Finger Pointing – July 30

31 Jul

Hello all! A bit later than anticipated, so lets get right to it ….

I am enough by Dalis

A page with a strong design. Evoking emotion with the arrows and the scribbles, and which is even more reinforced with the teardrop pattern on the background. Well done!

Daily Routine by mrspotts

Love this! Cute how the elements have been used, and I can also see something like this pinned to the fridge but then as a to-do-list or some other roster.

Peace by Lime

Butterflies are so my thing! The red one immediately caught my eye and I really like how it is in contrast with the black one. Both in flight towards the ‘inspired’ cluster.

Cephalopods by Tiff

Fun and interesting topic for a page. The shadow work is quite realistic too… look at the tape! So realistic it all looks to me, it could’ve been a snapshot of a student’s project-in-progress, everything stacked up on a table.

Fearless by nun69

Usually you don’t see much journaling on a page, here it is all filled up. Love the details with the brushes and stitches, and the circle theme that keeps returning in the rings, buttons, sequins and flowers.

London 2013 by joshgirl

Nice focus on the photos by keeping the background plain-ish, but adorned with some simple elements. I especially love how the word “London” is used as a sticker.

 The Very Best Ever by amandascraps

Love the playful and boyish look of this page with the design on top of the page. I also like the accenting with the splatters, it sure can get messy eating ice cream.

The Very Best Ever by amandascraps

 Enjoy the Journey by flohbock

This is just beautiful! From the hot air balloons in the photo, mirroring them with the stamps on the background, to the stacked cluster, and the pop of color of the photo against the neutrals. LOVE!

 Faces by jenmaddocks

I really like the blended and photocopy effect of the photos. Both asking attention, competing and working together at the same time. Stunning page!

Dad’s girl by amandac

I like how the elements are placed against the background, like it has actually been used as a map. Especially the line up of the moons caught my eye. And the photo is the sweetest ever.

Regret by scrapsandsass

The scattered elements, the subtle brushwork, I like the flow of the design, all coming together from different directions to place focus on the journal card. Love the pops of pink too.
