Hello there! It’s Carrie. It’s a balmy evening with a cool breeze…and I find it so incredibly relaxing after a long, sorta stressful week. Thank you to Mother Nature for this sorta perfect night. And thank you digi scrappers for creating so many beautiful layouts! I did manage to whittle down my long list of lovely pages to just these half a dozen. So…here we go:
This is just magical- such a great combination of primary colors with saturated tones of blue and purples! This page just tells such a great visual story it doesn’t really need a lot of words. I love the unexpected position of the photo in the marvelously layered flower and all the blending. It’s sweet, happy and somehow delicate… and one for the wall…
I love the stitched block composition. It’s got structure, but it’s still loose and care free. I love the contrast of the grey blended flower border with the primary geometric scatter. It’s a playful contrast that adds to the story of the page. I also love the photo treatments! Every time I look at this page, I see something new that I adore, like the doily… it’s such a simple touch, but it gives that extra something.
This is a perfectly executed minimalist page. The texture of the background paper and the photo give it so much interest. The red is such an eye-catcher… and I like that she’s used the tape to ground the design. Well done!
This page just pops with that fresh green! I love that the she’s reversed what one would think of as background paper… and turned into a frame for the composition. The birds pop off the page against that green… I don’t know if it’s a photo treatment or blending or both, but I’m in love. And I appreciate that she’s stapled her photos down so they don’t fly away. 🙂 Notice how she’s used the lines in the photo to position the smaller photo? Awesome.
Such a wonderful use of color and motif to tell the story. The little bits are just buzzing around the photos. I also love the way she’s used the camera lens frame to focus you (pun totally intended) on the focal point. It just adds that extra oomph of dimension and interest to the page. The swooping lines of word art also drive home that motion in her story. Not to mention the photos are amazing… sigh… I love it.
There you have it. Leave these gals some love …and since the cool night air is making me sleepy, I am saying good night… until next time! Have a scrappy evening!
