2013 Favourite Posts Part 2

Hello again and Happy New Year! Today I am continuing my favourite posts of 2013 - you can see the first part here, again I picked 2 or 3 projects a month.

July

Summer Burlap Panel Tutorial - I did a fun patterned paper transfer technique on this burlap panel, combined with some favourite dies and embellishments.

Tiny Stamps and Trinkets Shadow Box - I had fun making this altered Prima packaging shadow box, using a lot of small embellishments and stamps.

August

Dotty Gelli Print ATC Book - I got a gelli plate and I've been having lots of fun with it. This was one of my first projects with it, an ATC mini-book with quotes about summer, and some of my favourite stamps.

A Stroll in the Park - This is one of my favourite scenic stamping pieces of the year. The rich colours came out very nice.

September

Be Happy - I like the playfulness of this layout, using gelli prints, and stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp.

Art Journaling Tutorial - I really like the size of the small Dylusions journal, and started doing some art journaling. This post has two pages and two ATCs, made for Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Blog Hop.

October

A Spooky Night Shadow Box - This configurations box was so much fun to decorate and fill with spooky little details.

Altered Wooden Blocks - I was real happy with these altered blocks, using Darkroom Door Stamps and some fun mixed-media techniques.

November

Advent Calendar - This interactive Advent calendar made from Eileen Hull's Candy Drawer die was another favourite.

Christmas Daily Worn Journal - I love Tim Holtz Worn Covers, since they make a great base for mini-books. This was my December Daily journal. I also made a Book of Random Things, with another worn cover.

December

http://layersofink.blogspot.com/2013/12/12-tags-of-2013-december-luminary.html
Winter Luminary (12 tags of 2013) - My version of Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 December, a winter luminary. I was also very happy to have this picked as one of the winners for that month.

Gesso Dry Embossing - This was another of my favourite tutorials during, a fun dry embossing technique that works with any embossing folder.

Time for a new year with new projects!

Thank you for stopping by!

  6. I was scrolling down to comment that the Tiny Stamps and Trinkets was my favorite, but then I encountered Be Happy, and then Art Journaling and then Spooky Night. Suffice it to say you are one talented artist!
