Hi! Hope everyone is well. I’m here to share with you, as usual, some of the amazing gems in the galleries. I know I keep saying this, but it isn’t an easy task to choose only 6 pages of all the talent around, and after spending over an hour debating as how to take the 25 I had picked to only 6… here they are. Most of the pages I picked today are from artist that are no stranger to these posts, I can assure you I went through many pages in many galleries, but I was unable to resist sharing these with you, so here they are:
A compassionate world by misslovescraps
…this is just perfection in every sense of the world, This girl’s talent knows no limit, but the thing doesn’t stop on the visual thing… she pours her soul out in each page, and this one took my heart to a higher level (not that I needed an excuse to love Li Li more) The page is made for the Digi Dare of this week, and the message she conveys here is one I know many of us would love to see happening…. a 100% stand out. No discussion here.
Both Sides Now by sbpoet
Another outstanding, talented artist whom, as Li Li, needs no introduction if you visit us often, with a page that took me back some years & at the same time fits so much the present time. I am a huge fan of Joni Mitchell, and one of her most amazing songs is, like Sharon tittled her page, Both Sides Now. The page could very well illustrate that song and still can be fitted for so many things …. our duality is in every little thing we live and this page puts it in such a beautiful, incredibly beautiful way…there is light & darkness, and the page so perfectly balanced, love the fact that she did not divide it in half, the flowers so well combined with the brushes and stamps, I’m sure Joni Mitchell would be delighted to see this. Another outstanding page.
Obsessed by Daniele 2012
Love everything here, from the amazing perspective to the journaling, the textures mixture and the fact that she has a photo of a paper LO blended into the page…everything is gorgeous here. Love white backgrounds and in her journaling she talks about her scrapping in a simple yet so familiar to all of us way, journaling is in Portuguese, she is basically telling us how her scrapbooking started and how her making daily pages is not only a way to make a record of her memories but also a therapy that helps her express herself…like most of us. gorgeous page all over :)
Never too Late by chocochoco
Again one of my most admired scrappers here. This page is full of beauty in every possible way, amazing choices of brushes/paints and elements, everything is harmonious and her shadows are so perfect! Plus the journaling is so truthful, inspiring and refreshing, perfect page!
Soar by christellevandyk
As much as I love Art Journal/photo-less pages (which I do a lot of both & is an amazing therapy indeed) what got me into scrapbooking was the need, the wish to preserve my family memories, the every day life turn into magic moments by putting art & soul in them…and I think this fits that description like a glove. A gorgeous, beautiful family page, the pictures are so beautiful and give so much happiness ….the tittle work is gorgeous and so is the way she broke the composition with the vertical cluster from the top, and, of course, the journaling, simply making a record of an every day outing, children at play, family happiness. Scrapbooking in it’s finest.
Last but not least, is Do your best by SeattleSheri.
Here again, scrapbooking in the most delightful way, this page is so full of color and different textures, the photo is amazing and so are the shadows, LOVE the way she did the tittle work, love the layering…love every little detail here, plus being a mum of a performer who started very early in life…I know the feelings in the journaling so well. What a gem of a page for the years to come. Absolutely awesome page!!!
I’ll say goodnight now, hope you enjoyed today’s choices, remember you can reach the original galleries by clicking in the name and author of the LO high-lit, I’m sure even a couple of words go a long way into the heart of these amazing artists! :) Thanks for sharing with us !
