My personal Top 12 for 2012

Catered Crop want to see our Top 12 creations of the last year! Phew - quite difficult, I think. To choose twelve projects doesn't make choosing easier for me - it only elongates the process *lol.

But it is an awesome idea for a challenge as it makes you browse through all your projects from one year of creative activity - and I am sure by doing so one can learn a lot about one's own process of creative development. Or maybe discover some almost forgotten technique you might want to return to.... who knows...(and not to forget: it makes you browse through awesome top twelves from other crafting colleagues *giggle...have already visited and commented a couple of them and will return to it when there's more time - there's loads of awesome projects to be seen!  ;).

My choice of the Top 12 for 2012 are (in chronological order - from oldest to most recent ones):

#1 My first "scrap" piece of art ever - a 3D scenery with a very personal story behind it: "and then the fairy touched his heart"

#2 The "Love and Passion tag" (love the photo booth picture of that guy and that wire heart!)

#3 The "ATC storage" - made from a fantastic metal photo box I altered (first time working with AAI - this is such awesome stuff!)

#4 The "Bad Moon Rising" card (as I love Noir Comics and spooky stories)

#5 The "Love, I am so worried about you!"-tag (just love that couple...she is sooo worried and he has that caring look...has to be true love, hasn't it?...sigh...)

#6 "The Practical Witches' Companion" - an altered Altoids box for Halloween ( I LOVE Halloween!)

#7 The "Let's tell off for play!" - Leporello (altered playing cards and "Oblatenbildchen")

#8 The "Fall is the door to renewal"-tag (using real patina for the first time)

#9 The "Steampunk Willow" (I love working with wire and that special stamp set)

#10 The "Treasure your Memories"-booklet (with old pictures of my ancestors hiking a glacier! Wow!)

#11 The altered domino booklet (using metal leafing and alcohol inks)

#12 The altered tin box containing a self-made buttons-bracelet (a X-mas present for my sister)

Voila! It was a hard job choosing but I finally made it. Thanks to Catered Crop - what a great opportunity to get a look around the fellow crafters and their choices! Thank you for visiting, my dear friends, old and new followers! So glad, you stopped by!
