Finger Pointing – June 19th

19 Jun

It’s Juli back again and I’m hiding out upstairs in our bedroom today while I wait for the air conditioner repair person to come figure out what is wrong with our 1st story air.  It’s way too hot for no air in June in Florida – it’s like a swamp down there.  While I’m waiting, I’m passing the time looking at all the lovely layouts posted over the weekend.  Wow!  There are some mighty talented scrappers out there!  Let’s take a look at my top 5 favorite layouts I’ve come across today.

First up we have Week 24 by DELISAK.  When I saw this layout initially on FB I had to hunt it down in the gallery to learn more.  I just love the idea of having a digital journal with photos and words in such a different format than what I’ve seen before.  I love the balance between the pictures, the journaling and the white space here.  The little details like the stamp edged photos and the tape and shadow on the bottom picture really bring this page to life.  Not to mention the daily journal prompts.  I think this is such a great idea and looks so fabulous.  I’m going to have to try this myself!!!

Next we have this stunning layout by beaute called Sweet Kiss of Spring.   I was drawn in by the way the scrapper took a photo and made it look like it was spilling out of a frame.  As I looked closer I realized that an action was used to make it look like the photo is becoming a painting.  How incredibly cool!  This is so unique and looks amazing!  This is a technique I would love to learn how to do myself!

I next stumbled upon this very thought invoking layout by flowersgal that was made for a Mixed Media challenge.   I immediately felt like I should be standing in an art gallery.  This layout, with its divided sides, shows happiness and sadness.  It’s truly a work of art with the stamped images and the colors that are blended together so beautifully!  I find myself contemplating what the scrapper was thinking and what kind of conclusion they want us to draw from this layout. I think the word art really says it all…this is a deep layout and one I find to be wonderfully created!

Next up we have a really fun and graphic page titled Change by IntenseMagic. What initially drew me in to this layout was the white background with the bright colors.  I really love the bits of word art around the page that echo the change theme – they really get your eye to travel.  The mass of different colored butterflies has such an amazing effect!  Not only do they represent change but they make the page feel grounded as the top seems to fly.  The other little bits of paper, flowers, and buttons are just icing on the cake bringing more color and interest.  This page is so cool!

My final pick is Leave Her Wild by hollyxann.   This black and white photo is so, so amazing! It totally makes the page and brings you in to the theme of leaving this little girl wild.  The addition of the gorgeous colored papers and the flowers only accents this phenomenal photo.  I like the way the scrapper tucked some of the flower under the layers instead of piling them all on top.  Such a bold and exciting page!

These are my top 5 picks for this hot, muggy and cloudy Monday here in Florida.  I hope these layouts brought a little sunshine in to your day and that you’ll go visit and leave these scrappers some much deserved love!  See you soon.

    You made my day too! Maybe I’m getting a little bit of the hang of art journaling… a new avenue of exploration for me.
