It is all hallows eve here in America. I am sitting in the dark, scrapping. My kids are out going from event to event filling pillowcases with calorie laden candy. I am waiting for them to get home, so I can check it before they eat it. YES! I admit it I also make them pay a tax! All Reesee Peanut Butter Cups belong to me! I went to through the galleries today and had great plans of filling this post with ghouls and ghastly pages…but there was more talent and outrageously awesome pages of ALL kinds I couldn’t keep it to one genre!!
Starting off with Anja_77’s page Only for Boys. I love how she took the ribbon and it feels almost like a street! The circles all over to include the frames that shine so spectacularly, and the lights all come together for a top notch page!
RED! I love RED! I am drawn to it like a moth to a flame! This is beyond amazing, I want to print and frame it HUGE on my wall! LOOK at the way cool out of bounds in the round frame! wow, oh wow and add ten more wows. I don’t know what I love more, the composition of the page or the dynamic photographs by Timounette on her in Red page!
I Have a Story to Tell You by Iowan. This has to be a photograph of a page, I just know it…look at the shadows, the depth, I want to look and see if there is glue behind these layers. Her work on this page screams, I had fun MAKING THIS PAGE! Can’t you feel it??
Project Life. I could just type those two words and walk away. You see I am petrified and at the same time mesmerized by those that keep the pages going. I keep trying to pump myself up to do it. I give up, and then…a page like this one makes me want to try it again. The cropped photos, make this page even more stunning. Justagirl (really I am not stalking you, just love your view on life) page Mudgeeraba Show 2014(which I had to google, because the word is just a giggle on my lips! oh oh and how cool are the apps squares? I don’t know for sure what they are called, but I know they do something with a smart phone!
This is something I believe EVERYone should try! Black and White a photo and then plop (although I believe that bao didn’t just plop) a frame and keep the color on the framed cropped part of the photo. Isn’t is marvelous? I think the page Art’ by bao is fascinating, and as one of the commentators said it is clever! Her soft fade on the photo is phenomenal too!
The last page is another fun technique that I forget about, selective color! This photo is hilarious and perfect with the color selection! Quirky by Justme Trace is what scrapping is about to me, taking a photo and when this page is printed and looked at conversation will blossom and laughter of that memory lives again!
oooooooooooooh the candy collecting children are home…and I need to feed on chocolate! Enjoy the picks tonight and laugh when you take pictures, giggle when you scrap them, and
~never lose your joy!
