Fingerpointing – September 7th

7 Sep

I haven’t had the opportunity to post for several weeks and I really enjoyed my time browsing the galleries. There are so many amazing projects in a variety of styles I’m constantly inspired and I hope you are too!

I’ll begin with Crisp Fall Day by cutiejo1 which reminds me that fall is coming soon. Her split page design is so creative and her extraction is perfection. The photo from behind is always intriguing and this one leads the eye directly into the page. The circle framing the opposing front-view photo contrasts beautifully and the addition of the leaves and flowers reminds me of a wreath. The other bits sprinkled about add charm and the title-work finishes the layout just right.

The photos in Joy by Nietis are so appealing. Her paper stacking is amazing and the embellishments are tucked into exactly the right spots. The slight tilt to the photos adds interest and the title and journaling in the empty photo spot is a clever touch.

Speaking of photos, check out the black and white photos in Pillow Fight by sam ellis. The shots reflect incredible movement and could really stand on their own. She chose to add just a few embellishments so as not to detract. I especially love the pop of the red heart but my favorite part is the journaling, definitely worth a quick read.

If a photo is worth a thousand words, sometimes none are worth just as many as in Fresh Air by ruthmelody. Her brush work is amazing. I especially like the dark blue in the iris. The addition of the flowers and butterfly perfectly shadowed and placed on top reiterate her theme as does her colorful title-work.

I really like the use of the template in For the Birds by scrap-genie.   She only added papers to a few of the spots and otherwise filled them with brush-work and bits of lace. I like the placement of the stitches, dividing only some of the squares. The journaling is perfectly placed in two opposing squares and the embellishments scattered about support her theme. Finally the stacked photos placed on top remain the focal point in this otherwise busy layout because she kept the page monochromatic.

I found more creative paper stacking in #amazing by dotcomkari. The photo-crops are spot-on and I love the combination of color and black and white. The framed paper squares are a unique touch and I like the tucked in heart frame. The large ampersand is a clever addition and I enjoyed reading the heartfelt journaling.

Mother Nature has been wreaking havoc all across the country whether as fire or water and I’m adding my thoughts and prayers along with many others to all those affected. As always please consider clicking through the links and leaving these well deserving artists some love. Thanks and have a great week.
