Hi everyone, Vicky here for another round of Gallery Standouts! I’ve really enjoyed spending some time today curled up in the corner of my sofa, browsing through the galleries. I have quite a busy weekend ahead, so taking some time out to relax during this week is going to be much needed. I am so excited to be visiting Cynthia (MrsPeel) on Saturday! *Happy Dance* It has been a few months since we last saw each other, and I cant wait to give her a big hug this weekend! While I’m counting down the days, let me get on with showing you my choices for today xx
But First Coffee by Miranda Barten
Coffee, ahhhhh yes! On my list of favourite things! What morning is complete without a nice mug of coffee! I am always drawn to pages about this subject matter, the title of the page caught my eye along with the wonderful layering and stacking of papers, journal cards and diverse selection of elements. I *heart* the paint! I’m a real fan of paint, ink and stamps on a page! I also love the pops of colour, the blue, pink, green and orange work so well together here on the neutral background. The shadows are also fabulous xx
WOW just look at the fabulous blended background, how fun is the mix of papers here, the paint and stamps just perfectly showcased! I love the speech bubbles for the journaling and definition of “shenanigans” on this page! With an 8 year old son of my own, I really appreciate how difficult it is to get “nice” photos, however, crazy, funny, goofy and often blurred from movement photos are caught in abundance! They are still worthy of documenting though, just like Amber has here, its a moment in time to treasure and remember. I *heart* the edits to her photos too xx
I have a soft spot for “boy” pages, I’m always on the hunt for inspiration to scrap photos of my little man, this page is just so “boy”! The grungy paint, the tire tracks the pops of colour amongst the navy blue, I *heart* it all! I’m not a great white space scrapper, it is something I struggle to achieve, but I sure do admire those that can pull it off, and I believe Margje has done just that here! Such a cute photo of a boy and his truck too xx
Another thing on my list of favourite things is…… books! I simply LOVE to read! Seeing children find a love of reading is just amazing, the worlds it opens up their imagination to and the joy they find is just heart warming. I love how Joelsgirl not only shares photos here of her boys reading, but also documents what their favourite books are right now in this moment in time, such awesome memory keeping! I love the blocking to the page, the banners and ribbons, the typewriter font is perfect for the theme, and I *heart* the alphabet paper background! xx
The wooden background on this page is what first grabbed my attention in the gallery, then I was drawn in by the wonderful clusters and layers, the fun bright colours too! I *heart* the pine cones and camping elements and also the great group photo! Another page with paint in the background, that really seems to just finish off the page nicely, along with the cluster just to the side of the layout xx
Oh my, those photos are just super FUN! I love the photo booth style pics with the crazy wig and sparkly hat! What wonderful memories of a birthday. I *heart* the watercolour balloons and the stamped numbers which I presume to be the ages of the girls? The layers of banners and the shadows on those are great! The placement of the text and scatters falling down the page really draws your eye around the page perfectly xx
Well that’s my 6 picks for today, please feel free to leave some love on these pages in the gallery if you have time, just click on the link of the title of each page xx
Thank you for stopping by the Gallery Standout blog today, hope you all have a marvellous week, Vicky xx
