I’m certain you’ve been waiting for today’s post. It was a busy day for me but the fun really began when I had the opportunity to wander through the galleries and take time to see all your gorgeous creations. It’s Beatrice on the blog today and here are my picks.
I love the page design in Go Run by MelissaMarti. The large photo is the perfect backdrop for the smaller stacked photos. I like the way the large photo is stitched down to the orange paper and the flags in the three corners really pop off the page. I enjoyed reading the journaling and the artist deserves to be proud of her accomplishment.
Top Ten by n33 is a pretty photo-less page. The creased and lightly colored background paper works well with her bulleted journaling and the black really stands out against the soft color of the paper. The sketchy leaf is the perfect accent and placing the title close to the top of the page rounds out the layout design.
I really like the split design in Kayla and Judah by craftytam. The aqua and red papers combine beautifully and the vertical design, complete with a gorgeous flower- filled cluster, compliments the darling photo. I love the contrast of the white accents in the stamp frame, notebook paper edge and the single offset flower.
The artist modified the template to make it her own in 1948 Trip by readstoomuch. I’m always on the hunt for heritage layouts and this one is striking. I love the way she added the extra triangles both at the top of the page and in the top row of what was a hexagon. Splitting the photos across multiple triangles is very effective. Leaving the majority of the triangles white and filling just a few with color creates an intriguing design and the title work, and few embellishments support her theme in just the right way. The curled photo stapled on top is perfectly placed and works so well with the divided triangular photos.
The neutral background in Potted by Tamsin makes the gorgeous photos the focus of the page. I really enjoyed reading the journaling and it makes me want to try this myself. The embellishments are well chosen and placed just right. The paint, gesso, raffia and scribbles add amazing dimension to the page.
I can imagine how surprising it would be to find roses in the snow. Winter Walk by modgee is a beautiful winter page. I love the way both the photo and the frame blend into the background. I like the vertical placement of the elements and the brush work along the edge mimicking branches with the flower and snowflake scatter over the top.
I’ve come to the end of my post and as always I hope you will click through the links and leave these well deserving artists some love.
