Hello everyone! I’m sitting here with a “Cherry Bakewell” flavoured Green Tea enjoying the sun shining in through the window, with one of our cats curled up beside me on the sofa! It is so relaxing, and the perfect time for me to browse through the galleries and shine a light on some gorgeous and creative pages! Trying to narrow down my selections to just 6 is the hard part! There is so much scrapping talent out there! I wish I could feature more, but alas, 6 it is! Let me get to it and show you my picks for today! xx
Make your Wish Become True by MrsPeel
Maybe you know this, maybe you don’t, So I’ll share just in case! This amazingly talented, deeply caring, huggable and loveable, chatty, crazy (in the nicest possible way) woman, has a very special place in my heart! We met online through scrapbooking many years ago and have also had the pleasure of hugging each other in person many times too! This may make me a little biased, but I’m posting this page anyway! LOL – Not only is her beautiful (both inside and out) daughter the feature of the page, but so is Cynthia’s incredible talent for art & design! The blending, the feel of watercolour paints & the large quote on her page is all just stunning. If you visit any of Cynthia’s galleries you will come across a spectrum of impressive pages! xx
This art journal style page captured my attention in the gallery with its bright and cheerful summery colours! Upon closer inspection there is so much to find that screams creativity! The wonderful texture of the paint, the stamped alpha and inked script, the strips of word art and the magnificent bird taking centre stage! The pops of pink amongst the lime yellow and orange! It all blends so well together and creates an artful masterpiece! This would look amazing printed onto a canvas or framed and displayed, it would also be fab used as a design for a greeting card! Who wouldn’t love to receive this beauty in the mail! xx
If Only We lived Closer by Dalis
Another page that just popped for me in the gallery! The wonderful touches of orange and green on a neutral background and paired with the large Kraft paper alpha title work really caught my eye. I love the ink splatters and starburst stamps too, they add that extra little something to the page. Then you spot the other little details like the flower pinning down a bow and another pinning down some string. All these little details make admiring this page so enjoyable, it is like a treasure hunt! The subject matter is wonderful also, 2 little boys smiling after enjoying some frozen yogurt! I’m jealous, that sounds delicious on this sunny day in the UK. xx
Being Me and Being Happy by jaye
I always love to share with you a pocket style page, I love creating them and love to admire them twice as much! This one is a fabulous example of how pocket scrapping can be created in any style! Normally when thinking of pocket pages, your mind may imagine clean lines, simple patterned papers, clean and bold or minimalistic journal cards etc. This page by Jaye showcases a grungier look, a artfully messy, inspiring and dynamic take on a pocket page! I *heart* the stitching! Then look around and you find fabulous painted papers, stamp work, doyleys and what looks to be transfers and worn papers! The B&W photos really shine amongst the beautiful array of colours and textures too! The title of the page sings too, and this page made me “Happy”! xx
Hybrid! I love to see pages created outside of the computer screen, they are so inspiring and I find myself wishing to be so daring! No undo button once that paper has been cut/cropped! Eeeek! You have to be brave! This hooked me in the gallery because not only do you see this wonderfully creative page all layered up and pieced together, you also get a glimpse of the process! How fabulous is that! The tape, the glue, the string, the buttons and tag! Which parts have been printed directly onto the background and the pieces that have been cropped and cut to arrange on the page! This is marvellous and such a great way to showcase all the hard work that went into the finished project, which is a splendid and a wonderful demonstration of a male styled page! xx
I think the sunny and warmer weather we have finally been having in the UK has had my eyes seeking out pages to match! I was drawn to this gorgeous layered and clustered page that screams summer! Here we have the blues of the ocean and the bright yellow of the sun, mixed with lush greens and featuring a nautical theme that makes you want to visit the beach! An adorable photo, that is calm and serene really is stunning on this page! I love the stamp work and the choice of bold patterns, along with the fab layering and clusters of flowers. The pop of red in the title work, small flowers and string bow is a great eye catching touch too! xx
Well that’s my selection of picks for you today, I hope you find them as beautiful and inspiring as I do! If you could spare a few moments to leave these talented people some love in the galleries, it would be appreciated! You can visit each page by clicking on its linked title. Hope everyone has a fabulous week! I’m off to hang some washing on the line then sit and read in the shade with a tall cool glass of lemonade xx
