Going Forward...Looking Back

Welcome to the blog hop for the first Sassy Studio Designs release of 2013.  We are Going Forward with new images and Looking Back at things we loved in 2012.  We have 2 days of hopping fun for you, today and tomorrow.  You should have arrived  here from the Super Sassy Tanya's blog.  If not, the complete list is at the bottom of this post.  My image is Ursula.  She is one of my favorite characters.  We were asked to use one or more of the following in our project:

Favorite Sassy saying or sentiment
Favorite tool
Favorite paper
Favorite sketch
Favorite technique
Favorite style
Favorite color
Favorite brand
Favorite embellishment....ribbon, flower, bling, mesh etc...

I chose my favorite paper by Anna Griffin.  I worship her but tend to mostly hoard the papers.  I really should start using them more often.  I also used my favorite technique which is to use chipboard and UTEE to make the frame.  After adding several layers of UTEE, I reheated it and stamped it for texture.  I also used another of my favorites, glossy accents, on Ursula's body.  And my absolute favorite thing...Copic markers.

We were also asked to share our favorite SSD project from 2012.  Mine would have to be Cleopatra.

I had so much fun coloring her!!!!

Two randomly selected comments will be picked each day to win 2 images, and there will be 1 randomly selected winner each day of the hop to win all 4 images.  These will be picked from comments left through out the hop.  To be eligible to win you must comment on each blog for that day and comment on the SSD blog.  So please leave us all a little love as you hop along.  Also, remember to head back to the SSD blog tomorrow for Day2!
