Finger Pointing – May 12th

12 May

Happy Friday! I hope you will be as inspired as I was by the artistry I found in the galleries today. Here are my picks:

Good Day by Mrs. Peel

I saw this page in an email I received today. (I love Friday newsletters with all the new goodies in the shops!) I was immediately inspired, and clicked on the image to see a larger view. To my surprise, it was by one of my fellow bloggers, Cynthia Taylor. Her page looks like the beginning of a grand adventure. The doodling on the photo is charming and invites you into the adventure. I adore the treatment on her background photo. The faded colors give it the look of a vintage postcard. I want to scrap lift this captivating layout!

Intuition by Wombat146

Oh, the art of blending! The giftedness of this artist is displayed perfectly in her intriguing page, Intuition. The stunning color palette draws you in and it is difficult to pull yourself away from the complexity of the brushwork and blending. I also love the contrast between the block word art and script title. Stunning and magical!

Advice for My Boys by Dpsbdennis

What lucky boys to have a mother who has such loving, thoughtful advice and can give it so creatively! I like how she warped the text to fit it into her awesome tree. The grass, flowers, and butterflies give her page a touch of whimsy. It comes together beautifully, and I hope she hangs it in her sons’ bedroom so they can enjoy it every day.

Walking path by digigrandma

I started digital scrapping in 2009, and this lady was one of my first scrapbooking idols. She takes everyday moments and turns them into enchanting works of art. Walking path is a perfect example of her talent. All her artful touches – the framed butterfly, glitter title, and worn layers – complement the picturesque photo. You can see why she was an inspiration to a newbie (and still is)!

What a Wonderful Day by EllenT

This is a show-stopper! Love the bright summery colors, the repetition of shapes, her bold title, and the diagonal flow. It packs such a powerful punch, and makes me long for beach days. Brilliant!!

Oh wow, what a spirited page! It is such a dynamic composition.  The extraction, pops of yellow, brushwork, and doodles fill the page with vitality. I am in awe of this exhilarating layout – Sigh!!

        I saw your page in The Lilypad email and had to see it larger. When I finally found it, I was delighted to see it was yours. I am definitely going to scrap lift it! You are always an inspiration – Your artistry and your perspective on life.
