Today was a day of shapes and chevrons in the galleries, and oh what wonderful picks I have for you to see! As we finish up the last of November, these picks remind us of all the beauty to be found in every season, every life.
This is Liz J., and these are my picks.
What an absolutely stunning, artsy, amazing page! I love how the text bits outline and give shape to the face. Terrific artistry here, and the perfect word art too. Deborrah was kind enough to share her technique, so we can all channel our inner artsy too! Really lovely, and a great way to get started with today’s post!
The paper cut outs here add amazing dimension! I really like how the cut outs are both above and below the outer edge framing, it’s just a visual treat. I really studied this page. This was a great way to showcase a family photo shoot, with an unusual design and beautiful elements. This was an easy pick, well-deserved!
I love when people use kids’ art work in a scrapbook page! Such a clever way to incorporate a real part of life. I love the bright, whimsical feel of this page. Great handwritten font for the journaling, which really adds to the homey feel. And English muffins pizza as a homework prize! Genius. Love the use of the chevron paper as background too, it totally worked here without being too busy. Cute page!
Check out this real-life paper page using very cool die-cut leaves backed by patterned paper! I love the big, bold elements she used, against the wood grain background paper. The banners nestled in the leaves are a nice touch. Very fun autumn page, which I was drawn to by its elements! Wouldn’t you love to try this page digitally? Especially the shadows!
I have no idea if this one originated with a template or if this artist created that wicked cool chevron look herself, but this page got me to look twice and then again! Very fun and creative background, and the photo and elements suit the mood perfectly. I like the pretty doily behind the photo stack adding a completely different and very realistic looking dimension.
I am loving all of the autumn and winter pages popping up in the galleries! This one is wonderful, with its near-monotone colors, with just a sprinkling of color in the leaves. I absolutely love the use of the postage frames as an accent! Nice use of the word art and unexpected sequins to adorn this turning of the seasons page. I really enjoyed this one.
So that is it for the last day of November! I hope you enjoyed today’s picks, and if so, please click on the linked title and leave some praise for the artist. Have a great rest of the week, and ready or not, here comes December!
