Hello!!! Is Good Morning for me here in London, the start of what seems will be a beautiful day. Hope you are all having a great weekend, I am still trying to de-clutter my place… it seems every week brings another “detour”, but I reckon with the good weather I will be able to finish…plus I need to organize digital supplies too… Anyway, let me show you the day’s most amazing picks. Hope you find them as inspiring as I do!!!!!!
I always try to follow our guidelines (of picking different styles) but there are days in which we find more blank space/minimalist pages a lot, today I found some irresistible pages more on the filling up the space….I usually also leave the art journal kind of pages to the end, but these are just so amazingly impressive, both in such different approaches, still both AWESOME stand outs! This first page, Waiting for Love by beszteri is just so beautiful, so full of that warmth and mystery and depth, kind of on the minimalist way, still when you look closer, there is so much work done in the page, and all comes together beautifully. I tried reading the journaling, but I think is the repetition of some quotes or phrases (maybe a song?) whatever it is, it is so amazingly done with the mixing of bolder characters, the whole page just makes my heart sing!!!!!
From the minimalist style of Eszter, I come across this wonderful piece of Art Journal, Monthly Muse AJ Week 4 – Anchor by cfile. I maybe a bit biased here as this was done for an art journal challenge I am hosting, The page was done making each segment a week, I should add that the template is Christa’s creation, she also shared it with everyone and I am amazed with these triangles coming together in one, so much beauty, so much fun too!!! The inclusion of so many elements, the gifted talent to make them come together in such a beautiful and fun piece….I can’t point to something I like more because every little piece here is awesome!!!!! Absolute Stand Out!
Next is 1953 Mom at John Ball Zoo by Karen. Oh this page…. this page has all the superb beautiful, perfect steps I consider one needs for a page to be amazing. I love the old photo contrast witth the almost cartoon-y background paper, which, by the way, is awesome, and my heart loves her for being so gifted to be able to create with such busy background, still this is clean, defined and extremely beautiful…Then there is the shadows (actually one of the things I’m always in awe with her pages) the top border with the ribbon pieces is just so perfect,. makes me want to reach and touch!!! the whole layering behind the photo, the word arts and delicate touches (like the red bit of paint on top right corner!!!) everything here is delightful, out of this world beautiful!!!!
Next, and leaving me with a heart full of joy, is Good Times by dvhoward. Diane is one of those who can go from blank space/minimalist style to a full page that is equally awesome. In this one, a bit on the middle of the contrasting styles… what can I say? I always love the possibilities that digital bring, and in here one can see it at it’s best! the blending expanding into the page, the absolute delightful shadows of the frame (and all over the page) the little touches with the fish and that cute little cluster on top are completed by a beautiful, perfect sized title. As if all this wasn’t enough, there is even a bit of journaling!!!! Absolutely.In.LOvE!!!!!!
This next page, I Love this City by Rubia Padilha, combines so many things I love, like Paris & traveling, full amazingly done page with a hand made feel, perfection of the elements choice and the perfect placement, plus I always enjoy and get inspired with pages with lots of pictures and this one is excellent! The mixture of photos with brushes, paints and more corporeal elements is done in such perfect balance, the hand made feel of the page together with the digital possibilities…oh my heart is singing loud!!!!!! (and now I want to travel!!!) Gorgeous, absolutely and amazingly AWESOME page!!!
After all the colors, almost full pages each as amazing as the other, I came across this superb beauty of monochromatic perfection, Without the Rain by EllenT, another talented scrapper I am sure doesn’t need and introduction I’m so amazed with the page that I am trying to find words to explain but my mind keeps getting drawn to the beauty in that rainy night. The composition is gorgeous, it may seem simple but once you look closer, all the tricks for blending, locating and make harmonious beauty, you see intensive and wonderful work that has been put together . Just perfectly beautiful!!!!!!!
With this amazingly wonderful page by MRivas there is also so so much, but the title work takes the Grand Prize!!! The photo is already beautiful and being enhanced by the layering makes it even more so. Here again the fabulous monochromatic speaks volumes, the word art sticker and, oh yes, that awesome tittle work!!!! Maribel is always gifted with her pages, her PL is so amazing, and i n here we see an extra dosage of her talent with so much creativity… I would print it and have it in my walls!!!
Back to the full pages , this, Oil’s King Sleepover by Heather B is one of those that keeps inspiring me to keep filling my own,. The gorgeous so very happy picture gets my heart happy all the way here, the main photo reflecting the beauty and fun of this family, Love the piece that has the journaling, the amazing bold colors that complement the photo, the gorgeous cards & elements, and not forgetting the shadows!!! I also love seeing these boy growing up, another blessing of our scrabooking: the being part of families or people all over the world,!
This next page, Butt What? by jesskab is one of those designed to be shown to the girlfriend in a few years time…!!!!! Even though in a different style of the previous, this also kinda follows the monochromatic way. I am amazed by so much of the whole page!!! The composition is amazing and that big super well composed tittle, the mixture of Alphas and fonts, the touches here and there to enhance the page and bring you the humor and fun that is so treasured!!!! All together a jewel!!!!
As all good things, this needs to come to an end…of course it has been extremely difficult to keep to a minimum amount of pages, so I will show one more page, this gorgeous one by betsyfru. Love the paper chosen for the background, is perfect!. The photo a happy one, beautiful view, and the embellishments together with the golden tittle just makes you be on a holiday now!!!
And with this I ll leave you, Have a great, wonderful weekend and, remember, you can get to the individual galleries by clicking on the high-lit tittle of the LO & Author, we all know how an appreciation comment can change the way we feel. :) Once again, I hope these are as inspiring to you as much as they are for me!!!! TFL!!!
