Hello!!! Hope everyone is well, enjoying the weekend and ready for some gorgeous inspiration! I had a very intense week on the health side of life, with moving around a lot between clinics and other stuff which is not yet finished as I have still next week to go and decisions and results to wait for, but thing is, I ended up falling asleep last night and I am now writing on Saturday morning. As usual, there was so much to go through and so many pages that so deserve to be featured…I hope that you love these as much as I do!!!!
I’m not sure you all know how this blog works, so I tell you a bit about: we are all here without any kind of pay, we do not get anything material, any goods, no digital or any kind, this is just something that runs on love and effort by all of us. As I have mentioned before, what we do get though, surpasses the highest of material return: the amazing feeling of making someone’s day, to be able to inspire you and the words of gratitude by each and everyone of you who are featured is something I know each and everyone of my colleagues and myself treasure, plus the chance to get around and be inspired ourselves. There is this one person who does so much more than all of us, she organizes shifts, runs things like clockwork and I know we couldn’t be doing this without her. This amazing lady is also one of the most amazing scrappers I have ever met, but she had been without scrapping for, if I am not mistaken, over a year. Her name is Jeanine, and I was so so amazed when I saw her posting this week, her pages are absolute treasures, I would like to share with you one of those, one that is as amazingly gorgeous in the visual way, as is marvelous in the message it carries: Making Art by nachtmol
Carrying on amazing art journal, here is a page by Cath_ I had bookmarked since I saw it posted in the gallery, I knew I wanted to share this and I know there are so many of us around that fight these same fears, and this page reflects something as ugly as agoraphobia is in such a beautiful visual way…this is what I love about art in general and so love in scrapbooking: we have the power to make something traumatic, or a not so happy event into the most beautiful things. I personally take this power to boost my power to fight all ugliness that comes my way. Love the light she gave to herself here, how well blended the whole thing is, and I didn’t even get to read all the credits…but what an impressive amount of stuff, all coming together into this gorgeous piece of art!!!!
I know most of you know we try being as fair as we can on giving people the chance to be featured, plus I have my own ethics code that tells me I should not feature the same people I featured in my past few posts too soon…. but when you come across some of those people…well, that is just inevitable that you would NEED to share their creations again. This is the case here with an awesome page by Anne of Alamo for a mixed media challenge. The visual composition is so beautiful, so full of details to keep finding, so much gorgeous blending going on…and then she chooses an amazing song to go with the feeling, with such a beautiful font and the whole feeling of the page is just first class going into my heart…. so so much talent here. Could not NOT share this!
Summer in so many parts of the world brings so much beach and holiday beauty, it wasn’t an easy task to choose just the one page… but this, Summer Time by Flo06nice, not only gains my heart, but also Sarita’s (my DD), who was insistent (she was having coffee with me) that this was the absolute stand out (she has a degree in art, even though not a scrapper) The photo is so, so amazing, that frozen action perfection, the gorgeous colors and the ability to transport me to there and then, plus the superb clustering work with the text on the circle path that completes the whole movement, the detail of those pieces of ripped paper…. just absolute gorgeousness!!!
I have two admit I thought at first this was a very, very young Elton John… it shows my age, right? LOL. I have a huge, deep love for music/shows/stage pages, and this one is an awesomely composed one! On a closer look I realized the tittle is the name of the singer: Huey by Norma is just so beautifully worked, the photo is amazing (I can never get good photos, not even at my own daughter’s gigs!) and love the way it is partially framed, the amount of details blended in around it is as amazing, plus I maybe on the road of discovery of another favorite band, judging by the text which I assume is a song of his… love the elements clustered on the right hand side, all the details that make this an all together beauty!
Now moving onto the less fuller side of things, onto the people who have this wonderful gift to make us be there and then, amaze and inspire us with the blank space or clean & simple compositions that say it all with that incredible elegance, is Content by LynnG, who is one of my most favorite people of all. She has so much talent, her creativity is such that I had to go back and forth with so many beauties she has posted. Once again, not easy to get just one. I ended up choosing this, love the photos, the light sines into the page with perfection, the blending in the background is seamless and so beautiful, the elements so delicate and amazingly shadowed, each and every little detail are so perfectly put together that I keep seeing it all as a whole, and that gives me that warm sun feeling. I couldn’t read the text but I think the tittle together with the whole page gives us everything we need to know. Just perfect!
Before I leave you for today, I have another amazing page in that line, the one that with so much elegance and clean cut style can make your heart fill with joy. This, Sweet Serendipity by Bao, called my attention from the thumbnail by the beautiful design, the amazingly gorgeous photo and little embellishment, a proper stand out that when I looked closer, gave me that recognition feeling. I love traveling and though not so often done in the past few years, one of my favorites pages to scrap are the airplane photos, and this is a stunning one. Paired with the message, which is something I have experienced many times, in some cases the most ironic being that I have never seen any of the people again, this whole page is perfection. Love the way she slightly titled the photograph, the perfection of the shadowing, the stitched tag, the fonts used…everything comes together with that beautiful message, and I am keeping it at :Stunning.
So, this is all for today from me. As usual, you can get to the original awesome galleries by clicking on the name of the LO and author high-lit above for each of these amazing people. Please take a minute or two to leave them some love, as repetitive as I may sound, we all know how much a word or two can make a person’s day go a long, long way better!!!! Thanks so much for reading, hope you get as inspired as I am! Have a great weekend!!!!
