Hello, everyone and happy almost Friday! Katherine here with today’s round of Gallery Standouts! I’ve spent considerable time in the galleries this evening fawning over all the gorgeous art, and now it’s super late and I need to get this thing posted! LOL! I hope you enjoy the Standouts that I’ve chosen to share with you today!
I fell head over heels for the artistry in this first Standout by Marleen titled ballet. Such an outstanding display of creativity. I absolutely adore how the paint flows with the lines in the ballerina, really creates a ton of visual interest. The pops of black scattered here and there, in contrast to the muted tones in the color palette, adds to the overall visual appeal of this gorgeous masterpiece!
The uniqueness in the design in this next beauty titled Ocean by margje really caught my eye when I came across it in the gallery! Absolutely ADORE how it works to continuously bring your eye right back to the focal point, that image with the spectacular sketchy photo edit! The minimalistic approach really works well here as well.
Having tremendous leanings toward monochromatic color palettes, I couldn’t help but stop and pause to spy out this next Standout by Ga_L titled Expand your horizon! Again, the minimalistic approach here works so well to keep your full focus on that super adorable image! The layout artist has done a phenomenal job with the masking and blending, and creating directional flow in the overall design! A true Standout indeed!
Up next I have this lovely traditional styled layout titled honestly by Corrink! Love the vertical design, and all the mix of patterns in the accent strips surrounding that fabulous image! All the black text creates the perfect complement against the softer palette, too!
I am in the process of working two school albums and when I came across this beauty by Iowan@Heart titled Back to School I just couldn’t help myself, I HAD to give it a nod! The design is absolutely spectacular! I LOVE the flow from left to right, and then back! The watercolor/painterly feel works exceptionally well with all the bolder colors in all the little details that the layout artist has included! And that black and white image is set perfectly against all the color that surrounds it! Really adore this!
Rounding out my choices for today is this very striking art journaling artwork titled Lost by Tree City. Aside from how stunning this is, I can’t help but totally identify with the sentiment. With all the hustle and bustle of everyday life and living it can be difficult to find the time to simply lose ourselves in in our own mind; something we all need from time to time, and some of us more than others. ;P
And with that it’s a wrap for me this week! I hope you’ve found inspiration in my choices this week! And for those of you who live in the USA … Happy Fourth of July! Hoping your holiday weekend is FULL of love from family, friends and FUN! Blessings to all of you! XO
