Happy New Year!!

I can't believe that it's the end of 2010!  Where did this year go?  Why did the months fly by??  What did I do to mark this year?  Well, let's have a little review of the projects of this year.  I like to look back over my layouts and artwork and pick my top 10 for 2010.  I've been doing this for a couple years now, but I was inspired by Balzar Designs to post them... I probably would have forgotten to revisit my pages this year in all the chaos!  Thanks!  Here they are in no particular order:

 Okay, so here is what I've noticed about my favorites this year:
1.  I am still on a cardboard as background kick!  I love to rip, tear, and expose the cardboard layers to add texture.  It's something about the 3D element that I have to have!
2. Lots of layering of torn bits going on here.  I'm using lots of scraps and recycling!

3. Drips and splatters are a staple of mine.  I love to drip ink, paint, mist, stencil, etc... It's a favorite technique of mine!

4. Circles are in almost ALL of my pieces.  I don't think I can make a page without a circle element showing up in it.  Perhaps it is my dream of being well rounded. LOL!

5. Not alot of journaling.  Just pictures and layering to tell the story.  I like to talk but I guess I'm not a big writer.  So, that will be my goal this year... to journal more... use text more.

Okay, so I've shared... now you link me up to your favorites on your blog!  I love to browse other's pages!   I have a little giveaway to share here too...

Nikki Sivils goodies to one lucky comment telling me what your New Years traditions are.  What do you do each New Year's Eve to ring in the coming year and wave goodbye to the old?
