Finger Pointing – June 17th

17 Jun

Hi!! Hope you are all well and having a great weekend!! Over here we are having great weather, I wasn’t well to enjoy it so much, but finally we got it together and got to sit outside with my daughter, a book and our car stereo blasting the Legally Blonde Musical sound track (the musical theater one!) Then I had a draw back after the pain management clinic made me go back to….talk about EXACTLY what we had talked about in the assessment (the second one actually) for which they have made me wait for 6+ months…. and I was so upset to have wasted all that energy and time for nothing (spent the whole afternoon in the clinic) that I have been falling asleep sitting up since then… which means I am a little bit late (as usual ) so I am trying to make it brief (as usual, which means I may not be able to LOL) Here are some absolutely awesome, amazingly gorgeous pages to inspire you!

Every time I come across Dalis pages my heart fills with love, my face has it’s jaw drop and I’m in awe of each and every bit of the whole thing….my problem today (and every time!) is which one of her awesomely awesome pages to share with you, as she has her gallery shinning with beauties. I was more than amazed with a page she made called Insta Love, so I would love it if you click HERE to have a look at it, and I will also now show you this page from her called Serenity, which I think is a star page to start this post…with all her talent combined, the shinning perfection of the photography with the blending and the brilliant use of word art and fantastic construction of her corner cluster that binds the whole concept with (yeah, I repeat myself, I know) total perfection. A star stand out!

Designers who scrap, and in this case even more so, designers who scrap often , result in us loving their creations even more. I know my love keeps growing for them, and every page these particularly talented ladies make has my love, admiration and fascination for how much I learn with her pages too growing. The first one I found, Parenting by Lynne Marie, is especially touching for me as I am just now coming out of a very, extremely difficult time of parenting, so the quote feels so truthful and  almost hurts, but also like her statement in this fabulous page, I, too, go back and do it all again.the background paper was already stunning plain as it came, and then her blending work and her total master of color and the word art put together….another super star that stood out in the gallery with all the heart in it. As I said, constant growing love!

The next awesome designer who scraps prolifically and makes our heart beat faster and, once again, stare in awe at her creations. The make us love every bit of the page  and be amazed with the possibilities their creations can bring us, open a world to any style of scrapping, as is the case of   Dawn Inskip with this beautiful piece called Mistake. Another stunning photo-less page, one that combines the perfection and beauty of the composition, the gorgeous shadows, the touch of fun and even cuteness with the beautiful from the heart expression of the difficulties we all confront in our lives, the amazing feeling of acceptance that makes this page a total stand out, all put together with awesome choices and a mixture of textures plus stunning shadows….as I said, I could be here forever with me talking about it, here it is:

As if my heart wasn’t already racing by the beauty, soul and perfection of the two pages above, I would need a whole post to express how much my heart fills with love, beauty and admiration for this awesome lady who not only is a brilliant artist, a scrapper of the finest class there is, but also shares her talent for the composition  with us through her designs. There is much more I could say but, once again, we will be here ’till the cows come home LOL, so I will try make this short. The page is called Wild Spirit and the author is gonewithethewind, Cheryl, whom you may best know as Fiddle Dee Dee Designs. Her talent shines all over the page: the perfection of multiple action photos, the awesomeness of the crops, the fabulous ability to layer and translate the feeling with color and elements, the more than amazing, absolutely perfection of the shadows, every detail here is more than perfect, and, once again, as if this wasn’t enough to have us all in awe, she shares her talents for free as we can see her scrap her LO on a video (a free master class, if you ask me!) Oh I could keep going, my heart is filled with joy!

Talking about the impressive talent of combining multiple photos, I found this super cute, amazingly gorgeous page, Logan May 2017 by daedesigns and my heart is melting with it! The perfection of the fun way in which all the photos are fitted, the delightful addition of a few elements here and there perfectly located, plus a round up of the whole thing with quiet a lot of journaling and super well fitted is amazing, plus who wouldn’t be overwhelmed by the super beautiful cute face of this gorgeous baby? Awesome page!!!

Another stunning page I found is the gorgeous Snuffle by bbymk5, whose gallery is full of gems and this one brought some memories of my own childhood (even though the one toy of mine that survived was a doll, for some reason I never had bears, at least not that I remember) The beauty of the almost simplicity, the perfection of the blending over a big element, the watercolor background and to make us even happier, an amazing piece of journaling that makes the whole page come alive with sweetness of the childhood has me wanting to share the page with the world…. absolute beauty and soul come shining through!

Another stunning page going for the blank space gorgeousness, with a superbly fabulous take on a template, gorgeous choices, perfection of color combination is Awesome Dad by weaselwatchr, the gorgeous texture of the wood background with the wonderful combination of papers used for the shapes, a super beautiful photo of an awesome dad (which I can vouch for 100% as we met them in person last year! they are both awesome!!!) the shadows that are beyond perfection and the added line/tittle all together makes the whole page really stand out in the gallery!!!

Also on the impeccable gift of the blank space scrapping that combines elegance with gorgeousness of choices, perfection of shadowing and amazing feeling of awe overall is this super awesome page, Space Expo by biancka. Love the sticker like elements that she coordinated so perfectly in this template take, the perfection (once again) of her shadows makes me want to reach and grab, and then the super cute photo in black and white to fill a perfect spot, this is so amazing!!!! Funnily enough, I was watching on Netflix a documentary about Space Camp,  so this on a close up makes me love it even more!!!! Absolute gorgeousness!!!

Now this page, Bingo Challenge #12 Stamped Alphabets by KingsQueen82 really, really stood out and with so many good reasons!!! Love photo-less pages and the ones that use words art of alphas mixed to express, put out a message are my favorites, this one is most certainly done to perfection. Love the amount of alphas she used, the awesome combination of textures, the delicate composition in the sides that is very noticeable but still doesn’t take over the main core of the page, everything works so beautifully here, and with a quote so amazing, so amazingly expressed!!!! I’m in love with this!!!

Another stunning, super stand out is Patience by bbe. The gorgeous big photo not only has an amazing treatment, but is also blended into the puzzle pieces with such perfection, as a matter of fact, there is a lot of crazy blending all over the page that makes me want to stay longer and longer to discover each and every little detail…the page has it all: beauty, great composition, gorgeous elements choices and even the journaling (wise one to follow) all perfectly put together!!!!

Another superb blending master class here with 1920’s The Finger Wave by Iowan. I know Carol does not need introduction if you are a regular visitor here, every page of hers opens a world of possibilities and in my case, the “OMG this is so so amazing I wish I thought of that!” exclamation. Being one of my very top 10 faves, she always, always delights my heart and makes me want to learn the “how to” to every little bit of her compositions, and this one is kind of a master class : perfect blending, amazing clustering, gorgeous shadows and a wonderful piece of journaling to transport you to ones the most amazing times…. my heart is singing now!!!!

Last but not least, an explosion of color, beautiful multiple photo combining, absolute perfection on filling in the page, is this gem from GraceLee, Fun Fair. Love how many layers the template she used has, and how perfectly beautiful her translation of it is! Love the gorgeous Ferris wheel from the kit, I’m in love with her little clusters, a gorgeous one in the top left that balances marvelously with the tittle work in the bottom, the card next to the journaling , everything is delightfully awesome!!!! Now I want to scrap a funfair!!!!

This is all from me today, hope you enjoyed these as much as I do!!! Remember you can get to the original galleries by clicking in the name of the LO and artist, we all know how a word of encouraging  vibe can do to our day!!!! Congrats to all of you awesome creative ladies, and have a wonderful weekend you all!!!!!
