It’s an early post here on the GSO blog for me today, usually I’m a night owl pushing the edge of the clock. I’m guessing my early start has something to do with the tiny ball of fluff curled up at my feet taking his second (and third) nap of the day. I’m spending nap time browsing the digi galleries oohing and aahing at all the pretties posted recently. As a lover of the holiday season, it was fun to see the happy colors with the sparkle and shine from some of the early holiday kits and pages mixed in with scrappers’ everyday stories.
Let’s get started:
It takes bright colors to pop this nicely against a dark background. The tilts to the word art and framed photos implies the hustle and bustle of Times Square, the boldly colored elements echo the flashing lights and neon in the focal photo. Really pretty page!
Another page about New York City, this time with a holiday focus. I LOVE the way she did the title with the outlined alpha and the multiple patterned papers inside. The white and red just pop off of the black background and the gold shimmers and elements give it a very regal feel. Beautifully shadowed, as well.
You just have to stop and read the story on this one when you see it in the gallery! The bone/skeleton element sets the tone but the repeated circle shapes and bright colors add the positive outlook that the journaling talks about. So much movement created on this page with the animal print, the crown and epoxy starburst. I hope your grandma feels better soon, Kimberlee!
I’ve always believed it’s important to scrap about important stories of the day and this was an important part of last week here in the U.S. I like her use of the tiny bits of media imagery in the shape of 2016 along with her element choices.
I love how she added elements on top of her digital page protector, such a fun way to give a pocket page extra dimension. I love the tiny strips of patterned paper, the unexpected crops, the use of multiple photos and how she alternated between color and black & white to support the neutral color palette. Pretty clusters to add extra color and bling to keep the eye moving around the page. LOVE!
The hypodermic was unexpected with the adorable baby photo but I totally got it when I clicked over to read her journaling. Here’s another page using bright colors to pop off of a black background and it’s totally lovely. Nice use of the multiple patterned papers, cute title work and just enough “medical type” elements to support the story but keep the focus on the happy ending.
I hope you’ve found a little bit of inspiration here on the blog today. Hop on over to your favorite digi gallery for a few minutes, soak up some more and leave a comment or three. You’ll make someone’s day!
