It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I can assure you that Mother Nature is in no mood for love. She’s giving us the big chill currently, but I, Carrie, am not too worried because I was able to warm up with all the lovey pages all over digi land today. Let’s jump right into my picks:
Yay, love! This is such a sweet Valentine card. Firstly, it has oodles of pink and and the cutest flamingos framed perfectly. The big, white title outlined in black adds a great pop to the card.
Fifty Shades of Grey by Applechick
Not only is the title eye-catching, topical and funny, but she used the out of bounds technique in a really cool, unexpected way. And the top of the ladder leads your eye into the page. I also love the way she used the brush strokes to emphasize her story… brilliant!
This layout instantly grabbed my attention. The photo is just pure awesomeness, but they way it pops against the blue paper is amazing. The other really stunning thing about this page are all the pattern papers. I *think* that the patterns work because she used a large, tone on tone pattern for the background, and in each layer the pattern gets smaller. It’s definitely one to study and lift.
I love me a great, big photo! This one is wonderful- the depth, the treatment… and with the minimal elements, the photo is the star. Kuddos for using the soft, pink leaning light for a boy photo. It doesn’t feel feminine, it feels like love. The acrylic title, it’s placement and the doodles frame the subject. Less is perfect!
Little Bit of Perfect tags by livelys
Another hybrid project to inspire you. I really an in awe of the space themed tag. It’s so much fun with the mix of fonts and journaling strips. I love the sequins in the stars! I think the elements breaking the borders of the tags take something wonderful into an amazing, whimsical place.
This one of those pages where I can’t tell if it’s hybrid or digi. Whichever it is, it is captivating when it’s paired with the pastel palette. The red border just pulls you right in. I love the bits of graphic washi tape that create a subtle foundation for the page. The garland mimics the shape of the scallops and the torn photo is just darling here. The page just oozes love… and I love that!
Hope you’ve enjoyed my picks and here’s to everyone having a fantastic, love filled weekend! See you next time…
