My Favorites Projects of 2013 a year in Review!!!



So I decided to do a year in review the way I had done it last year and of course my indecisions couldn't leave some layouts out. So some months have one layout and others have a few. I guess my mojo was high in February and December. 

<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>

January

This first layout is very special to me. Its one I created at the beginning of the year. I wrote all my wishes and dreams for this year all over the page and I thank G-d every day that they came true.


<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>

February

These first three layouts I designed for my GD at Prima. I was over the moon excited when I was chosen to be a guest designer for Prima and I put my heart and soul into these layouts. They are favourites of mine.




The last two layouts for February are also favourites of mine because they depict love in the purest form. The love I feel for my family is one that I can't really describe in words.



<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>

March

This inspirational canvas I made using one of my favourite quotes. I created two of them, one for my best friend and one for myself.


This is not only a favourite layout, but its also a favourite picture for 2013. I just love how the butterfly stood on my daughter's head like a headband.


<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

April

This next mixed media layout is not only a favourite in colours and butterflies, but it speaks of one of the greatest virtues which I have to learn in this lifetime.


I loved making this OTP. Video is posted on my sidebar. Its another one of my favourite pictures but also really special project hanging in my house.


<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>

May

This inspirational canvas I created for a special friend who helped me a lot in the past year and is very special and dear to my heart.

<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>

June
I just love this summery layout using an old picture of my son


<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>

July

These two projects below are two of my favourite Prima projects sent for this summer's CHA. One of the biggest dreams come true this year is making it on the Prima design team and I'm thankful for that every single day!!



<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>

August

This soft and delicate girly layout feels as if my daughter is in a magical fairy garden. The video on how I made this layout is in my sidebar.


<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>

September

This is a very artsy layout which I love very much.


<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>

October

This mixed media canvas is so very special as it depicts a butterfly which is my favourite creature. I loved creating it.


<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>

November

Somehow my favourite projects from October on, were created using mainly white, blues and greens. This one below has a lot of white space but its a fave for sure.


<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>

December

I had a really hard time choosing projects in December so I took these three however I could have added the whole month on this one.





I just want to thank every single one of you again for inspiring me, for visiting my blog and for being there by my side this whole year.

I'm so very grateful for all the friends I've made all over the world. You make this world a better place, united in some small way, bringing peace, love and most of all passion for art.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart and I wish you a very Happy New Year.

May all your dreams and wishes come true and may you be blessed with health and happiness always.

Love,

So many glorious works, Keren - I love the "butterfly hairband" layout, and the amazing canvas from May, and the blue/green/white phase towards the end of the year enchants me... hope it goes on a little longer!

Wishing you and yours a wonderful 2014!

Keren, please start teaching classes. Seriously, you are such an incredible artist and your work so lovely... I am glad you share your process through videos but I would love to sit in a class with you and learn! That being said all your choices are stunning. I loved all of them but the picture of your daughter with the butterfly and the blue butterfly canvas were truly memorable. May you have a healthy, happy and successful 2014!

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each one of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. (Albert Schweitzer). You know what you mean to me Keren and what I feel about your art. Today and always. Happy New Year darling! xoxox

Wow, your work is always a great inspiration, Keren...and each of these is no exception and I can see why you have chosen them as your favourites. 2013 has been an amazing year for you, scrappy wise, and I hope 2014 will be just as amazing for you. Happy New Year!
