Hi! and good day to all of you, wherever time in the globe that would be. Is early morning of the Saturday for me, I started looking through the galleries last night but I have been really tired lately (I usually spend my nights awake) so I saved what I had and took over this morning when I woke up. As usual, the amount of talent, beauty, contents and general amazement is so high, and Fridays we have always a lot more posts than usual, so that my heart breaks with every tab I need to close to keep this post into the reasonable numbers, but here you go: some of the most beautiful, amazingly well put together pages I found from yesterday’s posts!
Vacation by Amien1 is one of the most beautiful, inspiring summer pages I have seen lately. The composition -which comes from a template, but I have seen many pages done with the template, many of them equally beautiful, but in this case her own personal touch turned into a proper composition and this is, I think, the best way to use templates. I used to be dead against them, until some wise words from Vanessa (one of the ViVa Artistry girls) made me re consider and I fell in love with the whole thing…. interpreting a template well is most definitely NOT easier than scrapping a page without (at least for me) and though I find millions of templates I like to keep exactly as they are, when I find this kind of thing, the thinking a bit beyond and adding a great deal of personal touch, I am in awe. I love the clever use of the chevron/arrow paper making focus on the big photo, the photo itself makes a piece of wonderful memory keeping and artful photography.. that is one of the most beautiful ways to take me back to my beach, feet on the sand and water running near, the paint that continues the sand and the gorgeous tittle work plus journaling: LOVE all the way!!!!
Pokemon Go! by Lor is another show of perfection, memory keeping with fun, great photography and her amazing talent put to work with one of the hot/trendy subjects of the moment. I remember the Pokemons as something my little brother was doing (gazillion years ago? LOL) , never paid much attention but I was kind of forced to find out what this time is about, and looking at this amazingly gorgeous page fits so well the description! The photos (as usual with Laurie) are perfect and so much fun, the wonderful work in the background with the paints, the superb title work and the delicate way the elements are placed, all together makes this into one of the most gorgeous , proper Stand Outs!!!
Seaside by Stefanie brought me back to the beach and the warmth and beauty of my own seaside. She is one of the most awesome memory keepers I have known in all my years scrapping, her pages always make me want to stop and look at them for hours, and this one ticks all the items in my list… the amount of gorgeous photos, the way they are lined up, the whole thing makes the eye move around with delight, love the tittle work, the word arts and delicate embellishment, the mixture of textures with perfect shadows, I keep coming back to look at it and keep finding more amazing details, like the lower left hand side…not sure if that is a card or she added the strings running along the wavey background, but most certainly take the page to even higher levels with the cluster, that lighthouse….and, once again, those rocking shadows! all here is music to my heart!!!
Next one is one of my most loved PL people, RebeccaH with a double pager: Forest park Left & Forest Park Right. Both pages, individually and put together, are a show of beauty, elegance, amazing family life & fun. The photography is gorgeous and the cards she chose are perfect. The delicate touches keeping the elements to the minimum, the addition of the beautiful shadows, all together make something I would print and hang on my wall!
Right, so, after some absolutely amazing photography and memory keeping, I found some awesome pages with artful thoughts on focus. This next page, Where by msbamf2you is something that not only I noticed straight away within a page full of gorgeous pages, but that completely grabbed my heart when I looked closer. I myself can feel like she got into my head and put together all the questioning I have for myself, and I am sure many of you would too, the state our planet and societies are in all over the world. Whatever way you look at this, is perfection. The whole tittle/quote/question in the way is done, with also those perfect shadows, all the elements running in the background, the amazing representation of time with all those clocks, the amount of elements layered, the beauty of it all, that window…that…well, pretty much everything here is AWESOME!
Another amazing photo-less page is this one I can also identify hugely with, Just Another Bad Day by tammybean04. I often have trouble using little people in my pages, but this as an example makes me want to go scrap it now! Love the layering, the deep defined shadows, the way the word arts/quotes are placed, gorgeous elements, amazing color palette, everything here works so beautifully!!!
This one isn’t technically a photo less page, but so, so marvelously put together, you can’t tell what is part of the photo and what is elements added! We Love Vegas by weaselwatchr made me re think my shying away from neon!!!! The signs are gorgeous and she has so cleverly mixed here a wonderful amount of them without making it heavy, the whole thing is fun, good times, Love love LOVE this!!!!!!!!!
Last but not never ever least, is this absolute delight Hybrid Card by MlleTerraMoka. This is so beautiful, so perfectly done, elegant, the colors so beautiful (and I am one who shys away from yellow!!) I may have to lift this, even if on digital! The simplicity and elegance makes it brilliant for anything I can think of, even a wedding invite would look great in this!!!!! Superb!!!!!
And here is where I say Good Day to you again, hoping you have enjoyed these and got inspired as much as I did! As usual, you can get to their original posts by clicking on the name of the page and author high-lit for each post. If you could spare a minute or two to leave these awesome people some love, we all know how much a word of compliment can change our day for the best! Have a great weekend!
