Hello my dear people… hope you are all having a great weekend and enjoying the festive feeling around! I had a very intense and tiring day yesterday, it was my daughter’s opening night on a production of A Christmas Carol here in London, she auditioned, got the female lead (which was Mrs Cratchit as the ghost were represented by puppets), and last night we saw her shine on stage once again, I got home excited & happy but my body was screaming rest so here I am today with …oh..so many amazing pretties in the galleries…I may have overdose on amazing inspiration and I have to say, I wasn’t able to reduce much the amount of pages I found (I already took down 25 tabs I thought should be featured…so go figure !!!!) I maybe briefer than usual (at least I will try LOL) as I have tons to do even without leaving my bed…but here you have some awesome inspiration.
2015 Album Cover by djp332: I love this. I make lots of covers as I am always intend to print the books, though not always happens, when I get to do it, it is such a pleasure when the cover shines on it’s on right…which is the case here: elegant, beautifully composed with amazing choices (love the texture of the numbers!!!!) perfect elements additions so overall is an impact that would make me want to look at the book!!! gorgeous!!!
Wrap by Intense Magic: No secret, she is one of my top favorites, every page of hers is a master piece…and this got my heart all the way. I love kraft paper, and the idea of using it to wrap most presents with it and decorate I think it will be adopted by us next year (funny thing is I think here in England we call it wrapping paper!). Love her journaling and the tittle work, that alpha fits so perfectly there, the beautiful bracket mat, everything here is super clean lined, and still has so much warmth coming out of the whole thing…..Love.
Who, Me? by emmasmommy: oh how delightfully cute is this? from the photo and this kid’s mischief coming all the way through it, to the perfection of layers and the absolutely amazing shadows…and the journaling that could have been written by me when Sarita was 2 or 3…..LOVE this so so much!!!!!!
I haven’t noticed many Hanukkah pages this year, even I, who usually make a card for the Jewish part of my family, didn’t get to it… so when I found this, I had to share it! Love the big photo with the bright focus and the semi transparency, the beautiful title work, gorgeous delicate elements, and the perfect seal with the page frame. Tradition, by bjc
Skating Lessons by norton94: Oh I am SO happy finding a page by Krista, an amazing memory keeper, superb LO artist!!!! she has been one of my most favorites the past few years, but she doesn’t scrap as much as I would love her to…so finding this makes my heart sing. Love the photo, the take on the template, the big tittle, the word art, perfect shadows….gorgeous elements (LOVE when a kit or collection is used out of theme with such perfection as here!!!!) those clusters are perfect. Awesome all over!!!!
And still on the subject of skating/winter, I found more amazing pages: A sky story by musicmom3, with an amazing journaling..(they taught themselves how to ski through a magazine!!!!) I love the blending with the sticking out frames/out of frame thing and that gorgeous tittle!
and a more minimalistic kind of page with a perfect, superb full page photo by DaDy: L’Air est pur (the air is pure, which I believe so…would love to be able to stand in a place like that!!)
and an awesome, spectacular, stunning page by the amazing Lynne Marie: Skating in Shannon Park. The perfect composition, the gold contrast with the perfect photos, the skaters which give a perfect touch to the whole thing…. so much beauty: perfection!
and a page that show how much can be done with mixed media apart from the usual art journal/photo-less pages….a gorgeous composition, perfect round up page from Christa/cfile: Year in Review (M3)
Last but amazingly not least: She took a Selfie by NBCrowabout: it happens that it was when I first saw Nancy’s creations that I fell in love with art journaling, and to this date this, the mixing of parts and fun, crazy composed pages are what art journal is to me. This is so amazing, shines and even has music to me….I suggest you also have a look at her whole gallery, I had a hard time trying to pick just one page!!!! she is amazing inspiration!!!!!!
So with this I leave you to your weekend. Remember that clicking on the LO name and author will take you to the original gallery, if you can spare a minute, we all know much much a word or two can mean in changing the mood of our day. Have a great evening and weekend, Happy Holidays, everyone!!!
