Now that the storms are over for a while (I hope), I can get down to the business of sharing my gallery favorites for today. The picks today include a cute hybrid project, a sweet back to school page and a very cool page using digital techniques.
Here We Come by connieg is a fabulous back to school page. I absolutely love the use of the notebook paper for the background (and how cute is the placement of the date)! The vertical orientation of the composition leads our eyes through the words, elements, and journaling with a quick stop at that adorable title. And how darling are those photos! A wonderful “memory in the making” page!
In her page AnnaLIFT 9/24/16-9/30/16, myssp has masterfully included multiple photos from a senior photo shoot. I love the variety of photo treatments she’s included – blended photo, framed photo, and split photo. The three burlap strips with the wordart create a perfect triangle that points to the one photo while framing the others. Awesome composition!
I love playing with different technqiues in photoshop and it looks like ziemon does too. Believe it or not, according to ziemon, the original photo she used in her Lion Art page showed a tan-colored lion against light grey bricks. To create this stunning – and colorful – piece she created a custom background and then used a variety of layers, blending modes and filters to create the different colorings in each brick. She’s created a stunning work of art and a wonderful inspiration piece.
I first saw t_jk_p by hkati on my Facebook feed and was immediately drawn to it. The beautiful photo treatment, gorgeous blending, and perfect placement of brushwork create a stunning piece of art. I love how she’s used borders on the edge to keep our focus on the photo. A beautiful piece of art that would look gorgeous framed and hung on any wall!
I love the look that bekfek has achieved in her page Everlasting Love. I love the use of a large blended photo as a background with more traditional element clusters “framing” it. The combination of font and alpha for the title is a perfect match for the combination artsy/traditional look of the page. The white photo frame is the perfect addition to draw your attention to the focal point of the photo. Gorgeous page!
And finally we have a hybrid project. I LOVE school/office supplies and I love seeing artists use their digital stash to personalize those items. The hybrid notebook cover by mimisgirl is just such a project! I, for one, would love t0 use that cute notebook!
