Wow, the end of January already, how did that happen?! Here are my favourites from the galleries today!
The moment I saw this page I knew I wanted to lift it! This is such a great birthday page and a fun way to show all the little characteristics, hobbies and likes of the birthday boy! Fabulous composition and great use of colour too, a page like this could easily get really busy really quickly but Gabi has pulled it all together so well with her choice of colours.
Jenny79’s Love you
So pretty and so beautifully shadowed – a lovely delicate page just perfect for the subject matter.
Another mosaic style page, but this time a photoless one. Clever use of the newspaper as the backdrop, this celebration of papers is such fun!
marnie’s Her Hope
There are a lot of art journal style pages around at the moment, but this one really stood out to me. Click the link and read what Marnie wrote about the page, it’s heartbreaking. This is what art journalling is about for me – expressing your emotions, both positive and negative.
Marussia’s some notes about what Marc is watching
I really like the collection of random notes and all the symbolic elements here.
Maygirl’s In the armchair
The colours first grabbed me here and then when I looked closer all the fun little details really drew me in, I really like how he appears to be reaching out of the background photos to grab the paper on the table. The repeated finger pointing photo helps create a strong focal point round the title.
nevache’s In The Old Days
This is so beautifully done. The journalling is so touching and the gorgeous sepia tones throughout really help create a warm, soft, aged feel to the page which is totally in keeping with the subject.
So fresh and well composed, simply a lovely page.
rebecca h’s Preschool Party
Just look at that journalling! I love how it becomes the pattern on the background paper as well as telling the story. Very cleverly done! Fun little touch ‘cutting’ the paper round the “love” title above the photos too.
