Hi everyone! Here we are on the last Monday of the month…already! I think a lot of people had a chance to scrap some memories over the weekend. The galleries were brimming with beautiful pages. I had company over the weekend, so no scrapping for me. However, I had a chance to this morning and that’s always a great way to start a new week. Let me show you my picks for today.
When the Storm Hits by dotcomkari
I always love a great art journal page and this one is outstanding! The sketches are just wonderful on the blue background and I love how she created four distinct panels on this page. That really helps tell the story and convey the various messages and mood here. Messy scribbles and fun brush work always add to almost any art journal page. The colored word art “RAINBOW” in the title really pops and made me smile. Rainbows always bring joy and hope, don’t you think!
Spring by JenEm
This layout caught my eye when I saw a shadow, rather than a photo. I knew I wanted to take a closer look. What a unique way to illustrate a self portrait! The journaling strips are gently tucked behind the “photo” and contain words of fresh thoughts and hopes for spring, the season of new beginnings. I love the little yellow flowers echoing the yellow daffodils and of course the green title and ribbon flowing down add just the right touches to complete this page.
Love, love, love this by myssp
Gorgeous, gorgeous prom page! I love this photo of the young couple because it clearly is non-posed and simply captures a moment in time. Let’s be honest, most prom photos are posed, which is fine, but I think this is wonderful. This artist gently faded the full-page photo into the striped background paper, which totally compliments the black tux and the red dress. She added a cluster in one corner and sprinkled some little red hearts in two corners. An elegant word art title finished this beautifully.

This is a very striking layout! The blue and white color palette displays such a simple elegance. I love the full-page photo and how it’s blended into the background. This artist created a wonderful sketch effect and the blue birds are a delightful touch. The leading lines across the bottom and along the right edge are excellent features and add to the perspective of this photo. This page makes me want to go on a cruise!
Lunch Date by MamaBee
Love this sunshiny layout! Yellow, green, orange and teal….yummy colors! Looks like someone sure has a cute date for lunch. Love his big smile and the big title at the bottom of the page. The wood veneer chevrons point right to the focal point and the clusters behind the photo and all around the page are so bright and fun! The big partial sun and the the sun print paper really scream happy sunshine!
April Ditty by Traumelfe
I leave you with this gorgeous spring layout! It’s a wow and it really popped out of the gallery. This artist creatively blended the yellow flowers with masks and added stellar brush work. I adore the raindrops; perfect for April showers. Beautiful colors throughout and the title word art has a blending mode that adds to the overall beauty.
That’s a wrap for me this evening. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today’s standouts and got inspired to create some layouts of your own. Feel free to click on the provided links for more details on each page and/or to leave some love for these talented artists.
