Goodbye 2012

Shall we do this? The traditional blog in review? Ok, here are a few of my favourite makes from 2012 to see out the old year and in with the new.

In no particular order.

Starting off we have this little experiment with acrylic paint and some Graffiti grunge from June.

Next up it is a simple card experimenting with a bit of illustration and watercolouring also from June.

Yikes, June was obviously a very creative month for me as my next favourite is also from June! It is all about recycling and colour, two of my favourite themes and has some stitch in as well, so covers everything really!

Some more of my sketching experiments for the next one and a lot of colour and layering as well with this tag from November.

Next we have an ATC from March which is just stuffed full of stamping and inkiness.

Another ATC favourite from this year was this Gesso textured make from November. The Gesso just looks like snow to me.

Sticking with neutral colours we have an inky ink blot tag from August that I had a lot of fun making. Might explore that idea a bit more in 2013.

Back with some colour from July with this great technique, which I will definitely be playing around with more in 2013, love the rich contrasts and the stamp patterns on this one.

Now for some simple elegance with this ATC from March, it uses stamping layers and some watercolouring techniques. I really should turn some of these into tutorials shouldn’t I?

Last is one of my top favourites of the year, I love altering sardine tins, as you know and I have lots of favourites, that could be a whole seperate post so I shall sum them all up with this Sunshine in a Tin from February.

It is fun to look back at 2012, I would love to see your favourites from your work in 2012 so give me a shout if you have blogged a 2012 review and I will hop right on over for a nosey!

Thanks for sharing your journeys and I wish you all a Creative 2013.

Happy New Year you all!

Don’t forget I’ve got a giveaway running at the moment with lots of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® colour.
