Love Ornament from Karen Embry

It’s not always easy to come up with cute Valentine’s decor – everything seems to have hearts on it or is really cutesy, don’t you think? Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but sometimes you want something a little more sophisticated. This ornament painted by Karen Embry using FolkArt Enamels definitely fits the bill.  Karen floats the colors together in a beautiful way, making a simple word into a bold statement.  Visit the full project instructions here.

Speaking of Karen, Plaid would like to congratulate both her and Drew Emborsky (The Crochet Dude) on their New Horizons win!  At the end of each year Plaid hosts the New Horizons competition, which is open to CHA designers.  A cash prize of $1,500 is awarded to two artists based on achievements and professional goals.  Awards were presented at Winter CHA.  Congratulations Karen and Drew!  We are so proud of you.

  1. Karen is truly and artist in every sense of word. Her attention to detail is a great asset to her
    work. I know cause I still have jewelry, wood objects from when she first started and they are
    over 20 years old.

  2. Congrats on the win! I love that project – I get tired of all the hearts and such on V-day sometimes, so it is nice to see something different!
