Hello my lovelies… hope everyone is having a great morning/afternoon/evening wherever you are. Here I am coming to rescue as our Katherine couldn’t be here, and I slept almost the whole day after spending the night chatting with my 19 years old daughter who came back home after a date a bit tipsy…we had a great laugh and even got her to admit that I am ALWAYS right! LOL So here are some of the most beautiful pages I found in the galleries:
Oh Happy Day by sarahbhb: so pleased to be able to start with this awesome work by Sarah, one of the most talented hybrid artists around. Love her pocket pages and the latest work with the art journal type of pockets is beautiful, fun and such a delight! This one I could most certainly have on my walls, love the quotes she picked and the light feel this has, with the amount of “undo” I use in digital, I’m not sure I could produce anything of this quality without going through $$$$$ of supplies…. Love all three pieces here, the butterflies super well located and the added ribbons & ricrac plus that cute cluster with the leaves- Awesome work all together!
Just Be You by Karen B: is not every day I come across British scrappers and Karen is one of my favs!!! Her photography is awesome, the way she tells us her family everydays, the gorgeous use of blank space…love the black & white here, the photo is impeccable, that background book-eh type of paper is perfect for the photo and her composition mixing doodles with the more corporeal butterflies & tag is perfect balance and makes for a great page, which is made even better by the fact that she always tells us what goes on in her creations, even when the page has no journaling, she does in the page description/credits….. I know you maybe tired by now to read/hear me say this but I have to say again: the page gains a whole new dimension, goes into whole new level if you tell us what is all about… superb page Karen and thank you for always telling us about the content of your pages!!!!
To somewhere far from now by karbolik is such a jewel!!!!!!!! The photos are amazing, her composition such an original, awesome one, with the overlapped photos with papers, the tittle done with the mix of the stamp and the word strips…gorgeous colors and that blur image of remembering the past when still in the present reflects perfectly her journaling. This page done for Pink Reptile Designs blog challenge is perfect, on the spot with the journaling done in different bits of paper and labels, there is a blog post before the challenge one about the three ways with journaling by JennMcCabe (another super fabulous artist herself) , and this represents the challenge so perfectly, plus gives me a full insight on this amazing scrapper…. the ferry trip turns into a travel back in time and a beautiful show of the bond of friendship …and shows one of the most amazing sides of Turkey’s Istanbul- somewhere I hope I will get to go back, I was there in 1991 and loved every minute of my trip! Amazing page, this ticks all the boxes for perfection in my books!!!!
Soul Cleansing by Elysah: a gorgeous art journal page by one of my top fav art journalers…. this girl has the gift putting her soul in each page and I love how she combined so many pieces in this page!!! the amount of blending here is in the background and the wonderful, uplifting use of the paints & gesso bits and the word arts…another piece to have on the wall, beautiful and happy , perfect page!!!
Black Caps by Debbie Hodge: Another page that checks all the right boxes for me, this comes from my new found love: the Get It Scrapped site. I found this amazing place, funnily enough, through a GSO pick by our Jeanine, who has shown me some of my most loved pages in the past year or so, including her own ones. I clicked on that page and had a look around and that was it… I have found so much beauty and fun in their gallery!!! There are lots of amazing pages in all styles there, but I thought this one has everything that makes a scrapbook page be a treasure for me: gorgeous photos, beautiful elements, different techniques, a story told by photos & journaling, and that gorgeous title…everything here is perfect. Love the big photo blend with a lower opacity, the perfect tittle font with the added red dot (LOVE!) and combination with a typewriter font of the journaling is so beautiful, a perfect page!!!!!
Last but never ever least, is this gorgeous page by Anita/apottinger, Point & Shoot. We were in some CTs together for a while until I had to step down as my health wasn’t helping, so I know her pages have that wonderful beauty of the family life and love each & everyone of them…and in this one love the absolute delight of the photo, her kids are gorgeous, her treatment of it that puts the image so in sync with the kit, and here comes one of the most amazing bits of this page: I would not buy this kit if I saw the preview…but would run to the store after seeing this page-Amazing layering, gorgeous color management…absolute treasure!!!!
So, this is all from me until tomorrow (I think?) hope you enjoy these pages as much as I do, if so, please, take a minute or two to click on the name of the LO & author that will take you to the original gallery where the page is posted, and leave them some love, you all know even a word or two can make everyone’s day… :) Have a great one yourself!
