Hello on this special Oscars Sunday, always an exciting night in Hollywood! Before the awards begin, let me show you some of the stars I found in the galleries today. I think you’ll find them inspirational.

Unique is beautiful by Clin d’oeil

This really popped out at me with that uniquely different photo. You can’t fully understand it until you read the little journal block at the top and then the text lines at the bottom. What a great way to illustrate the title, “Unique is Beautiful.” I love the extraction and the blending. The little doodles and brush work here and there add some whimsy to this delightful page.

What a bright and happy page! The chevron border with the embroidered ribbon grabbed my attention right away. It is complimented by the black and white striped border on the left edge. I love all of the circles and brush work clustered together in this well-balanced design. The mix of a black & white photo with the other ones is perfect and it enhances the bits of black & white throughout the page. The color palette is gorgeous each color really pops against the white background.

White Space by rache77

Ah, this make me want to go on vacation to a beach! This page was created for a challenge using white space and it is truly a beautiful example of such. I love the watercolor brush work and sea colors. The photo placed in the geometric frames is wonderful and the clusters and loops around it are simply gorgeous. Notice how the title is tucked in the cluster too…perfect! There’s another fun cluster in the top left corner which compliments the page but allows the white space to shine.

Gorgeous artistry here! One simple word art quote against a white background with brush work added. The perfect recipe for this fabulous card. It’s always a great thing when digi artists create and print their work to use in some way. I need to remember to do that more often. What about you? Technically, we call this a hybrid project and I just love this beautiful card!

Lisbon Pink Street by Dady

I’m totally drawn into this scene with the striking leading lines of the street and archway. The sketch effect on the photo is amazing with so many penciled in colors and textures. I adore the pink street and the placement of the title at the edge of it. The little pink flower and brad are cute elements to tie in with the pink theme here. This page looks so grand with the photo kept at a full-page size. A bit of word art at the bottom is all that was needed to complete this page.

friends by AnikA

I’ll end my post with this fun page. What a great idea to take a series of photos and transform it into a comic book style layout! Love it! Childhood friends are treasures and documenting their adventures, as they say, is priceless. I love the photo effects and speech bubbles, in true cartoon style. The grid design is perfect for multiple photos and the simple brush work and doodles complete this page beautifully.

Okay, it’s off to the red carpet now for the big event in Hollywood! Good luck to everyone and enjoy the show! Afterwards, maybe you’ll have your own special events ready to scrap and can find inspiration from these standouts. As always, please try to leave a comment or two for these artists by clicking on the title links to their gallery pages. They’ll love you for it!
