Good Monday morning. I can hardly believe this is the last day of December and that we are heading into another new year. I thought it would be fun to go back and post a review of my favorite projects for each month of 2012. I will attach a link to the date for each project in case you want to go back and check out the details.
There are three different projects on this January post and I had a hard time deciding which was my favorite. I finally settled for this mixed floral spray.
I learned the Belleek inspired technique in 2012 and it became one of my favorite techniques to use with flowers.
I wanted my flowers to have just a hint of color and used a technique that I refer to as the color washed technique.
I loved the single tulip image by Rubbernecker and thought it was well worth the trouble of painting several and hand cutting to create the tulip bouquet.
I had to sneak another deer project in called Mother and Baby Deer that was made in June. I added white watercolor paint to the deer to create a more realistic look.
I love creating birdhouse projects and have made many of them throughout the year. I especially love the wooden birdhouse and you can see the full birdhouse post called Home Sweet Home here.
I have fallen in love with rolled roses and have collected many different dies. This may be my all time favorite rolled rose project because I love the contrast of the red and green against the all white background.
I started making Christmas cards in August and kept on making them right on through December. It seems there is never enough time to make all the cards needed for the holidays.
I have become addicted to playing with dies and this Christmas house is my favorite project in September.
I love creating window cards and this is one of my all time favorites.
I love making Christmas wreaths and especially love the green and red against the decorative all white background.
The September 3 Christmas Lodge is my all time favorite project made in 2012. It had so many intricate parts and details but I so loved the process of making it and the final outcome.
I hope you have enjoyed my 2012 review as much I have. I really loved going back over the year and being reminded of projects that gave me so much pleasure to make. I want to thank each of you for visiting my blog and all of your supportive comments throughout the year.
Happy New Year!
