Finger Pointing (January 16)

16 Jan

I am sure this gets harder and harder each week! After a few hours of browsing the galleries I finally narrowed down my choices for today’s picks – I hope you enjoy them!

girl mom and boy mom by amandaresende

How fun is this?! Such a great split page composition, each section has its own identity but compliments the other so well! Fabulous shadowing here too, I want to reach out and touch those buttons!

Such great use of colour here, the aqua and pink really pop! Beautifully balanced composition – a great example of the rule of thirds! – and those doodles are just fab!

What a great combination of paint and collage, I love all the light text over the top.

Document This by DolceVita

I am so nosey, I wish I could read this! DolceVita has managed to include a large amount of journalling but still given the page heaps of visual interest. The shadows are so very well done too.

Falling Apart by emilymerritt

Awww, poor little chap! This page is a great reminder to scrap those not-so-perfect everyday moments too!

Blog Therapy by JenJ

This is such a powerful page, it takes my breath away.  Please read the journalling. My heart goes out to you and your family Jen.

Girl vs scrap: you think I am happy, but… by jomi

If I paper scrapped, this is the sort of page I would make: lots of scraps and stitching, paint and doodles! This is another page where the journalling packs a punch.

Spaghetti Art by mum2gnt

I had a couple of pages by this scrapper in my short list tonight! This one won because of those fun coloured “spaghetti” strings hanging out from behind the photos! The scale of the photos and the tiny patterns on the paper pieces work so well here.

Sometimes some photos are just that good and bring back so many memories just by themselves that very little else is needed to make a great page!

    Oh, Kate, hours?!! It is such a wonderful thing you gals do for us each day! Your selections are always wonderful. That Spaghetti Art page was one of my big favorites over the past few days. Thanks so much!

    Thank you so much! It’s such an honor. My son is really grateful. :)
    (I have to show him – of course, since it’s basically his cute picture that does it. Hehe…)

    OMG OMG OMG! (spinning in circles!) Sorry it took me so long to come here and say a HUGE thank you!!! See when I found out I was so shocked I planned to fly to the moon and borrow a few thousand speakers from Dolby Sound and shout out to tell the world!!!!!!! But er…………..well let’s say I got distracted!

    So thank you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much! And you say you picked 2 of my pages? Well that’s a double hit for me then!!!!! Even though you only chose one!

    So the cooking of the spaghetti just to photograph it hanging over the edge of the kitchen bin was worth it then!!!!!!

    Thank you again so much!

    Suzie (aka mum2gnt)

    PS. Love this site. I keep track through FB.

    Thank you so much for choosing my page to feature here in this post. It really was a difficult thing to let it out but once I did I really could start to breathe again and start helping her through the tears. I’m honored that you, and others, took the time to read about lil’ ol’ me.
