Hello! Good evening/morning/afternoon! Hope you all had (are having) a great week! We are very excited here in the UK with the start of the new series of Downton Abbey, so for once in my quiet long life…I am so looking forward to Sunday! LOL Ready to share with me some awesomeness from the galleries? Here we go:
Travel Around the World by Celinoa Designs by flo06nice
I love travel pages with a passion. We used to travel a lot, and I still have tons of trips I want to scrap & print,therefore welcome all inspiration I can get…this page won my heart from the thumbnail. Our travel books always finish with a shot at the airport, and in here there is such a great dimension created by the photo blur, together with the depth of the paper’s color and the gorgeous layering with the world art that also lend some fun with the vibrant colors. Love this!
The Running Child by alb52
I had seen this page earlier and I was amazed by such perfection…amazed, not surprised. Just in case you are not familiar, the author is designer Amy Martin, whose creations are amazingly beautiful in design, and I am discovering her as a scrapper and loving every bit I see. I love designers who scrap, I think they create better kits/products as they understand it from the scrappers’ point of view, and in this page that point of view is clearly excellent. Love white background pages, and here the white is wonderfully managed by gorgeous shadows, I particularly love the attention to detail in the mixing of textures in the page…I would have frown if any of the overlapping things here were a not possibility on a paper LO -like people who leave text written on top of elements…not sure how to explain…- and in here it could have easily happened, but the cut of the tittle when going from one surface to the other is perfect. The page has everything I love and all done to the same perfection: tittle/alphas, different textures, shadows, word arts, fonts, stitches…and the journaling takes a very own crown: not in an everyday way, absolutely amazing.
B is for boy by Macafus
I saw this amazing page when I was done with my picks and had to move things around because I thought this deserved a place in tonight’s post. I know is not the general opinion, but I love very dark, deep shadows, I feel it gives a depth, especially in dark backgrounds. Love the so many colors here, the super cute photos, amazing take on the template and the way she worked it as to having so many patterns & colors but still not overwhelming, perfectly clean!
Time by sunnie2004
Moving onto the more art journal, photo less page, this lady is champion tonight. There is such an amazing amount of blending going on in this page, and I love the way she adapted all the Biblical word art to also blend into the page….which is something I would gladly print & hang on my walls!
Frantic/Calm by taxed4ever
And more creative genius coming out of the duality challenge! This page is strong and original, gives the constant message of our reality. The visual strength in this page is re-enforced by the superb word art, fabulous color scheme and her own photo with so much punch….and the fact that she added a photo of herself (and what an amazing photo it is, right? Love when I can “feel” a page and this one has enough feeling to keep me amazed!
Shamelessly-Addicted -card-s by Donnatopia
To finish with today’s picks, this is one of my “to do list” items…I have so much admiration and respect for those who leave the computer & make the beautiful creations of designers into amazing every day pieces. I love how beautifully she crafted these, with colors inviting to the drink of choice of so many of us!!! Inspiring!
Hope you liked these! Remember you can click in the image to take you to the original gallery to leave them some love! Have a great weekend!!!
