Finger Pointing – November 20th

20 Nov

I’ve just spent several hours wandering through the galleries while waiting for a new dryer to be delivered to my son’s condo. I spied so many gorgeous pages, it’s difficult to know where to begin but I’ve done my best to narrow it down. It’s Beatrice on the blog and here are my picks for today.

I Love Dogs by dvhoward55

I really like this page design with everything placed toward the side of the layout. The photos are precious, especially the one of the toddler hugging (possibly squishing) the pup. I like the crops too! The vertical cascade of photos and embellishments draws the eye down the page. I like the way the artist emphasized one of the photos with the circle string. Rotating the journaling is a neat touch too.

Pumpkin Patch by rubygirl

This is one of the most engaging project life pages I have ever seen. I really like her clean design and the way she incorporated so much white space while showcasing so many photos. Adding the typed and handwritten quotes as well as the journal card were the only embellishments needed to finish off the page.

A Story that Could Have Been by oldbag165

This is such a gorgeous heritage page. The large blended photo makes for the perfect backdrop for the smaller, framed photo. I like the touches of yellow and green both in the cluster atop the photo and the paint behind. What really touched me though, beyond the beauty of the page, was the story behind it. Apparently the layout artist doesn’t have many photos of this friend because she was typically the one behind the camera, using it as her protection. I think this is a reminder to all of us to sometimes step out in front, whether we like it or not.

Beautiful by NBK-Design

This is such a gorgeous art journal page. I love the green and blue palette with just a few touches of black. As with most art journal pages, the majority of the elements are left without shadows so those that are shadowed really pop. I love all the brush-work, especially the doily. The journaling is a good read. If you click through the link to leave some love you may be surprised to learn that this was created on the artist’s IPad using an app, Yes, there’s an app for that (sorry I couldn’t resist). It may not be new to you but it is to me and this is one beautiful page!

Artistic Expressions by LynnZant

I think digital scrapping is the perfect way to preserve a child or student’s artwork rather than saving a pile of papers, though this art is so amazing that may still be desired. I really like how the colorful papers and embellishments show off the mostly black and white artwork. I like the grid design and the title work combining several alphas. The spatters, paint box and brush complete the layout perfectly.

Preparation of Halloween by myla

While many are already moving along toward Christmas, I’m happy to see some fall pages still popping up in the galleries. I like the photo treatment of the large blended photo and the layer of smaller photos on top. Cleaning out the pumpkin guts may not be the most enjoyable part of carving but it is necessary. I like the texture of the white paper and the pop of black on the small piece of polka dot patterned paper. The spider and daisy compliment the page perfectly.


As always, I’ve come to the end of my post and it’s my last one for November. So for those that celebrate Thanksgiving I’d like to wish you a happy holiday. I’ll leave a reminder that if you have a minute or two, please click through the layout links and leave these well deserving artists some love!
