Finger Pointing – February 20th

20 Feb

I am so excited to be with you today to share some layouts that I found while looking through the galleries today!!! There are so many fantastic pages it is hard to only select 6!!! So, here are my picks for today. . .

First up is CarpeDiem by HeatherH. The photo treatment caught my eye immediately and I thought the black and white worked so well with the use of those fun colors. The uplifting words just brought the whole page together!!!

The dimension on the next page is incredible. I could almost reach out and touch the flowers on aureli122 by tizote59. The design on this traditional style just drew my eye to the photo.

null

Next up is Behold the Sight by DivaMom96. Again, I was drawn to the photo treatment. This was so colorful and just let the photo shine!!! I am intrigued by the seamless use of the digital components from the wordart to the overlays.

And talking about the use of color, check out Happiness Is by agata68. I just love the strong colors used here. Sometimes I shy away from bold colors, but now I feel inspired!!!

And will you just look at This is What I Love by jennschultz!!! I love the circles here and that center with the skewed cutout was genius!!! The cluster work on the edges was spot on for this design!!!

null

Finally for a sweet fix, I picked pieces-of-my-heart- by nanascrapper. I am loving all the pages I see with the cutouts and I thought the soft tone of this page was perfect for those sweet photos!!!

So these are just a sampling layouts in the galleries!!! I hope you enjoyed today’s picks and find some inspiration for your own projects. Please visit the layouts to take a closer look and leave some love!!!

Until next time. . .

Finger Pointing – February 8th

8 Feb

I am so happy to be able to bring you my Gallery Standout picks for today!!! It is always so much fun to have a cup of coffee and look through the galleries. . .the hardest part is picking just six layouts to feature here!!! But here goes. . .

First up is a layout by mocamom. This color combination is one of my classic favorites and I found the balance between the two colors to be sheer perfection. I also like how the “rays” just draw you in. And those photos are adorable!!!

null

Next is a layout by lauser. This was an interesting combination of styles and I love how she combined the artsy and traditional styles!!! And the use of the graphic elements adds a wonderful sense of movement. Using a black and white photo was also spot-on for this layout!!!

null

The layout by nightshadow just jumped out to me in the gallery!!! Then I started looking closer and the attention to detail is amazing. . .just look at the birds on the arrow and how they are entwined with the stitching!!!

null

The photo crop with the emphasis on the eye on this layout by BrightEyes just drew me in!!! The intensity of center color was stunning and I loved how the depth of color seems to fade to the outer edges.

And who can resist a pet page? They just always make me smile and this one by Sstalter is no exception!!! I love how the soft tone of the page is offset with the darker edging. The cluster work is just amazing and with the blended photo is so sweet.

null

Last, but certainly not least is a magical page by cinderella. Every little girl would be thrilled to have a page like this in their scrapbook!!! I love not only the whimsy but also the fun color combination that she used to create a light-hearted page full of delight!!!

null

Well, that is my list for the day!!! If you see a layout here that you like, please click on the image and leave a comment for the artist who created it, I am sure they would appreciate it!!! And, check back tomorrow and see what other goodies have been found in the galleries!!!

Finger Pointing – January 26th

26 Jan

Hello!!! I am so excited to share some of the incredible pages I found this morning when looking through the galleries!!! I have to admit one of my guilty pleasures is to randomly look through galleries looking at all the gorgeous pages. . .I am always inspired by what I find!!! It was so hard to narrow down the layouts for today but here are my picks!!!

First up is Hogwarts In The Snow by kat. I am drawn to the soft, muted colors that have been used here. And while there is so much to take in, my eye is guided by the chevrons. The text overlay is so subtle and doesn’t overpower the effectiveness of the selected tones.

Heritage pages always have a special place in my heart. Scrappie Irene’s Awesome Memories sets the tone and is the perfect way to showcase a photo from another time. The chosen colors work so well with the photo. Makes me want to know more about the story.

And WOW, *Sylvia*’s Jump is such a fantastic action page!!! Everything about this page is spot-on!!! I love the grungy feel of the page and the overlay on the photo is the perfect touch to not only add grunge but to enhance the sense of movement in the photo!!!

null

It is so hard to believe that we are still in January here. . .yesterday it felt more like spring!!! But Zanthia’s The Magic Of Winter reminded me that there is real beauty to be found on a cold winter’s day. The variety of blues that she has used really speaks to the winter theme. I love the balance of the page and those photos are adorable!!!

null

One of the Christmas presents my girls look forward to each year is their own calendar so I am always drawn to a gorgeous calendar page!!! My Bear has created a super sweet page for April 2018!!! I love all the cute photos and the attention to detail in the clusters is perfect!!! Who wouldn’t love a calendar page like this!!! I love how she has pulled from several sources for her page too!!!

null

Finally, I am in such awe of scrappers who can create an art journal page. I have tried over the years and have never felt very successful. That is why I love Poppy’s Think Outside The Box page. That eye just drew me in!!!

null

And, with that I think I’ll wrap it up for the day. Hope you enjoy the selections and find inspiration for your own projects!!!
