Inspiration Elevator...Top Ten and Art Journaling Intentions

A few weeks ago, I posted my Top 12 layouts of 2012.  I love going through everything I have done over the year to see how I have changed and grown, and to reflect on all those special moments!

Today for Inspiration Elevator, we are also celebrating our favorites of 2012.  I have a lot more "favorites" other than layouts, so today I am going to focus on some of my favorite things I created that were NOT layouts!

You may recall from last month's challenge that the purpose of this challenge group was to take our scrapbooking to the next level, to stretch our creative process and to grow as artists by embracing challenges that make us think, work and grow. 

So here are some of my favorite "other" projects over the past year, in no particular order:


Mini Albums:

(Two albums that I want to share are going to be published in Create: Mini Albums in March 2013, so I can't share them at this time!)

(Two-Gether for Birds of a Feather Kit Club.  See HERE)

(December Daily Album 2012. Still have to post :) )

Art Journal Pages:

(" I Believe" for IE Prompt.  See HERE

("I Regret" for IE Prompt.  See HERE.)
 Other Projects:

(Paper Christmas tree for GCD Studios.  See HERE)

(Countdown Calendar for Basically Bare and Bella Blvd.  See HERE)

(Winter Houses for Basically Bare. See HERE)

I hope you will take the time to see what my Inspiration Elevator team mates chose as they reflected on this challenge.

Now because we didn't have a specific "challenge" this month, I still wanted to keep on with my Art Journaling, and this post seems like an appropriate theme for my thoughts: My resolutions (Intentions) for 2013.

I wrote them down first in my notebook, and then got to work creating the spread.  I went with my favorite color: green, which also reminds me of energy, which I am going to need to do all these things on my intentions list!

I started by heat embossing an arrow pattern from a stencil, and then misted some green and yellow mists over the page and rubbed them in a bit.

Then I went over the the chunky chevron stencil and some "Evergreen" Sorbet (gel paint) from Art Anthology.

A few circle stamps, and some confetti of hearts and pink sequins for contrast.  And I dug out some OLD flowers from my stash, just because they happened to be near me and I am purging some stuff!

Thanks for stopping by for another month of IE!!!  Hope you have the happiest of times in 2013!!

I love your art journaling, Audrey. AND I love that you found another approach for our challenge when you already had a top 10 list. Thanks for not taking the easy way out with a double post. You are so prolific, and it's wonderful that you have this much to draw from for your list! I remember seeing your winter plaque on the Basically Bare blog and loving it - wonderful decor item!
