Finger Pointing – February 12th

12 Feb

I’ve just spent several hours browsing the galleries and I think I’ve encountered a new record when it comes to the number of gorgeous projects. With Valentine’s Day almost upon us it seems that love is in the air. It’s Beatrice on the blog and here are my picks for today.

I’m Simply Smitten by Cherrygutz

I really like the non-traditional colors used in this layout. The gold and blue are such a pretty combination and the clusters at the edges of the heart are gorgeous. I love that she tucked the pocket into the heart and filled it with flowers too. Of course the photo is adorable.

I Love You by twinsmomflor

I like the split page design and that the photo fills half the page. The partial sketchy photo treatment with just a bit of paint on top is a creative technique. The gesso adds texture. The leafy banner and title work tie the two sides together. The bits of text and glitter finish the page off just right.

Cutie Pie by janedee

The artist has combined a number of different elements in creating her very cohesive layout. The photo is precious and I love the single lifted corner. The bits of paint around the edges of the page work to frame it perfectly. The title work beginning with a brad and ending with a cluster helps to ground the photo. Finally the yellow scribbles, though subtle, add a nice touch to the page.

Our Story by Mielz

My favorite part about this page may just have been the story so I hope you have a minute to read it. The cascade of clipped photos leads the eye down the page. The soft pink border is delightful and the pretty watercolor butterflies and flowers create a superb backdrop. The hearts and title work complete the page flawlessly.

My Love by blackkathy

I’m a big fan of a simple, white space layout which in my opinion is not at all easy to create. I love the horizontal flow of this page. The photo is lovely and the hand-drawn couple the ideal complement to it. The title balances the word strip and brads perfectly. The reds really pop against the soft, beige background.

Happy Hearts Pillow Box by alleycat

I spotted a number of adorable, hybrid projects in the galleries especially for Valentine’s Day. It was difficult to choose but I finally selected this one. If you have a minute or two, this is the perfect time to check out the galleries for these projects, so much cuter than the boxed valentines available at the stores. It’s a great reminder that digital supplies can be used for more than just scrapbook pages. This pillow box is just too cute. The paper she chose was made to show off the adorable cat and mouse. Finally the composition of her photo is very nice.

That’s the end of my post for today. If you have a minute or two I hope you will click through the links and leave these well deserving artists some love. Thanks and have a great week!
