Finger Pointing ~ June 30

30 Jun

Hello everyone! We have been making the most of the sunshine here today, I hope you have had a lovely weekend too! Here are my picks from the galleries tonight, I hope you enjoy them!

Yale by stefdesign

The combination of the big background photo and the huge brick “Y” is so striking and using the front face of the Y almost as a pinboard for all the extra photos is such a great touch! A fabulous, original page that made me do a double take at first wondering if the Y was a real part of the original photo!

Mon quartier by krizomel

A lovely selection of photos here, I love the relaxed, everyday feel of the page and how krizomel used a limited colour palette to really make those photos shine!

Achieve by cfalbro

Here’s another strong, powerful page that jumped out of the gallery at me! The big, bold alphabet is a great choice for this quote and all the little patriotic touches around the edges add to the emotional impact.

My Kid Has Muscles by Shannon Taylor

Ha, ha, isn’t this fun?! Super combination of the black and white photo with the comic style “muscle” image and a great choice of alphabet for the title too!

King of the Castle by Amson

I love the combination of the curled photo here on top of the sketched and painted background, along with the beautiful soft colours. All the techniques have been handled so beautifully to create this lovely, delicate page.

Urban Exotic by alinalove

From a soft, muted colour palette to an explosion of exotic hues! I love the combination of the hot oranges and turquoises here and the glitter alphabet adds a great touch of shimmer and light to this beautiful summer page, I can almost feel the sunshine!

Hi everyone, motorcity Assen (Jeanine ;)) here, bringing you some beautiful pages from the galleries tonight! I will keep it short, worked the nights before this one and was awake the whole day, so my bed is calling…;). And then tomorrow my vacation starts!!! Yehhhh!!

Lessons learned from my grandmother by Bush Girl What a lovely homage to her grandmother! I love it that the page is kept tranquile, so all the attention is drawn to the story. The scribble and the angelstamp are beautifully placed! The butterfly and heart tell their own story and finish te page respecful.

Bohemian Life by bockel24 This could be a page about me, dreaming of my future bohemian life! Traveling through Europe in my future camper, free as a bird. That’s what I want to do when I retire from my job as a nightnurse. Love how bockel24 expressed this dream!!  Great page!

Hey there Everyone! It’s Crystal here and I am so so excited to be back to finger pointing! It’s been ages since I was last on here and I have missed it! The galleries were chalk full of beautiful pages today, and I loved browsing them. I had about 30 pages pulled up my first go through and had to choose just 6 of those! EEP! I hope you feel as inspired by my picks as I was and I so hope you all have a beautiful weekend!

Different Color by beszteri
I love this so much! I love the message and all the blending. It’s just so beautiful! The brush work adds such a perfect touch and the pop of color really sets the tone of the page and goes perfectly with the message. It’s lovely!

This page is so lovely. I adore AAM pages. They are so fun and are actually quite rare for some reason! This page is fab! all the brushwork and paint is such a great touch and the colors and patterns make me so happy but totally don’t detract from the photos or the theme. It’s super well done!

Happy Thursday folks! For some of us – we are approaching a long weekend ahead and I hope everyone will have a chance to take out your cameras and capture your summer adventures.. and come back and scrap some wonderful layouts!

I hope you enjoy today’s picks!

Shakki ja matti by omuli

I really enjoyed the mixed media in this layout – some gesso splashes behind the layered papers and the papers are full of beautiful, messy painted goodness! I love the painted title work on the blue paper – it really jumps out and looks great! The bended photo also adds to the character of this layout. The stitched paper is also fun!


Frolic by stampin_rachel

I love all the summery colors in this layout. Love the bubble burst brushes, splatters and masking! The clever little pocket and bent photo is really cool too! A very refreshing summer layout all around!


Hit the Restart Button by christine smith

Here is another great therapy layout as I like to call it. Love the florescent colors in this layout! Great collage of word art and random brushed elements. Awesome!


The Alamo by bethdraper

I love this layout! First the geometric placements of the triangles on this layout are very cool! The choice of papers and the neutral krafty papers are very aesthetic! A real great combination of papers and elements! Awesome!


Week 5a + Week 5b by breeoxd

Here is a PL spread I picked for today. A very well laid out and well thought out week:) Love the groundhog day reference:)




You make me smile by Kjersti_W

I really enjoy the paper blocks in this layout. It looks awesome how the colors blend well together and the stripes / dots and chevrons compliment each other. It certainly drew me in when I saw it from afar in the gallery. They layering of frames and card is a real lovely focus around the photo here too. Great job!

Other side by Ann06

The ugly and rainy day has been filled with such beautiful that it became less depressed after seeing this page!This is breathtaking!I’m completely and totally fascinated by the dark pink against the blue, they work perfectly together! Love the stunning photo and the reflection into the water.


Changes by ren

The blending is just superb!I love all the grunge-y-ness here…the greens and blues, the stamped numbers, the big photo blended at the backround and how he is wading out of the water.

This one caught my eye immediately in the gallery! The simplicity here is beyond remarkable! The minimal use of embellishments really makes the photo pops…Love, Love, LOVE it! Beautiful colour on those nails and LOVE how the circles are matching perfectly with the photo palette. Well done!

Look again by ChantalS

This is really eye catching!! I really love the color palette here, not to mention the brushwork with all the ink and paint splatters. The photo blended in the background is stunning! Truly, a spectacular art piece!


When I was 15… by Lime 

I can relate to it..I’m not a grandmother yet but I’m ready to be!!!Even my oldest daughter not think about getting engaged much less married so soon! Really love all the grunge-y with the artsy feel, all the messy, stamps and paperpieces used here. The neutral color palette is gorgeous and make the red color pops and the brush work . . . Brilliant!

Sorry for the late post, it was a busy Tuesday.  Here’s my picks!

Blue by zwyck  I love the design on this.  The blue really pops against the white background, the font choice is perfect and there are just enough details to keep it from being boring.  Lovely!



Beach123 by Sexy__Eyes  Love the blending on this page.  The red elements create a perfect visual triangle and the photo is precious!






Happy Dude by pne123  I love the crisp sharpness of the photos along with the pops of color throughout the layout.  So many clever details!





Elias Love by Lindsan  Great use of a large photo and I’m totally digging this color scheme right now.




Hanging Around by Jenn7  There is something so compelling about this layout.  The blue paper really sets off the black and white photo and the graphic background really grabs the eye.  So well done!






SMART little inventor by gonewiththewind  Love the photos on this page!  So cute.  There are really great details, like the stitched down title and layering of elements.




Hope you enjoyed the layouts!

 The Very Best Ever by amandascraps

Love the playful and boyish look of this page with the design on top of the page. I also like the accenting with the splatters, it sure can get messy eating ice cream.

The Very Best Ever by amandascraps

 Enjoy the Journey by flohbock

This is just beautiful! From the hot air balloons in the photo, mirroring them with the stamps on the background, to the stacked cluster, and the pop of color of the photo against the neutrals. LOVE!

I really like the blended and photocopy effect of the photos. Both asking attention, competing and working together at the same time. Stunning page!
