Finger Pointing – February 26th

26 Feb

Hi Friends!  Paula here for your usual Wednesday check-in.  Here are my picks from the galleries today, I hope you enjoy them!

buy-the-shoes by FarrahJobling

That’s my motto! This is probably the cutest “little addicted to shoes person” I’ve seen! Gorgeous use of white space, so soft and sweet. Loving the tiny elements here! What isn’t there to love about this?

London by Madi

It was the graphic feel of the composition and the soft colours that drew me to this page at first. Fantastic pics. What a great great layout! How clever!

pp365-s3

What a sweetheart! I just fell in love with this layout! It is done so beautiful!! The grunge brushes, spots, arrows, doodles, journaling and messy threads work so well together. Love the quote and the space ellements. A true standout to me!

Love 3 | VPD CT Call by MissK 

This composition is absolutely fabulous!  Once I clicked, I was hooked. It is so pretty! Love the monochromatic tones and variations of them! With the great shadowing depth, you really feel like you’re looking down onto the page. The simple elements provide just the right touch to elevate this page into a stands out!

 les bottes jaunes by P’tiscrap

I am so in love with this! It’s so super duper cute, simple, cool and graphic.  Every color and element was chosen perfectly to complement the photo.  Brilliant! I so want those yellow boots! Really LOVE the little feet that comes out really adds a great touch to the page.

I simply adore this layout! This is another great page with gorgeous blendwork – The 3 girls old pic is priceless! Makes me want to scrap our old family photos. I love how this layout flows …the white space works so well. Just a really gorgeous layout! Just gorgeous!

Today | Style by Sokee Another stunning page of a totally different kind, but also a great piece of art! I love the mostly grey-ish and black elements here with the few pops of color.  The pink shoes with silver noses are a very funny and stylish touch. Love this one!

Playing with apps by earl of oxford At first I thought this was hybrid embroidery piece with pictures attached to them. Look at that backgroundpaper!! It looks so real!! And I love what she did with the pictureapps!

We go together by VickyD I love big picture layouts and this one is no exception! She treated the big picture in a wonderful way. Love how the few colors make the page shine. The little arrows give a sence of movement.

Hi everyone and thank you for coming out to see my picks for today’s GSO!

Here we go in no particular order:)

Love Scrap by Katell

Bright, lovely, soft and minimal are the words that come to me when I see this page. I adore the fresh and beautiful photo’s inline and slightly off page. The pinks in the photo and paper / element flows so nicely together! I love the vellum title too – so simple yet so gorgeous!

Starbucks Sevilla by Zwyck

Lot’s of things going on here that I really like! What sticks out to me first is all the mixed media used on this page. I really love the splats and stamps behind the photo. Love that heart overlay on the photo – it really brings it out and gives it character! The color pops of the strip overlay the photo is one of my favorite pieces too! Love those fun buttons too :)

Week 8 left + Right by mrphoto

I just love this digital Project Life spread! The photo’s are briliant and everything is placed so wonderfully. I appreciate all the journaling in the right spots – the colors used and word stamps here and there! I think my favorite is the first snow ‘pocket’ with that beautiful photo with her eyes closed and the element placements – love that flower ‘o’ :)

Hi Sweeite by Chocochoco

oooo – The colors are what drew me in and then I was floored on the use of all the flowers and stamps surrounding that adorable photo and cute doodled picture frame! This page is AMAZING! So much work and thought was put into this and it deserves to be seen by everyone! Usually – I’m a minimalist but wow – the placement and choices of elements is so perfect! Great job!!

For Always by Keely-B

What I love most about this page is all the blocks and the photo being clipped to them:) It’s such a cute and setimental photo of hand holding and perfect for this page! Great paper blocks and elements :) I really like the title placement of ‘for always’ too! Lovely!

Hello! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I’m a bit late today, but (after a couple of months away from digi-land) I’m delighted to share with you some of the most amazing creations in the galleries:

Moi Mael by P’tiscrap

I love every pixel of this page! The elegance of the black & white, the red giving the perfect complement, and the gorgeous photos with great crops make it into a very favourite of mine!

Sprinkler 2013 by Jenn Barrette

Love a designer who scraps, and this is someone whom I’m sure needs little introduction. In this page all screams happiness, an amazing composition with the mixture of textures with the brushes/paints & the photo giving movement to the page…a definite Stand Out!

web-sprinkler2013

Essence by flohbock

This lady is one of the best examples of how less sometimes is much more. Love the painting feel of the background,  the photo crop and edit, the amazing placement of elements with equally amazing shadows…gorgeous page!

IdeesDeChris-essence1-pap1addizcia_ufoizcia

C & T by Sokee

Love this photo crop, the red dominant even though is not supposed to be the star of the photo, the elegance of the cup…and the subtitle couldn’t be more fitting…a bit of love in this page for sure!

PRC_T_edited-1

My Guy by mom2jackaia

This page called my attention for it’s colourful yet super clean composition, love the “falling out of the page” thing, the fun doodled elements and, on a closer look, the journaling so amazing…gorgeous page all together!

MyGuy7

This is all from me today, hope you enjoy these as much as I do & get inspiration from these awesome ladies. Remember, if you can spare a minute or two, you can get to the original gallery by clicking on the high-lit name and author. Have a great weekend!

I am delighted with Eszter’s creativity!! Such a brilliant, creative scary page! I like how the page is divided in two diagoal halfs by the tittle and the little touch of colors and the messy and the darkness here!

Finger Pointing – February 20

Hello, everyone! Katherine here with today’s round of Standouts! I hope you enjoy my choices.

Up first is this beauty by Secima titled AnnaLift. Love the delicacy in the palette with the blue against the muted background. Love the brushwork too.

AnnaLift

Love the color palette in this next one too titled Potter by bawzie. The composition is fabulous and I especially love the stitching, placed perfectly so that it centers your eye on the focal image.

Really love the graffiti, poster feel in this next Standout by SCRAPGIRL1 titled Brooklyn Bridge. The use of type here is really remarkable and I LOVE the capture.

Brooklyn Bridge

Next up is this beauty titled hih by marnel. The design here is really super fabulous. Really love all the circles. And the black and white palette with the pops of red make for a really dynamic color palette.

hih

I fell head over heels for chocochoco’s photo-less layout appropriately titled Something Amazing. The color palette is nothing short of delicious and I love all the layering and every single detail. Such a wonderful work of art.

Something Amazing

Rounding out my choices this evening is bao’s You’re awesome. Really love the clean feel here, the overall simplicity too. The blending of her secondary image is nothing short of amazing. So well done!

Finger Pointing – February 19th

19 Feb

Hey everyone, Paula here with another addition of Wedneday finger pointing goodness!!! I hope you are inspired but the amazing art I found in the galleries today!

Week #1: Mind livelys

I love how she  interpreted this awesome Challenge making a self reflection  & planning the future. I also love the hexagon shapes, with the 3 images representing the three phases and the fact that only the “future” is colored and represented by a rainbow colors image!

Love-Me-week-1_mind

The naked truth by zwyck

I confess that I’m a big fan of Ulla-May’s scrapping, but if you are not you would definitely be after seeing this page! I love the monotone and how it all just flows so beautifully! The choice of elements is perfect and the brush work is beautifully done as usual!

FS by marnel

Marnel always makes such masterful use of white space and this is no exception! The delicate clustering around the photo is so beautiful. I adore the whole soft feel to this page, the soft colors, the shadows…everything!

Seagull by cfile

The witticism of this just drew me in right away! Love the “lost” Seagul’s pic and the speech bubble with the funny question on it! Love that all the things here are BW and only the pic is colored, keeping the focus on it!
