Good evening everyone, I hope you are enjoying the last few hours of your weekend! Well, I can honestly today that today’s post was one of the hardest ones I have ever written, there were SO many layouts I wanted to include, the galleries were overflowing with standouts! I finally managed to narrow down my choices, I hope you enjoy them.

Equal Rights by sbpoet

There is something so very powerful about this page, it stopped me in my tracks whilst I was browsing the galleries. Maybe it’s the unlikely combination of brushwork, art noveau inspired art and contemporary photos that gives it that almost haunting quality. Great diagonal composition top left to bottom right (and echoed again top right to bottom left!) and super use of light around the main figure.

life is good by krizomel

A beautifully crisp and clean page, the colours work perfectly with the photographs and the hexagonal frame is an unexpected, fun little touch!

Slippery Fish by MNPeas

Super journalling here about this song that has been part of MNPeas’ motherhood for a long time now. I love the little pieces of kid’s artwork included in amongst the photos and the waves here, such a lovely little moment of childhood captured and recorded.

This Is Perfection by askings03

Isn’t this beautiful? So pretty, delicate and beautifully balanced – an utterly gorgeous page!

iPhone5 by peaculiar

As someone who has just become a smartphone user I had a little giggle to myself as I read the journalling on this page, all the while nodding along! I love that peaculiar decided to scrap this change in her photography habits and managed to capture more everyday moments as a result of that change. Long live the smartphone camera!

if only by Cassie Jones

This is a really unusual take on the “funny things kids say” type of page, I love how Cassie has presented her journalling and arranged it in the negative space between the beautifully shadowed title and that super silhouette. Perfectly done!
