It has become a tradition for me to wind down the year on my blog by posting some Top Ten Lists before the year ends. It makes me go back and look at what I have done and accomplished and it also makes me dwell in memories. Too often we forget about the things we did and accomplished throughout the year- often just bashing ourselves for not fulfilling all the wonderful new year’s resolutions from last year. Maybe this makes you wanna do it too – if so – share :)
This art journal page which I showed with a fun video tutorial is still one of my favorites because of the happy colors and the technique.
This Canvas I created for very dear friends – I had so much fun making it and I am so happy for their little addition to the family.
MiniBook Cover which is part of a class I taught with several other artists organized by Donna Downey- called Internationally Inspired.
Another art journal page- which is actually part of my Über*Media Gesso Online Workshop. It says “Not Reaching for the stars! I am just reaching for my personal star – one that just shines for me!” Pretty much sums up my year.
A canvas which just makes me happy with texture and colors- this one I actually also teach right now as an in-person Workshop- but it is also part of my Über*Media Acrylic Paint Workshop . I think it might be my favorite class to teach at the moment.
Happy Canvas :) I love it because I made the products just my own.
An artjournal page which is part of the Whatevers Storytelling Project. For this sgraffito background I posted also a technique video .
I sneak this altered project in here- I love it because it was a bit unusual for me- a little Sardine tin.
Also not really Mixed Media- but Altered Book…I love this book. I had a blast creating it with many wonderful heritage picture of my aunt Margot.
This Canvas is probably my absolute favorite of the year. It says: Before I die, I want to become the person that I am
If I look at my Mixed Media Projects this year- I can definitely say that the love for texture got even heavier. I totally embraced texture in every possible way- and I still don’t see the end of it for me. I also seem to like to do bigger statements in my work and there is also a lot of hidden meaning involved in the way I incorporate techniques and materials with a theme or thought. Also pretty clear that I had a little love for bold happy colors this year- lot’s of orange, red and yellow ;)
Which of my posted projects do you like the best?
