Taking Stock

'Tis the season to look back and see what the winding down year has brought. I like how it feels to review and how we are given the chance to brush away the leftover crumbs. So before I start to plan and make lists for 2016, thought I would do a little review and show you my favorite pieces from the previous 12 months.
I'm not very good at weeding things down to just a few so
I'll warn you, this is a LONG post! 
(And to think this is just a tiny fraction of the total...what a great art year it has been!)
Cards...



And early in the year I was in a tag craze, and afterwards I created a tag journal to put them in.Here's just a few from the huge pile (like close to 75) of tags  I created.










And then I made some Gelli prints which I loved as much as any finished page.






Some of these would make nice fabric!
And a bit of fabric art-




All of these are in the unfinished stage!
 And a few journal pages that really still make me smile.


































And I did a little sun printing:

 On paper and fabric!
 And finally, my 2 masterpieces!
Ha-ha!

 Wow- I am exhausted!
Ha-ha-ha!
Thanks for bearing with me and going through the whole post!
And thanks for stopping by for a visit!
