Finger Pointing-November 13th

13 Nov

Hello Everyone! Hope your Monday has been a pleasant one. We woke up to some frozen fog this morning, so I decided it would be a good day to stay in and work on some crafting projects. After that, I enjoyed browsing through a lot of digital galleries and found these goodies to share with  you. Let’s get started.

Winter’s Light by Heather Prins

This is such a beautiful winter page! I almost feel like I am walking right alongside her. The sunlight really is striking and brings the focal photo to life. There’s a great balance with the smaller supporting photos on the right side of the page. I love the simple accents of nature (the leaves, the branches, the pinecone and the snowflakes) and also the pops of purple. The word art over the bottom framed photo is perfect and so is the blending.

seven days by Maruma

Fantastic example of a grid layout with only black and white photos! I have seen a lot of people posting this type of challenge on Facebook; one photo a day for seven days, black & white only, no people, no explanations.  It’s so interesting to see what people photograph and to wonder what the stories are behind them. The big title and journaling placed vertically on one side of the page are really striking along with the chevrons. Great idea to document her seven days of photos all on one page!

Wonderful artsy page full of eye candy! I love all the brush work and stamping on the kraft background and also the the bits of stitching! The paper pieces and elements placed behind the photo remind me of my days as a paper scrapper. Another great visual interest is the patterned paper behind the main page and the top edger. Her shadows are amazing and all of her colors work beautifully together. What a cute little frame too! She offset the photo with a staple and then placed a few more bits and pieces to tie everything together.

What a glorious page! It’s like being in the middle of a beautiful rose garden. Fabulous blending and amazing textures dominate the entire layout. The petals in the bottom right-hand corner really pop and look like your could just pick them up off the page. Brilliant colors, brilliant roses, brilliant artistry!

yes this! by KPertiet

Wow! Love this fabulous page by the very talented Katie Pertiet! Not many people could pull off a layout that is made almost entirely with word art, but she did it in such a stellar fashion. Great mix of fonts and brush work, mostly in black but with pops of pink as well. Her photos provide splashes of bright colors and the striped wall just adds to the eclectic mix found throughout. Wow!


My final pick is the darling, whimsical art journal page. Those colorful ladies are wonderful and I love the bike with the cupcake in the basket. Love all the fabulous brush work on the background and the paint splats too. Cute little word snippets and the circular stitching not only mimics the bicycle wheels but ties everything together beautifully. I bet these two would be fun to hang out sometime!

I hope you enjoyed today’s gallery standouts and feel inspired to scrap a few layouts of your own. You have all week! :) These artists always welcome praise so please click on any of the title links to go directly to their galleries. Have a wonderful week!
