2015 top ten

Imagine Heather Telford

Of the 170 posts I have written this year, here are the ten that were viewed the most. I guess you could call this ‘the viewers’ choice’ post. If you click on the photos you can get to the original post with all the nitty gritty details.

Orange blooms Heather Telford

Of course the most recent posts don’t really stand a chance under these terms but that is way ‘best of 2015’ lists go.

watercolour with distress stains Heather Telford

The card above is from a video tutorial, one of only two I made this year! I’m sorry; you deserved more.

fresh poppies Heather Telford

The one above performed surprisingly well considering it is one of my ‘loose and messy’ ones; sometimes I wonder if other people don’t like them quite as much as I do.

Christmas Bister Heather Telford

Another ‘messy’ one which I was quite excited about because it was one of my early bister experiments. It was the only 2015 Christmas card to make the top 10.

Birch trees Heather Telford

I love this one, not sure if I managed to part with it. If I did that person should know they’re pretty special.

Lakeside happy birthday Heather Telford

This one is a classic example of ‘using a sentiment to cover up a mess’!

Happy News Heather Telford

The ‘stacked die’ technique made from the same panel featured in the card at the top of this post.

Pink poppies Heather Telford

One of my carefully painted ‘not messy at all’ poppy cards.

birthday bister Heather Telford

Last but not least, my older daughter’s birthday card, another blue bister creation. There are 4 blue cards, 3 pink cards, 2 orange cards and 1 green card, which may mean my readers like blue and pink as much as I do!

Thank you for your feedback through viewing and commenting during 2015. You, my readers, mean a lot to me; it is a delight and a privilege to share my creating with such an appreciative audience. I will be back with my favourite creations from 2015.

    Amazing cards, all of them1 i know I viewed and commented on some but missed others that I’m glad I got to see herein. Looking forward to seeing your favs next. 🙂 BTW, I like the loose painting/inking but sometimes when I’ve done it and don’t get many comments, I wonder if it’s because the viewers see it as sloppy instead of intended? I have found that many viewers, even those who comment, don’t read the narrative/descriptions. Hmmm.

You are amazing, and I thank you for delighting us all and sharing your tips and techniques. You are so inspiration, and I shall continue to keep in mind in 2016 my goal to try more watercoloring. It’s certainly a delight, having tried one and loved it! Hugs, sweet friend, and I wish you and your family a happy and blessed year ahead!

    Stunning collection!!

  25. Karen Petitt says:

    This is my idea and ideal artistic heaven all on one blog post Heather! I love blue and pink and this year I have branched out a little more but have to admit they are my go to colours and tend to be the cards I like/adore or fall in love with more and your cards are the ones that I regularly fall in love with.
    I wanted to make sure that I said thank you to you as I am subscribed I don’t comment often so a huge big thank you for so much inspiration and for constantly inspiring me to play and do better at my card art: your cards are wonderful! Karen x

  26. djkardkreations says:

    I’ll tell you what I just told Marika. You should be selling your card art to a high-end greeting card company, if not transferring your designs to full canvases to hang in art galleries! You have exceptional talent, Heather, and you continually blow me away with it!! Happy New Year!! Hugs, Darnell

  27. I feel very special receiving the beautiful birches card! I have one of your cards framed and think this will take it’s place on the end table for the winter. Thank you so much!
