Good morning! Vicky here with my picks for todays Gallery Standouts! Where has the last week gone? It’s great to be back with you all again xx  Here in the UK the weather is playing tricks on us, we go from sunny and very warm days, to grey skies, cooler temperatures and rain, sometimes it changes within the same day!  I’m counting down the days to our family holiday/vacation where we will have 10 days of sunshine and warmth in Turkey! I am excited to experience a Turkish Bath & also enjoy a massage or 2! My little man says he just wants to spend all day, every day, in the pool! This is the 1st year he will be swimming without water aids on holiday, all those swimming lessons have paid off! Well enough about my holiday, its still a few weeks away! I’ll get on with showing you the wonderful pages I found for you today in the galleries xx

 

Happy Fathers Day by mimisgirl

So yesterday was Fathers Day, I hope all the Dads in your life had a great day, and for those that have fathers no longer earth side, that you managed to celebrate the cherished memories of your loved ones xx I just had to feature a “Dad” page today, this was the first one I spotted and I fell in love! The black and white edits along with the colour photos are fabulous! The “Random facts” is such a neat touch, I think my husband would be in awe of this Dad’s hobby of brewing his own beer! How fun! What a great way to document memories, and a time in some ones life! I also  *heart* the colour scheme of blues with grey and orange too, those are colours that always call to me in a male themed kit! xx

Me and Jake by jackieclayton

Oh my, look at all the gorgeous layers right here! The patterns and colours all working so seamlessly together! It takes a real eye for design and an artistic mind to create such a beautiful eye-catching page, that is not too overbearing, with all these patterns, colours, textures and elements! I *heart* the tucked in string, tape and foliage, as well as the little word art snippets! I also love the small line of journaling that tells us everything we need to know about this page! An absolutely gorgeous photo too! The paint and stamping in the background is such a perfect finishing touch, there is so much to admire, praise and find in this incredible page xx

Worlds Greatest by sucali

Awww how cute is this little fella! I admire how sucali has drawn out the blue eyes of this little boy with the blue papers, paint and elements on the page, mixed with a little lime green and yellow, the page really pops in the gallery! Again I *heart* the tucked in elements, and the shadows are fabulous! I love the mixed types of elements, from a  doodled flower to realistic foliage, along with ribbon and metal, this has quite a eclectic mix of details! I’m a huge fan of adding stamping and paint to a page, and the touches of it here is striking. xx

Do The Crazy Thing by ptabbert

WOW! I’m sure you can see how this page drew me in, it stood bold and proud in the gallery, and rightfully so! Its stunning! So eye catching and high spirited! It really is a piece of artwork! I love the pops of red and blue, on a black background, also the rhythmic feel to the floating of the dress, like this should be a cover for an album or a poster for a west end show! I *heart* the message in the statements, reminding us to e a little crazy sometime, go out a seize the day, try our best, don’t be afraid, take that leap of faith! It can speak to us all, in many ways, in many times of our lives! Simply stunning! xx

Melbourne Open House pg16  by esther_a

I simply love how this page so beautifully reflects the subject matter in those stunning photos, see the watercolour paint, and washed paper background! How perfect is that with the photo of the umbrellas and the story behind the day documented! This project is such wonderful memory keeping! I *heart* the clean lines of the photos that are stapled to the page, the blue umbrella with stamped script work layered behind! If you visit Esther’s gallery, you will find a selection of pages from this trip to the city with her camera club. If you scroll down into the credits of each page, you will see each double page in all its glory! The other side showcasing extraordinary photography, in one large photo! Seriously, go look! WOW xx

Good Thorts – Sunbeam – Lovely by purlz76

This page by Agnes (purlz76) caught my eye in the gallery due to all that painty goodness! The colours working so well together. I really *heart* getting messy digitally and scattering around doodles, paint and stamps on a blank canvas! This page is fun, inviting and inspiring! Never be afraid to try this arty style, it can be so therapeutic! The bold stitching, layered papers and small cluster is all so very perfect on this page. The quote really finishes and suits this page so well, and I love the selfie!!  I’ve had the great pleasure of meeting Agnes, face to face, and believe me, sunbeams really do shine from her, she is such a beautiful lady inside and out! xx
