Finger Pointing – October 5th

5 Oct

As we march further and further into fall, I can only say “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers!” (L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables)

It’s Beatrice and here are my picks for today.

A Special Place by flowersgal

I really like the flow of this page. The large splash of purple on the background lends a dramatic feel to the page and works perfectly with the gold and violet palette. Adding a photo of the sign is a great touch and can really help in remembering the “where” part of the story.

The Roaring Twenties by MaggieMae

I love the heritage photos in this page. The paper stacking, slightly askew, frames the photos perfectly. I like the variety of stamps in the background and on the edge of the layout. The neutral palette in no way detracts from the photos and the trio of gold buttons finishes things off just right.

The journaling in this layout is so descriptive and colorful I hardly noticed it was without photos. I like the way she used the pages of the old book to hold her text. The clusters are gorgeous and perfectly shadowed. I really like the way the clusters encircle the journaling on three sides.

The Day Before Yesterday by Anny-Libelle

I like the perpendicular lines of this layout. The clusters are so pretty and I like the way she tucked in the ribbon. Placing the journal card toward the back of the photo stack is a creative touch. I love the sketchy bits outlining the edge of the page.

I never met a dog page I didn’t like and this one showcases a darling photo. I really like the whimsical look of the page. Keeping the elements flat lends an artsy look to the layout. I like the curvy word art matching the curvy pencil marks. The spatters of paint and the darling hedgehog complete the layout expertly.

Hazy Days by jessicalynn01

This page is such a pretty fall layout. I like the way the photos are placed close to the edges of the page. The blank space in the middle of the page points outward to the photos and journal card. I love all the differently shaped paper pieces scattered about.

I’ve come to the end of my first post for October. I hope you will take the time to click through the layout links and leave these well deserving artists some praise.
