Well, it’s been a very warm few days at our house. The air conditioner went out and it’s not pretty in Florida in August without air conditioning! We have a new central unit being installed on Friday and bought a window unit to keep us cool at night until then. Whew! So after a long day of running errands and installing the window unit, I now get to sit in a comfortably cooled room and browse the galleries. Awesome!
The Beach by Anita is a gorgeous page reminiscent of a vintage painting. Love the sketch effect and the subtle addition of color. The text, birds and additional “grunge” add a beautiful texture and depth to the page.
As a dog lover, I am always drawn to pages with dogs and Fearless by MaggieMae is a beautiful one! This page is a brilliant example of use of white space. The cluster of brushes, word strips, and elements below and above the photo are just the right touch. Love the placement of the date and how the three buttons create a visual triangle keeping your focus on that awesome photo.
Do More Of What You Like by marijke is a stunning page. There have been many gorgeous pages in the gallery using this template but this one drew my attention because of the use of color and texture. Using a lighter color background within the frames creates a beautiful contrast. I also love the OOB – it’s subtle but effective! Love, love, love this page!
# Selfies by Dawn Inskip is one of those pages that makes you smile when you see it in the gallery. She has created a beautiful background for those amazing photos. And that cluster is beautiful and cute at the same time. I love the overall look of the page but my absolute favorite part of it is the journaling with the stitches. Fun, fun, fun page!
Sliding Home by mrsashbaugh brings back from softball and baseball memories. I LOVE how she’s used a large photo as the background for her page. The series of photos is blended beautifully to create the “sliding home” image. The little touches of the baseball stitches, the banner flags, and the journaling all work perfectly with the rest of the page. Awesome page!
Crazy… by jennyjennyjenny is a beautifully blended page. The three clusters surrounding the vintage automobile, as well as the out-of-bounds effect, are beautifully done. Love the the words in different styles that are included in the clusters. Beautiful page with so much to discover!
