Hi everyone! It feels like some time since I have had the pleasure to browse the galleries! We returned from our holiday (vacation) last week, the 10 days we spent in Turkey were marvellous! The weather was reaching 42 degrees some days! WOW! My little lad enjoyed every second, he had a ton of fun in the pool practically every day. We enjoyed a stunning boat trip, where we had great swim stops in the bays around Marmaris. The people of Turkey are lovely, the food was great, we found a fab Turkish restaurant for a lovely and plentiful family meal one evening, before heading to the marina to see the fountain show. I have a ton of memories and photos to scrap, but before I get to doing that, here are my Gallery Standout picks for today!! xx
MPM August Visual Challenge by MelanieB
I often find myself admiring Melanie’s Pocket style Hybrid projects, they really POP in the gallery! I love this one for many reasons, the photos were the first thing to catch my eye, I *heart* the sun flare and vibrant greens showcased in these images! The paint and stamping directly on the photos is a wonderful touch too! I also love the fact Melanie included a screen shot of the weather forecast and the use of the wood feel pocket card. xx
I really love the softness to this page, with the light grey and gentle pops of pink and turquoise, this page really stood out for me! I also *heart* the photo, a capture of everyday life, which is simply wonderful memory keeping of a moment in time to treasure. The layering here is gorgeous, the mix of patterns and shapes so pleasing to the eyes. I also really love the splats of paint, stamping, stitching and quote! xx
Flip Flops (take two challenge) by cfile
Oh my, this page is super fun and it immediately reminded me of my holiday! Not just for the fact I lived in flip flops (my fav type of footwear ever!) for 10 days, but the blues and greens took me back to the wonderful warm sea! The selfie here in this page is gorgeous, and the photo of the matching toe rings are great! I simply LOVE the quote on this page! I also *heart* the borders and edging to the photos and papers & the stamping directly on the photo, blended into the wood! xx
I fell in love first with the large photo making up the background of this gorgeous layout, its something I forget to do enough of in my own projects! Then just look at those super fun and cute family snaps dotting along the page, such wonderful memory keeping! I *heart* the staples pinning down the photos, the added paint here and there, as well as the journaling! Such a clean & simple page, but such a standout in the gallery! Fabulous! xx
Better Together by gonewiththewind
WOW!! I just love the stunning cluster work and layering showcased so beautifully on this page! The colours from the fun selfie photo have been pulled into the page so perfectly! I*heart* the mix of elements here, from the flowers to varied papers, the acrylic number, paint, stamping and glitter, there is so much to find and admire! I also really love the word strips, word arts and quotes scattered around the page! xx
This page made me happy! It just jumped out of the gallery! I love an art journal page! The wonderful use of layering paints, brushes and stamps and blending those together into this piece of art is fantastic! I *heart* all the added elements, like the torn paper, butterfly, metal star and the sticker. The quote is perfect too “Choose Happy” – How can you not, looking at this bright and full of life page! xx
Well those are my 6 picks for today, I hope you enjoyed them, if you wish to leave these pages some “love” just click on the links to take you to the galleries xx Thank you for stopping by the blog today xx
