Finger Pointing – January 15

15 Jan

As some of the other bloggers have mentioned the break was nice but it’s wonderful to be back browsing the galleries. I spied so many gorgeous projects and I’ll show you just a few here.

I thought I would be over Christmas by now but when I saw With My Cow by myla I knew I needed to showcase it here. The photo is adorable and perfectly extracted. I like the way the page is divided into quarters, each with a distinct paper or paint. The word banner brings the top half together as do the hanging lights. I like the pops of red combined with the overall white background.

Bryce by beehive50 is such a beautiful, clean and simple page. I like that everything is placed horizontally in the center with just the vertical paint spatter added behind. I like the way the artist kept the title letters large in size balancing the photo just right. The photo wrap and wood leaves are small, added details that complete the design perfectly.

Here’s a second clean and simple layout, A Marvellous Story of Time By meprout, with an entirely different look, achieved by using a black background paper. The background really makes the design elements pop. The placement of the elements diagonally leads the eye across the page. The photo is darling and the simple white border really sets it off. The silver in the leaves, bow and glitter combines so well with the green and black. The bit of silver text adds to the background without distracting.

I like the blocked design in Firewood and Frost by MargelZ.  The delicate pattern of the background is just right for the blocks and paper strips. The journaling is an enjoyable read. I like the way she placed the elements around the page. The gold in the leaves and stars as well as the single pink flower really catch the eye. Her shadowing is realistic without being overly dramatic.

I’m not certain where to start so I’ll begin with I would love the craft space in My Studio by CristinaC. The photos show amazing perspective and really lead the observer into the studio. I like the way the paint and brush support the theme as do all the added word bits. Keeping the title letters large and placing them front and center leaves no doubt as to the subject of the layout. Her journaling is another interesting read.

My final pick is a paper layout, Heart by JustMel. I really like the way she captured all her daughter’s favorites with a single captivating photo. The arrows and typed descriptions atop the photo are perfectly placed as is the page title. Adding the journal cards opposite, one decorative and one for the story, complete the project in just the right way. This inspires me to pull out my stash of paper supplies.

My post is now complete. I hope you will take a minute or two to click through the links or the photos and leave these well deserving artists some love. Thanks and have a great week.
