Hello and happy Saturday! There were so many wonderful pages recently in the galleries, so it was a joy to look for today’s picks. I seemed drawn today to shapes and lines, and I think you will agree that each of these picks is a standout.

This is Liz J., and these are my picks.

This was the first page I saw today on my pass through the galleries, and I knew right away it had to be mentioned in today’s standouts! Love the photo perspective, the stack of monotone black and white papers, the doodly bits of word art, and the vertical line of journaling. The scattering of flowers and buttons combine nicely with the journaling to lead us down the page. The mixed upper-lower case title is adorable. All around a very pleasing start to this post!

I liked this page because of the great use of the sides of the page. The stripey paper blended into the masks really pops against the dark background. I enjoyed the fun use of elements, like the clip holding the photo, and the flower and string embellishing the word art. The word art is what initially drew me into this page, it’s a sweet handwritten snippet that speaks loudly.

Don’t you just love a good doodly page?! Those swirly doodles really grabbed my attention. That impish face appears to have earned the title of this page, which made me smile twice, at the title and the child. I like the doodly stitching bordering the page, and the nearly-real looking embellishments like the wire heart arrow and ribbon. The drawn fronds and feathers behind the photo made a nice base for the photo.

The vertical lines repeated on this page are quite appealing. From the wood grain in the background, to the paper strips and scalloped border, each layer is deliberate and effective in leading us to the journaling. I like the skewed framing of the photo, the real-life quality to the vacation story. In particular I like the embellishments falling off the top and bottom borders of the page. That circle of pretty paper rimmed in red worked well to combine the vertical and horizontal lines on the page and the title.

I enlisted an online translator so I could understand the title of this page, which I believe translates to “We two.” Which, of course, makes total sense when you look at the sweet photo and the people graphic nearby. I love the combination of elements on this page, great use of repeat circles, and that clever cut out bit on both sides. The addition of the stamped butterfly is a nice touch. Great word art and a wonderful mix of patterns on this page! Loved it.

The Open Road by OKate

I admit to being a bit shape-challenged as a scrapper, so I love to see shapes used well. Kate’s use of this template is just fabulous, and it actually makes me want to try out some triangles on a page! Love the use of like-colored patterns to fill the shapes in a mostly but not exactly repeated way that totally appealed. The photo is very evocative, with great photo treatment and blending of text and pattern right into the photo. Great quote, great page.
