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 6 Recycle Paper and Make a Bound Paper Journal

This week in the Delta College Fiber Art Club we used paper to make our own bound journals. So this incorporated new, used, recycled and RELOVED paper! We were able to learn how to bind a book using wax and thread. We were able to learn terms like signature and kettle stitch.

Here is Sherri our fearless leader and volunteer! She is getting us all set up.  Everyone had to bring 30 pages of paper, any kind of paper.  There were maps, music sheets, recycled tests, notes, scrap booking paper, and I brought some fabric paper. Can't forget our handmade paper from last week is included too!

Ellen and Jennifer are getting ready to make the signatures.

Stacks and stacks of reloved paper!

My book--love the recycled road atlas!  Bound with color string!

My book on the left! Can't wait to decorate this journal for a future post!

Our collective journals!
