Hello! Hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to the holiday time. I have some pages, as usual, of the beauty galore found in the galleries, hope you like these as much as I do! We are already in mid December and the galleries are in full festive swing, of course this reflects well around digi-land, now with the added reflections onto the new year, so much so amazing, difficult to choose as usual, but needed to be done, so here are my picks for today:
Magic Winter by Zotova
Love the “happy green” background, the dynamic with the trees shape and the happy photo, something in here makes me smile and it gives out a happiness feeling, which is what we want at this time a year, right?
Awesomety by EllenT
Though I’m always trying to find people who are not often featured here, there are artists that are almost impossible not wanting to pick…and Ellen is one of those, no matter what style she chooses to scrap in, blank space, full page, template or not, middle of the way…every page shows amazing skills & creativity. Love the layering here, the perfect balance on the elements use and the fab work with the patterned backgrounds plus inks/paints…gorgeous boy/male page with amazingly perfect shadows (as usual!) The detail of the stitching makes me completely fall in love with the page, gorgeous all over!
Winter 2013 by amandascraps
Another absolute delight of a scrapper & page, this has so much to stop and discover, so much beauty and skills, one of those pages that makes winter be a precious delight (instead of a draining of my bank account with heating bills LOL) The whole page photo blended to perfection with the beautiful texture of the paper, the gorgeous clusters and the cut out bits, everything combined to perfection playing with the kit’s palette….it gives an overall result that one would want to frame and have on the wall!
Make a Wish by TeaWithLemon
LOVE this page! I was in love and almost obsessive for a while with wrinkled textured papers, then I lost the taste and recently I have seen so many of these so well used, it has come back as a delight in my favourites. I love the way the whole thing is done: the stacked papers with perfect shadows, the gorgeous treatment and blending of the photo combined with drawn elements that give the feel of a paper page… & that tittle! Love scrabble type alphas, and sometimes there is a lot of work involved in making the shadows look well in them, but here is, once again, the feel of a paper page, and the detail of the ripped but of paper is awesome. The ink splatters, subtle doodles, everything coming together in one beautifully scrapped page!
I AM what I choose to become by kpmelly
What a wonderful blocked page! I love this kind of page, especially when, like here, there is so much detail & movement to keep the eye amused….the word art & photos are gorgeous, and the choices she made with the colors around the page make this into a beauty. The journaling is something I am sure most of us having been there in some degree in our lives, love the simplicity of this page and the message within.
December Journal Calendar page, lined by bethr
If you follow our blog, you may have read about my thing about art journal pages: they need to mean something to me (my pages) and in choosing other’s, I need to find something that also could either mean something to me or I can see means to the author. In this case, I love the general thing on the page, and the fact that I would have this printed to use either on my calendar/agenda or for my hand written diary, love the seasonal colors and the elf’s renaissance air, the whole page is a cross of vintage with light and I see it as a very useful thing, would love to fill those lines with some journaling so I maybe adding this to my list of scrap-lifts! Gorgeous page all together!
I hope you like my picks for the date, this is all from me today. If you have a minute or two, I would ask, as usual, to just click on the high-lit name & author of the LOs and leave them a word or two in their gallery, we all know how far a bit of recognition can do to our hearts :) Thanks for sharing time with us, hope these inspire you! Have a great weekend :)
