Every year I look back through my creating and choose my top 10 favourite projects. It's become a tradition, and it's a nice way each year to reflect on the journey I have been on as a scrapbooker.
For 2011 my favourites are a real mixture, although there are definite trends that I see appearing, in terms of what I was trying and how my work was evolving.
This is by far my favourite project all last year. I altered a vintage book to create a book containing the wonderfully quirky quotes from Brian Andreas, that I've illustrated. It would seem that it was your favourite project too. This page has by far received the most hits of all the pages on my blog, and the project is still being pinned on Pinterest. The internal pages can be seen here.
And last but definitely not least... this one! Jamie playing with his trains. Splatter painting, chipboard to create a scene... capturing the story. Love!
So there you are. My favourite 10 layouts last year.I discovered some new techniques that I've added to my toolbox and will take with me into 2012. Painting with glimmer mist, mixed-media backgrounds, splatter painting, walnut stain, handwritten titles, stamps, charcoal pencil work, heart motifs.
Did you introduce any new techniques into your scrapbooking last year? Do any of the techniques I tried in 2011 interest you? Are any of them something that you'd like me to devote a post on my blog to? Let me know!
