Finger Pointing – November 12th

12 Nov

So far, my weekend has been filled with chores, errands and a long overdue gym workout but I’m pleased that I got all that done before I sat down to enjoy a cruise through the galleries as a reward today! Lots of Autumn/Fall pages continue to adorn the galleries along with a smattering of December pages too and I’m sure lots of you are starting to consider how you’re going to document the festive season this year. But before I get totally side tracked, let me share the goodness I found in the galleries today.

So Social by biancka starts off my post today with a bang. I love the vibrancy and energy in this page with the bold colour palette and the numerous photo’s. I like how the images, anchored beautifully with the pretty clusters, have extra pop against the grey matting. The icons that we’re all so familiar with and the printed labels, all of which are dotted about the layout, are the perfect finishing touch. A super cool layout!

The copper tones of sucali’s page entitled Gather are so beautifully rustic for this time of year. I love the bold and striped backdrop, the cut out circular detail, the pretty patterned paper and the fact that the journaler is larger than the sweet photo. A perfect selection of elements and the word art title round off this project beautifully. A lovely, eye catching page!

Moving on to some softer tones is You Me and a Cup of Tea by FILIPPOK. Aside from the lovely colour palette, the design of this layout attracted my attention.  I like how the top and bottom sections balance the page, the large photo on top and all the glorious detail and two smaller images below. Gorgeous shadowing adds great depth here and I love that the two little bears wrapped up in a scarf give the page a playful feel. This is just so, so pretty!

Concentration by marleen is totally wall-worthy. My goodness, this is so beautiful that it takes my breath away. I love how the paint/masking works in perfect contrast to the black areas, how the pencil marks stabilise the image and how the focal point of the entire layout is, quite appropriately, centre stage. Seriously love this!

Staying with the artsy for a moment, Forget Me Not by cocodou is another terrific piece of art. Again, beautiful, soft tones are prominent here and I love the perspective and how all the detail is framed by white space. Most of you know by now that I aspire to create projects like this and this one leaves me longing to physically sit and watch a page like this being created! Absolutely beautiful!

I’m also in awe of those who create calendars. I’ve yet to embark on such a project but this 2018 calendar cover by shelbelle has me seriously contemplating whether I should push the boat out for 2018! I love the large numbers and how they stand out with the clever shadowing but what really makes me want to reach out and touch this layout is the ribbon banner. Wow! How awesome is that?! I like that it’s pinned at each end by the pretty buttons and creates the impression that 2018 is going to be a great year! Fabulous!

That brings me to the end of my post for today. I hope you’ve enjoyed my picks and that they inspire you to scrap some of your own stories. When you have a moment, please click on the links above and leave a comment or two for the artists, I know they’ll appreciate it. Till next time, have a great week and I’ll see you in the galleries!
