Finger Pointing-September 6th

6 Sep

Hello everyone! It is a breezy, chilly day here and fall is definitely in the air! I have to admit, I love fall with its crisp days and I’m already looking forward to the leaves changing to their brilliant colors. Tomorrow, I’m going to the apple orchard to make my annual run for apple cider donuts. A tradition not to be missed! I’ve been perusing the digital galleries today and have some fantastic layouts to share with you. This is a great way to find inspiration for your own pages. Ready? Let’s get started.

PUBERTY by Roboliver

This really popped out of the gallery! It was created for a metamorphosis challenge and the butterflies are a beautiful analogy here. Love the pop of the yellow one! It’s also a great example of all things black & white. Love the placement of the photo and the angled paper strips, along with the word snippets.

A New Normal by MaggieMae

Documenting life’s stories is really why we all scrap. This is very true with this page. Unfortunately, this is all smoke from the multitude of wildfires burning in the western United States and Canada. The journaling is spot on. Even though this is a terrible situation, this artist created a beautiful page. Love the smoky brush work and how it depicts the environment. The neutral color palette is perfect for these photos. One blended photo in the background, supported by the smaller framed ones make for a well-balanced composition. I hope this isn’t the new normal for long.

Wow! 40K by zlemon

Great fun & energy with this one! First of all, I love the vertical design against the gradient background! The mix of wordart and fonts is terrific and my eyes keep scrolling down to see more. I adore all the little elements and the brush work as well.

Steam Locomotive by zwyck

Wow, this is fabulous in so many ways! The old steam engine and conductors are wonderful and the photo treatment is amazing. This artist is a master of blending, as you can see here. Lots of textures, watercolors and brush work in a beautiful composition. The distressed title/word art makes this look very authentic to the time.

Nothing’s Going to Change by Janedee

This is another layout that popped out of the gallery. GORGEOUS artistry! Love everything and I keep looking into this scene to see more and it makes me want to walk down this street with those people. The shades of green and blue, the blending and the distressed brush work are outstanding! I love John Lennon’s quote this artist used as her title.

Let’s Stay In by jenn mccabe

My final pick today displays a several of my favorite things to see on a layout; a focal photo framed within two geometric shapes, leading lines and great white space. Love that sweet photo of Jenn’s dogs warming up by the fireplace and her journaling done in all lower case type. She placed just a few small accents and word snippets to complete her page. 


It’s time for me to start dinner.  I hope you got inspired by some of these awesome layouts are ready to scrap some pages of your own. You can only find out more about each one by clicking on the title links. If you do, please take a moment to leave some love for these artists. Have a wonderful rest of your Wednesday. See you back here next week.

***Many thoughts & prayers for all those in the Houston area and those in Florida. This hurricane season is proving to be a monster.
