Finger Pointing-July 13th

13 Jul

Hi everyone! I’m working on several projects today but am taking a break to enjoy perusing the galleries. Selecting layouts is always a source of inspiration for my own scrapping, plus it’s simply a real pleasure to give some shout-outs to well-deserving digital artists. I hope you enjoy today’s standouts.

Hot Air Balloon Festival by Neverland Scraps is such a bright and colorful page! First of all, I love hot air balloons and that photo with the reflection just makes me happy! How lucky to get to ride up in one. The flowers, buttons on a string and the stitched banners really tie everything together beautifully.

Tropea Beach by Arte Banale is a beautiful summer page with a classic design. The sand footprints on one side of the page really gives this a unique and special look, especially with her photo. I love all the paint on the background and the journaling under the title. The red “frame” is perfect and gives this page an extra pop.

Masters of war by Margje grabbed my attention right away. Marianne is a dynamic artist and her blending always amazes me. The full-page image of the woman makes a strong impact and the tones are spectacular. When you take a closer look and read the journaling, you will see that this piece is a bit haunting. I love the placement of the text on the silhouette figure. Great brush work and creativity!

Adventure Calls by Ellen T is another bright and colorful layout! Love the photo of the bike riders shot from behind. That always adds great perspective and interest. The repetition of circles is fantastic and I love the strong drop shadows, making them really stand out. Awesome brush work and title! The patterned background paper frames this page beautifully.

Love Yourself by Sokee makes me smile. Most of us scrappers work with so many photos of others and neglect those of ourselves. I love this casual pose and the black & white edit. Framed and tilted in the center of the page, this photo really draws the eye in. There’s just enough patterned paint to preserve the awesome white space and the colors are so pretty. The black elements and journaling strips support the photo and complete this layout with style.

Ballet Moments by profolly is absolutely gorgeous! It makes me feel as if I were going into that building to watch a beautiful ballet. I can’t say enough about how amazing the blending is, especially with the purple ballerinas. There is also an abundance of textures and brush work, all of which compliment the blending. The title script, the beads and the little butterfly cluster are the perfect dainty touches.

I think I’ve been inspired to go create a new layout today. How about you? As always, the bold titles are direct links to these layouts. Please feel free to click on them and leave a comment or two for these artists. Enjoy the upcoming weekend and I’ll see  you in the galleries!
