Finger Pointing – November 9th

9 Nov

There’s nothing more enjoyable than browsing the galleries mid-week looking for standout layouts. It’s Beatrice on the blog today and here are my picks.

One Run by Roboliver

I’m always impressed by extractions, especially one as perfect as this one. Even the hair blowing out behind the runner looks perfect. I really like the flow of the page from left to right and top to bottom. The layout artist combined the word art with the title alphas to create a single quotable phrase. Adding the paint behind the figure lifts her even further from the page. The painted edges frame the layout just right.

I Wish You… by JennyG67

This was one of the first pages I spied in the gallery. I love the paper blocks so artistically combined to create a backdrop for the beautiful photo. I like the way the lace doily barely peeks out from behind and the large floral cluster is a beautiful addition. The scattering of fall leaves mimics the tree in the photo. Similar to the layout above, the artist created her own title by combining the alphabets with the word art. I like the way the added brackets emphasize a part of the phrase.

November by CarolinaScrapper

I’ve been noticing a lot of layouts in the galleries with dark backgrounds. Choosing a dark paper really makes the photos and elements pop. I like the thin strip of paper tucked behind with the splashes of gold paint. The scattering of leaves is very pretty and I like the way some of them are shadowed and others not. Of course the photos are adorable and the sketchy leaves in white in the bottom corner are just right for the page.


Tea Time by caapmun

The masked photo is so pretty. I love the orange tea pot and the way the orange is duplicated in the tea itself. I always think of tea time as relaxing and this photo really sets the mood especially with the tea light in the corner. The scribbles and paints extend the colors in the photo and the tags, stamps and word art complete the page skillfully.

Alone in the City by nobles

I really like the way masking the right hand side of the layout emphasizes the theme and title of the page. The selective framing draws the eye to the lone figure of the girl and the bridge rising before her. No embellishments were needed for this page. It’s art in its own right.

Let’s Kraft by luan37

I’m a big fan of a kraft background. I love the stacked papers behind the delightful photo. The sprinkling of flowers and stars adds to the happy theme of the page and I like the placement of the washi tape at the bottom of the layout. I like the texture of both the torn white paper and kraft cardboard. The painted leaves and flower buds help add to the slight diagonal flow of the page.

As always I’ve come to the end of my post and I hope you have enjoyed today’s pages. If you have a minute or two please click through the layouts and leave these well deserving artists some love!

    Thanks for choosing my layout but because it was a scraplift I feel like I don’t deserve it.

      I saw that it was a lift but picked it anyway. You made it your own and deserve the GSO. Congrats!
