Let's start with this little textured window canvas, made for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog, with Wendy Vecchi embossing paste and Sizzix dies. I love creating texture on my projects.
I had such fun making this Silhouette Filled With Thoughts layout, using a silhoutte of my son that I made from a photo. It contains a lot of little meaningful details. Made for CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration.
Another favourite was this Frameworks Mosaic Tutorial. I loved the technique of using embossing paste as grout and the Sizzix frameworks dies by Tim Holtz are so much fun to play around with.
I love using dies in ways they might not have been originally intended for, such as to construct various 3D items. These two Grungy Tall Houses were made using Eileen Hull's Sizzix block dies. It is a tutorial.
This Medival Castle Tutorial, also built using dies and paste, was a little more complicated to build than the houses. My son loves it.
After I made the castle, Anton wanted me to make a rocket. It is also a tutorial, if you want to make your own.
Another favourite layout this year was this Dream Big layout, with mixed media elements and lots of stamping using Darkroom Door stamps.
Here's one more construction project, using dies to make a Treasure Chest Tutorial. My son has been playing with it a lot and has added quite a few extra treasures into the box.
I love making Artist Trading Blocks (ATB) and have made quite a few this year, using dies by Eileen Hull. This is one of my favourites, as well as this one.
I had lots of fun making my version of Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 May, turning the tag into a burlap panel.
Made for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog, I was happy with how this Seaside mixed media canvas turned out, with fun 3D elements. It is also a tutorial.
I am very fond of watercolours and really enjoyed extending the scene of this photo with watercolours, also made for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
Bubble and Gelli Print mini album was a favourite of mine, made for Sizzix as a tutorial. I was also really happy with my Bird mini book.
Dragonfly and Bee mini burlap panels were so much fun to make, especially the wings and textures of the insects.
Family Locket Idea-ology Necklace, made for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I had such fun making this.
Textured Elephant Canvas, featuring one of my favourite animals and colours that I don't often use. It is also a tutorial. I am looking forward to the arrival of our container, so that I can hang my canvases up on the wall.
One of my autumn projects was this Autumn Burlap Panel, a tutorial with a fun stencil technique. The panel was made for the Tim Holtz Media Team.
The Spooky Mixed Media Canvas Tutorial, is a Halloween version of the seaside scene above. My favourite part is that Anton asked to be placed inside the house, so I added a little photo of him there.
Because of the topic of changes, I picked this layout, and I also like the colours and the white elements. Made for CSI:Color, Stories, Inspiration.
One of my favourite scenic stamping pieces was this full page black and white scene, with a photo added into the scene.
I love creating little 3D scenes and this Winter Scene Shadowbox tutorial, made for the Tim Holtz Media Team, was my favourite winter project last year.
Speaking of winter and Christmas, my December Daily journal is a yearly favourite. I love filling it with details and memories. This year, our December was pretty unusual, so it was extra important to document.
I really enjoyed making the Owl canvas, since it contains many of my most used products: dies, stamps, stencils, paint, paste and ink.
I ended up picking more projects than planned (I told you I am bad at picking favourites :). A Happy New Creative Year to everyone! And thank you again so much for your visits and comments during last year.
