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.

Drawing Finale

 The finale....finished. It is hard to believe that I have finished all my studio art classes for my associates. It has been so worth it. I have learned so much and it has forced me to try things that I certainly would not have, if left to my own devices.

My drawing instructor was amazing. He was always able to provide constructive feedback, while finding something positive even in the midst of the biggest mess.

Our final drawing project was really fun. Any subject, any medium, four renditions....
 The first jeep was done with graphite.
The one to the right with charcoal.
Since I also had Painting II in which I used oils, I jumped in with acrylics. These two jeeps were my favorite.
This last is my own jeep. A 2001 rusty jeep with 150K miles. I still love it and I am so happy that I was able to paint it!
