Rain, thunder, hail and then snow…we’ve had it all today! It’s called spring in the midwest. The best part of today was that I stayed inside and went gallery hopping and enjoyed finding Gallery Standouts to share with you now. Without further ado, here are today’s picks.

Finding a way to combine digital art with real paper…we call that hybrid. I am a big fan of LizJ and lately, she has been creating the most beautiful hybrid cards. I adore this one she made for her mother-in-law. I think she will be delighted to open it up and to receive a gorgeous spring bouquet. I love the colors and all of the watercolor flowers and foliage. The font she used is also beautiful. What a wonderful way to make your own cards!

This next layout really jumped out at me. I think anytime someone uses a full-page photo along with supporting photos, it has great visual impact. The large focal photo here really tells a story all on its own. But then the smaller action shots complete it. I love how she created a partial diamond frame for the smaller ones, mimicking the baseball diamond where they were taken. The red, white and blue colors and all of the word art are perfect for this awesome baseball page. I guess you could say, she knocked this one out of the ball park! (pun intended)

Speaking of visual impact, take a look at this layout. The first thing I noticed is all of the word art and the variety of lettering, predominantly in black. The bold blue and yellow colors are striking and they make the page truly pop. It has great brush work and textures. Without any actual narrative journaling or photos to tell the story, this layout speaks volumes. There is no doubt in my mind that the artist had a bad day. Haven’t we all?  I love that she could express herself with this stunning art journal page!

I love this sweet Easter layout! The photos are unique, as is the journaling. I really enjoyed how the artist told her story with numbers and how the text is written down the left side of the page. The soft white background is beautifully textured and the brush work really connects the little framed photos. The yellow, green and white colors are gorgeous and the little chicks at the bottom are adorable.

Here’s another sweet Easter layout for today. I adore the storybook quality the artist created with the bunny images and the Easter basket. The blended background and the pastel colors are gorgeous. This page is rich with water color brush work and script brushes, creating wonderful textures. Okay, I’m ready for the Easter Bunny to come now!

Last, but certainly not least, is this stunning layout. It really caught my eye with the photo in the camera viewfinder and then the blurred version behind it, or in front of it, depending on how you look at it. This page really has a lot of visual pop! The message on the little journal card is perfect for the images and it truly contains a powerful message. The brush work is fabulous and I love the pops of red and teal! Awesome, awesome, awesome!
