Is Friday, the weather was beautiful & I was able to cook all afternoon with the kitchen door to the outside open (we are in London, allegedly still in winter!) so I came to write the post with a wonderful happy attitude…& then I remembered…I have been away for a while and this is a borderline thing….. there is so much so amazing in the galleries, one’s heart tends to want to pick 60 instead of 6 pages….but 6 there will be, so I wont take more of your time and show you my picks.
Writer’s Tea by Karen : Everything here screams happy, fun! Her take on the template is beautiful and the mixture of textures and fun colours is perfect…needless to say the photos are cute overload, then there are amazing shadows too. The journaling is the icing on the cake…. such a beautiful record of a wonderful experience! I wish my daughter had a Ms Steffens!
On the same happy feeling is Spring by laluna. Love the fun red, the actual spring feeling (which I welcome with blessings!) The photos are fun and her composition gives me the feeling of looking at one of those wooden boxes with bits & photos inside, the effect of the text in the bottom and the circular stamp at the top, and the shadows all over that give the impression of sun hitting the glass….love this!
And now I have a series of photo-less pages, some more artsy than others but all so incredibly beautiful and, furthermore, describing my mood of the past few months…. This page by naughtsndcrosses for the Dares is a work of art….. I admire this lady hugely, she has a touch for humour and a gift for art….in every style she will always amaze us with her pages, and this is a very good example of it. Love the paints, the blending and treatment of the photo, the apparently careless word art…. a work of art indeed!!!!
The next page couldn’t explain better my whole collection of feelings of the past year, and ..well, still in some degree as my daughter is still a teenager…. Parenting Sucks [sometimes- she says in the bottom of the page & I couldn't agree more! LOL] by mmbstaley. The mood is so well set in the page with the background dripping paints, the collection of cards is perfect, all in all giving the message loud & clear and making a statement with the bold tittle ….yup, I couldn’t agree more!!!!! Great page!
The next one is (carrying on in the same level with my moods & feelings…. ) I Will Survive by scribler. I was singing Gloria Gaynor as soon as I clicked on the page and still am, I am a HUGE fan of ransom alphas, I think I may have at least 15 packs by different designers, can’t get enough of them…plus love the vintage lady, the doodles and sequence scatter….gorgeous page!
To give the closing statement to my feelings comes, last but not in the least least, this page by hondachic called Hope… and hope there is in so many ways…the page is beautiful beyond words, an amazing mixture of textures and gorgeous shadows, love the newspaper print acting with the paints….super inspiring once again!!!
This is all from me today, hope you enjoyed and got inspired by these amazing pages as I did, and, if you have a minute or two, you can get to the original gallery by clicking in the high-lit LO’s name and author, to leave them some love. Have an amazing weekend!
