Monday, Monday…..the last one of this month! Greetings everyone! Jana here with today’s Gallery Standouts!  Here in the U.S. we have Monday night football, Dancing with the Stars and The Voice (my personal fave).  Later this week it will be Halloween and daylight savings will end. Lots going on. So, without further ado, here are my picks. Enjoy!

First up is an amazingly beautiful and creative page by dfwest. I’m a huge fan of her artistry and I think you’ll see why right here. Fall Back showcases the gorgeous fall colors and uses a leaf as a clock. The little birds help to move the clock hands back. How cool is that! I love all the brush work too. Brilliant standout!

FallBack (1)

Scary 2 by lieke2204 is just that…s.c.a.r.y.! It combines some Halloween elements, such as the skeleton and spider web, with an eery background. The full moon slightly lights up the dark night sky. I wonder if the little girl in the photo is scared. Her shadow is remarkable and her jack-o-lantern adds to the  spirit of Halloween. Scary indeed!

Life Is by ptabbert is a delightful art journal page! I love the orange and blue colors-so pretty together! The title is spaced out across the page and every word is a different style, which looks really awesome. All of the painting and brush work is blended beautifully and the little vertical string of hearts is darling. This is a wonderful and whimsical page!

In your nature by margje is such a striking page! I loved it the moment I first saw it. I think the photo treatment is wonderful and what an endearing look shared by those boys. Placing a photo right in the middle of a page doesn’t always work, but it’s absolutely perfect on this one. Besides all of the brush work and layering, the netting really adds some great texture. I’m always inspired by margje and her fabulous artistry! Super page!

New Hope Bridge by Norma-This is just simply gorgeous! I love the colors and all of the layers, especially the brushwork! The impressive bridge is beautiful and leads the eye right into the photo of the lady. In keeping with the title, I wonder where she has been or is going, don’t you? The blending is masterful and the splashes of white are great accents.  A stunning piece!

I just have to add one more Halloween layout today! I couldn’t resist this cute little witch. Bewitched by NellaBean is a super example of how one kit is sometimes all you need to create an awesome layout. I love how she created the background with combinations of papers and a vertical title on the left side. The photo is beautifully matted and framed, with three darling little clusters placed in a perfect visual triangle. Bewitching standout!
