Hello again, I’m delighted to be back to bring you some amazing inspiration from yesterday’s galleries, as I am writing a bit (ok a lot LOL) later than I should have.. I can’t believe we are already in the end of February, my daughter turned 21 years old (and to me it was yesterday I was driving her to school!) I had always heard that life slowed down once you crossed the 50s threshold, but I think in the era of internet and technology things have changed so much, time seems to be speeding up for me! So I will try make it short. Here are some of the most amazing pages I found :)
Hand in Hand by ashleywb is a delightful, impressive, amazingly put together page that takes over my heart and my eyes are happier. I remember noticing her years ago, when I started discovering that blank space pages were an art that needed to be thought long, as it is more difficult to impress with little than with more, and she remains one of my most loved Blank Space/Minimalist Queens. This page has everything that made me fall in love with her gallery a few years back and more, as she has grown so much (which I didn’t think was possible as she was already a master artist!) The amazing capture of the photo (Love the casual/non posed ones!) the sharp contrast within the photo and the photo with the super clean background, the gorgeous repetition of reds and a dash of yellow to complement…shadows to perfection….and the soul of hers all over the page. Absolute, awesomely awesome stand out!!!!!
This next page, The Journey by Anne of Alamo, not only amazes by the wonderful page design, the visual feeling, the gorgeous touches and, though no blank space here, a bit on the minimalist side catches your eyes, your mind and heart. As if this wasn’t enough, not only she transcribes the journaling, but also explains the background story, and then the page gains an even fuller, intensive feeling, so we can understand better. And we do. We understand, we cry in emotion with her, we delight our eyes and heart with the journey in all ways we can think of. This is what I love about the scrapbooking, not only the beauty of visually gorgeous pages, but when through the art expression of the author we can live, feel, get to know people who become part of our lives. And she excels on that. Once again: Absolute amazing stand out!!!!
There are some people I rejoice so very much when finding their pages and then checking they are not listed as picked in our previous 7 days list…because they get chosen a lot by many of my colleagues and so it happens I can’t highlight them often, which is the case with this awesome next page, The Sweetest by JennMcCabe. (I know she doesn’t need an intro, so loved and admired by me and many more!) And if you put her together with arrows -my second most loved element for my own pages (first one are clouds!) – and sweets… perfect combo to rejoice even more!!! The take on the awesome template is equally awesome, the colors follow the movement given by the arrows and the more than perfectly located, delicate and cute elements together with the journaling and word strips …oh I am at loss for words to explain you how much I love this!!! [insert all possibly adjectives of love existent in the world here]
I have to bring this to you too, because sweet things are so much of a therapy (I think I am not alone on this one!) and the pages I found made with this are impossible to pass, and Sweet Life by eve11ne is fabulous, fun, marvelous on that filling the page in a way that feels like a hand written journal page, so much to see & discover, the awesome mixture of textures with the doodles, also a variety of kinds of word arts, this is music to my heart!!!
And from a gorgeous full page, I found the beauty of one of my latest discovery styles, although I couldn’t keep up with scrapping pocket style for all my pages (even if only so because of lack of photography these days) I have started trying it out to scrap some life events or outings and in doing so, I look for inspiration and there is so so very much fantastic samples to delight one’s heart with, Melissa is one of those who will bring joy to my heart each & every time. March 23-29, 2015 by scrappyjedi is perfection in so many ways: the dominance of close up/macro photos that are master pieces on it’s own each, the beauty of all colors playing in awesome harmony across the double pager, the amount of info in all those bits of journaling (I have to confess I haven’t read as my sight is disastrous this morning) the gorgeous touch of the hand written word arts that compose the perfect spaces of this composition…. all over fabulous, makes me love the pocket scrapping even more!!!
So in love with the pocket scrapping I find another gem from another non pocket scrapper like me, but who does it to perfection in this, 2017-Feb-NickMatt-Park-Copy. Courtney aka bestcee brings such an amazing life to the already awesome template, the softness and strength of the colors perfectly balanced, the everyday joy so present in every block and the making the record even better with the journaling of the family’s day out, absolute happiness from everywhere I look!
From the making a record of everyday (or not so everyday) life, I come across some of the most amazing, intense art journal pages, and more intense feelings and inspiration come along: Butterfly Dreams by InkyDartsworks is so beautiful, so full of beauty and strength and leads to our imagination, there is so much going on here that captures my eyes and makes me disc0ver even more! The blending and the sharpness that live in this page are so crazily well put together, so much life and food to my imagination…. absolutely amazing!
Last but never ever least, this gorgeous creation by someone who can do any style and always catch my heart: ArmyGrl ‘s SLandFS is awesomely tidy and still wonderfully intense, the vintage photograph taking us to an era I would have loved to live in, the amazing composition so masterfully done with the red making an impact, that beautiful left border and the perfection of the tittle work…. I have a heart full of beauty right now!!!!
This is all from me today, I hope these are as inspiring to you as they are for me, please remember you can access their original galleries by clicking on the highlighted name of the LO & author, and leave them a couple of loving words…thanks so much for sharing with us your amazing art, ladies, and thanks so much to those who always come to get inspiration here with us!
