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 5 Making Paper from Recycled Paper

Well my recycle project for 2014 has not been as productive as I would like, but for those that know me, despite obstacles I won't give up. We may have to change my goal of one recycled project per to week to one per month!
The Delta College Fiber Arts Club started today and we made paper from recycled paper. Sheri Archer is our mentor and what a blast.  Here are some pictures from our paper making!

Carl is to the right.  He is getting ready to Mix the Pond. This is a very fun bin of water and ripped/shredded/blended paper scraps in water. Looks like a pond!! Smells like one too!
 Rachel our president with our secretary getting ready to couch pronounced (Koosh) the paper! (aka flipping the screen over!!)
 Ellen is diddling the pond. No folks I am not making this up. That is the correct words.
This is what the paper looks like when it is on the couch! We are leaving it to dry and next week we are binding our own art journals!
