Monday is not the most popular day of the week but today is a good day for me. It’s an opportunity to wander through the galleries and bring you your daily dose of inspiration. It’s Beatrice and here are my picks for today.

Doing Laps by Keely-b is such a perfect pet page. I really like the whimsical look combined with the goofy photo. Keeping the title large and in black really makes it stand out. I love the play on words too. The journaling is delightful and easy to read. I like the bow she added in the corner and the puppy themed embellishments sprinkled about the page.

The stacked and angled papers make the perfect backdrop in In My Garden by ajm. It’s always fun to see a capture of the layout artist himself/herself. The elements both in front of and behind the photo are beautifully clustered and shadowed. I like the added paint and doodles and the way she used the word strips to replace her title and journaling.

I always think I could never do anything as robust as a weekly project 365 because I don’t have enough photos or enough to say. Week 8 by DELISAK proves me wrong. Of course once I found this page in the gallery I took a peek at the preceding weeks as well. I really like the way the layout looks like a page from a notebook. She only needed to choose one representative photo and add some colorful paint and embellishments to complete the look of her layout. The prompts as well as her responses provide an interesting insight to her personality. Once her book is complete she will have a treasure for sure.

I find I’m becoming more attracted to layouts that document via text and not just photos. Top 10 by AmandaJ is a perfect example. The combination of papers she added to the numbers is just the right mix of solids and patterns. I really like the added paint in the background, especially the rainbow. Keeping the background white is an outstanding way to show off her list. The title work is a creative way to complete the layout.

The photo in Just Stay Little by KayTeaPea is sublime. I enjoyed looking at her recent gallery layouts of her young puppy and finally settled on this one. It’s lovely in its simplicity with the stacked papers and banner mimicking the colors in the photo. The tiny clock supports her theme of the effort to make time stand still.

My final pick Wanderlust by Deekaa uses one of my favorite techniques, filling the background with a large photo. I like the way she kept the title large and ran it across the entire page. The smaller photos show other lovely points of interest. I can’t read the journaling but I imagine it talks about an outstanding vacation. I like the way she added the faint lines behind the words to help them stand out from the photo.

I’ve come to the end of my post and can only look forward to my next turn on the blog. I hope you have enjoyed today’s inspiration and if you have a minute please click through the links and leave these well deserving artists some love. Thanks and have a great week!
