Fingerpointing ~ June 5, 2023

Hello everyone out there in Digi-land!!!  I hope this post finds you happy and full of mojo to make some beautiful pages!!! June is such a crazy month with graduations, end of school, and change of seasons that I know can make us frazzled. Take a few moments for yourself and come enjoy a few pages I have found in the galleries tonight!

Echoes of the Past ~ Mother Bear

Lately, I have really been drawn to vintage things, and this layout just jumped out at me when I saw that beautiful photo! I wanted to dive deeper and see what she was all about!!! She’s still a mystery woman, but I love the way Julie put all the fun ephemera in the envelope, and all the wonderful vintage-y elements like keys, lace, and the beautiful music notes paper! I love the tiny little sewn-down ribbon and flowers at the top!

Little Wartime Library ~ Kimberly27

I was drawn to the text background and the title of the page. I see that it’s a book and I really want to get that book and read it! I love the blended books in the background and the wonderful cluster of flowers and the arrow!

Colour Challenge (BLUE) ~ Poppy

This page combines my love of vintage (Audrey Hepburn is a QUEEN!!!!!!!) and my love of art journaling! The title is perfect and just that one blended eye is so striking, and the textural interest the blended text adds to the page! I love the way the drawing of Audrey is made of many papers and elements!

Younger Days ~ FlowersGal

When I saw this photo, I had to click in and see what this was all about!! Such a wonderful photo and I wonder what those young girls accomplished in their lives! I really like all the blended gesso and the sweet hearts around the page.

Be Brave Collage ~ OKate

I think I have a theme here in this post: Vintage clustery art journaling pages!!! This one is just so cool!! I love doing collage with real paper and elements, and this one looks so good that I wondered if it was paper at first! Her shadowing is superb and the paper/element pile is so realistic looking!  I love the blending in the background and, you know me by now… BUTTERFLIES!!!

Sunshine ~ marijke

Here I am again going for the vintage!!!  I just love how she matched the yellow of this fabulous kit to the bathing suits of the ladies! The pile of star fish and the sweet flowers make for a really fun artsy cluster. The quote is perfect and putting the shutters behind them is a perfect touch!

Well, we are at the end of our visit here! I hope you enjoyed seeing these pages as much as I did sharing them with you!



Finger Pointing | June 4th

There is magic in the galleries this fine Sunday.  And our very own bloggers as well as digital designers are ROCKING the galleries!

Beautiful Evening by Aimee Harrison

I was drawn into the twilight colors of designer Aimee Harrison’s very beautiful evening layout.  I enjoy the big photo design which blends so well with the nature inspired elements.  Wouldn’t that be a fabulous place to visit and sit by the water?

Forest by Jayne

Woods and forest are some my favorite places to be.  So naturally I wanted to take a closer look at Jaye’s lady of the woods.  I thoroughly enjoy the painted scene and blending as well as the flowers and bugs!  There is so much here to see, just the like forest.

June Music Challenge by Cheryl

Cheryl is one of our bloggers.  Congratulations to her grandson! And what a great take on a lyrics challenge!  This layout is incredibly bold and stands out with the blue and gold colors.  What fabulous extractions too!

Vitamin Sea by IntenseMagic

IntenseMagic is one of our bloggers.  But I could not pass up her gorgeous layout!  That beach scene and the water are divine!  The colors are incredibly cool and inviting.  And the textures in the layout are extra yummy!

Your Wings Were Ready But My Heart Was Not by Ga_L

The photographs are perfection.  The colors are soft and beautiful.  And this layout is incredibly heartfelt and touching.

New Baby Nephew by Ninigoesdigi

I am drawn to circles.  And I adore how designer Ninigoesdigi mixed the circles with stripes….and that absolutely adorable photo her baby nephew.  The white space here is perfect and the use of paint splatters adds such wonderful visual interest.

I hope you enjoy my eclectic picks as much as I have, lol!  From super arty to a pocket page, I am always inspired by others’ creativity and talent.  Until next time, happy creating and crafting!

Finger Pointing – June 3rd

Hi everyone!

Sorry I am super late today, I have to confess I was busy having a fun day and time ran away with me, as I was having all the fun!

Lynnette – New Car Love

That smile! I know that smile, the one where life is sweet and you just got a new car. Such a happy photo. And I love the way that Lynnette has ensured that the elements used just to enhance the photo, not mask it. I am a big fan of the cloud-like font for ‘new car’ such a perfect detail. I name everything too, so the fact that Zach’s car has a name too made me SO happy – my car is a He and his name is Benny.

Tativero – Big Girls Don’t Cry

This is so powerful. The colours are so strong and that broken/torn photo is just perfect with the word strips. I love the cluster, with tears in it, so moving. And finally her shadows are amazing.

