Happy New Year to my friends who are already ringing in 2013 and wishing a fun celebration to those still waiting upon its arrival! :)
I'm jumping in, a tad late and less organized than last year, with my post of favs for 2012. Since I create all types of projects, however, I couldn't necessarily narrow it down to just 12, thus the question mark in my title!! I'm really, really close though so I do hope you don't mind the couple extra eye candy goodies to peep out.
In no particular order here are some of my fondest projects created during the past year
|Love the randomness of this LO documenting my daily life and favorite things: splatters of tar gel, bold colors, clouds, washi tape, chipboard, doodles - oh my!!! Surely a Scarlett LO :)|
|Love this card for the embossed stenciling technique I used with Pan Pastels to boot! The sunburst makes me happy as well! Again lots of color, doodles and clouds - paired with some messiness.|
|This is a fav for the pictures first of all - love that I captured my daughter at 12 still playing with bubbles! The background was totally fun to build up and I really like that it has an actual bubble wand on the page.|
|These artsy cards are made completely of scraps!!! Lots of bold colors, doodles, clouds....yeah you all know me and my style by now, LOL!!!|
|I often warm up my creative self with tag play - this was one I really liked and have hanging up in my space on a jump ring along with some others I'm inspired by - just a reminder to let go and have faith!|
|Ahh, my heart, my Vito. Gone but never ever will be forgotten. We didn't lose him in 2012, yet I was able to finally scrap about him this year. This page is dear to me.|
|This is an arch I had published in an issue at SNR magazine. I don't have many pictures of my hunni and I so this is kind of a fun way to show off one of my favs of us. I like the grungy textures and shower of sequins! :)|
|My first stab at bookbinding - woot! woot!! It worked and I am hooked beyond belief - stay tuned because I will be giving some tutorials on the ScrapFX blog in 2013!!! Lots of ScrapFX goodness all up in here!!|
|Love my cowgirl boots - what more can I say??? Well I can say I love ScrapFX stencils as well - all the purple chevrons were made from the rockin' Chevron stencil they have.|
|Proud of the felt embellishments I handmade for this LO - I am typically not the sewing type whether it be hand, machine, or otherwise so these are truly an accomplishment!|
But most importantly I've learned its important to do what you love and stay grounded while you do it - I give God all the glory and praise for blessing my hands with the talent I have!!! I'm looking forward to taking all I've learned in to 2013 and growing.
Thanks so much for joining me in this teeny bit longer recap - I wish you and yours many blessings and good things for the New Year! Scarlett
