Another ArtChix laser wood die cut.  Added to maps, and other fun images, this one doesn't have any text but is full of spunk.
ATC 140 Paris
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!

  1. My goodness, girl - you are always creating something new! Love these and especially love the whole recycling idea - much more satisfying than going out and buying a bunch of stuff, in my opinion!