*sylvia* – Salty Air

Sylvia is the queen of elegance for me. This is just so simple and elegant and 100% stunning! Love the bold striped paper, making the blues in the photo pop. And her selection of the perfect elements to ‘frame’ her photo.

Kythe – 52 Inspirations

I was blown away the minute I saw this! It’s gorgeous and I love that it feels like it has several layers, her blending is so so good. The gesso overlay is just perfection, a great way to add in some texture.

Caapmun – Early Morning

I love everything about this. The amazing photo and the treatment and blending to just make it even more amazing! The scattered paint nestled hearts are wonderful and if that wasn’t enough the scripty title is so right for this page, every detail is perfection.

Romajo – Into the Unknown

Another layout using a bold background paper and I am totally into it! I love the large clusters framing the photos, so full and I am a sucker for twine! I love the colour palette too it feels really fresh.

That’s all from me, I hope you will leave these talented scrappers some love and are inspired to create. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Finger Pointing – May 31st

Last weekend I had to create more space on my bookshelf for my 2022 photobooks that I’d had printed with all the pages I’d created last year. Apart from the fact the books weigh a ton, I considered the amount of money I’ve spent over the years getting my artwork printed. Yes, it runs to a pretty penny but truthfully, the memories and stories between the hard back covers are absolutely priceless and I know when I’m no longer around, my kids won’t be interested in trawling through my (by then hopefully way outdated) laptop to see my work but they will enjoy flicking through my books from time to time. All that to say, I hope you print your art in whatever format that works for you!

So let’s see what attracted my attention in the galleries today!

A page with extra pop is Do What You Love by Miki. The framed images are so striking against the blended backdrop that you can’t help stopping for a closer look. Nicely embellished with just a few elements, this is a terrific masculine page!

Summer has arrived with Amy L’s page entitled Nothing Better. The rainbow of colour here is so playful while the mix of florals and framing add to the fun element of this page. Delightful!

[Wedding] by pkfotografie is a wonderful piece of art. I love the unusual colour palette and the mixed media that gives the page its dreamy, textured look. Beautiful!

Monochromatic pages always catch my eye and So Beautiful by terryb is a fine example. Beautiful blending adds texture and interest to a page that could easily be a magazine ad! Very nicely done!

The Hike by Blackkathy has been created using a host of chunky layers that add lots of beautiful depth to her page. Lovely lilac tones accentuate the image while the florals add a gorgeous, feminine touch. So pretty!

Another page that oozes Summer is Hello June by chunlin. I love the design of this page, the trio of images that blend horizontally and the rich, warm colours that really bring this page to life. Really love this one!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my picks for today. When you get a moment, please click on the links above and leave a comment or two for the artists, I know they’ll appreciate it. Till next time, take care and happy scrapping!


Finger Pointing – May 30th

Happy May 30th scrappers!  Cheryl here and can you even believe that it’s the last day of May?  Time goes so fast and the beautiful thing about being memory keepers, as scrappers, is that we get to capture time and keep these memories alive!  I love looking back at my pages, some of them are very old, and re-living those memories all over again.  Many of us are also expressing our feelings through the wonderful world of Art Journaling, including me.  Let me show you the pages that I’ve chosen for you, and I think I have a pretty good mix of “styles”.

First up is Too Short by scrap-genie.  This Art Journaling page simply and beautifully speaks volumes and has a message that’s very powerful.  The blending on the page is wonderful, too and very symbolic looking.

Deep Purple by Anita is simply beauty in blending.   From the lovely woman’s face to the delicate beadwork and the wonderful flower clustering, this page is pure perfection.

Experience New Places by jana is a perfect example of blending and masking to transform a photograph into a magical scene.  The small elements and the beautiful title work makes this page complete.

Monthly Muse Lakes by Amandac is my next pick.  I love the beautiful big photograph and the journaling is so perfect for the theme of this layout.  The masking of the big photo is also very appealing to the eye, and so is the addition of the messy thread and small elements.

You + Me = Us by Akizo is my next pick.  I love big, bold templates and this page really fits that bill!  This page checks all the boxes for colors, patterned papers, amazing pictures and just plain fun!

I’m closing out today with Write Stories by Chaos Lounge.  I’m kind of a “fill up the page scrapper” so this page literally jumped out at me when I saw it in the gallery.  I love the two pictures of the women, surrounded by all sorts of elements, word art and a journal card.

That’s it for me today and I hope you enjoy the picks that’s I’ve brought you.  If you’d like to leave some love on any of these pages, or just see more information, click on the name of the page and you’ll be taken directly to their gallery page.

Til next time,


Finger Pointing – May 28th

It’s hard to believe that May is wrapping up and we are heading into June. For those of us in the U.S., I hope you’re having an amazing Memorial Day weekend. I, for one, love the extra day to unwind. So far this weekend has been a mix of fun and errands.
