Ten Favorite Tutorials of 2010

10 Favorite Scrapbook Pages from 2010

I'm wrapping up 2010 with a look back at some favorite art adventures from the year.  Today we'll be looking at my ten favorite scrapbook pages from 2010.  Tomorrow a look back at my ten favorite blog post tutorials from 2010.  Thursday will be a peek back at my ten favorite non-scrapbook projects from the year.  And finally on Friday I will have the first post for my big year-long art project for 2011!  (I hope you'll join me!)

So without any further ado, here are my favorite pages I made during 2010 (some of which I haven't even shown on this blog before!  Are you a careful reader, do you know which ones are never-before-seen?):

Okay, so I cheated.  There are 12 layouts here.  I just couldn't narrow it down to 10.  So, let's just call it my top 12 layouts of 2010!

Here are some observations:

  • There were clear periods of the year during which my mojo was working.  Conversely, there were clear periods during the year when it just wasn't.
  • An enormous number of the layouts use circles.
  • An enormous number of the layouts have paint on them -- and even more specifically a hand painted title.
  • An enormous number of the layouts use cardstock as a background (as opposed to patterned paper).
  • An enormous number of the layouts tend to weight to the left.  
  • An enormous number of the layouts use my messy cursive handwriting.
  • Not one of the layouts records a birthday.  One records a holiday event, but the journaling is more about the relationship between my brother and his friend. 
  • About half of the layouts record a relationship or an emotion, the other half an event.

I don't know that any of this means anything, but definitely some stuff for me to think about going forward.

How about you?  Do you have a top ten (or twelve)?  What are some trends you notice in your own work from this year?
