It seems like forever since I wrote a post and I’m chomping at the bit to get back into the swing of things. My time in the galleries has been limited over the last few weeks so it was pure pleasure to spend the last couple of hours leisurely browsing through all the gorgeous pages. My choices today reflect the joy in our world – the joy of a peaceful day at the beach, the joy in accomplishments, the joy that comes with having good friends, and the joy and pride in cheering our team and country to victory.
The use of white space on Beachdays by Mielz creates such a serene feeling. The colors are perfect for the beach theme. I love the use of the dotted lines and the placement of the frame (and the thin frame is perfectly in keeping with the soft look of the page). The watercolor word title is beautiful and beautifully placed. The placement of the date is the perfect finishing touch. Gorgeous, calm and peaceful page!
Come to the beach by AnnePC is another gorgeous beach themed page. I love the look of the spill frame and the reflection is stunning! The background paper works beautifully for blending the photo. And how about those flowers that act like little points of light…gorgeous! And, did I mention, that I really love photos taken from this perspective? A stunning page!
The Sweet Life by yellowpeep makes me smile. That photo is so sweet and takes me back to the days when I loved the monkeybars. The horizontal frame grounds the photo cluster which is beautiful. Love the journaling and the placement of the date. Love this page!
I love the story behind Maruma’s soccer fans page. Nothing like a soccer game to stir up some country pride! Awesome use of the German flag look for the background paper. The brushwork and chevrons create a perfect background for that cute photo. Love the finishing touches of the washi tape cluster and the ribbon/button cluster. The large title is perfect and I love how it actually looks like a paper page with Thicker letters. Cool page!
I love, love, love the messsage of Friends by Miki. The blending and brushwork is amazing and how cute are those waves! The repetition of the word friends in different fonts and colors adds tremendous depth to the page. Whimsical with a message! Love it!
I love everything about 2015-05-10 DaltonGrad Always by scrapfor5. The journaling is amazing and so heart-felt. The embellishments and photo mats all add a realistic look to the page. Awesome page!
This post took a little longer than usual because of a break for dinner and because it’s amazing what you can forget in a few weeks! I hope you enjoy and are inspired by my picks. If so, please check them out in the gallery and leave some love for the artist.
