I've only been blogging for a year and a half so this is my first top ten list but I wanted to do this to remember what I've done in 2012 as it seems to have zipped right by!
In terms of scrapping, this was a big year for me. It was my first year to get brave enough and apply for Design Teams. I also had the opportunity to guest design for several groups which was really exciting too:)
What does 2013 hold? I think it will be more of a personal journey...I want to make more art journal pages, take classes and be more inspired creatively...I also want to take more photos and document it more frequently...maybe a loose version of Project Life? I mean the kids are growing so quickly and I really want to capture those memories!
Now, before I move on to the layouts, I'll just announce that I've got a giveaway at the end of this post so stay tuned....
|This is one of my all time favorite pages. It was DT work for True XOXO Scrapbooking. I was going through a canvas stage and I really just wanted to play with mists and paints and make backgrounds. The inspirational quote doesn't hurt either!|
|This was for an online challenge. I was playing around with masking tape and dripping colors. This is my ideal of scrapping...white background, lots of negative space.|
|The design for this page just popped into my head so I went with it. I really enjoyed making those clouds.|
|I got the inspiration for this page from CSI. Again, I loved making everything up!|
|This was DT work for Basically Bare and I can't help but smile everytime I see this just for the photos themselves!|
|More DT work for Basically Bare. I wanted to challenge myself with layers and patterned papers more so than inks and paints. Those kites were fun to make!|
|I had a GDT stint on Do More With Less and I made a tutorial about those clouds. I was still really into masking tape:)|
|This was for a CSI challenge. I think I loved the messy look and mixed layers of this. This seems to be the way my mind wants to scrap.|
|Again, another CSI page. I so rarely scrap with flowers but if I can make splatters and a mess in the background I'm still content:)|
|I made this page for as a GDT for CSI. I loved the happiness of this page but I remember it being challenging. Again, I think it was the paper layering...going to work on that!|
And there you have it, my faves. It's good to look back and see how my style has changed or stayed the same, what I found my strengths and weaknesses to be. Thanks for joining me in my reflecting! I'm so thankful for all my followers and friends I've made along the way! You've all been a huge source of encouragement!
