Hello everyone, I hope you’re all enjoying the tail end of the weekend. I remain pretty much absent in the scrapping world still given that life and the day job have gotten in the way this past couple of weeks but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed catching up on all the delightful layouts that have been gracing the galleries! Let me share the gems I found for you today…
I would never have guessed that Laid Back Christmas by lynnpremo was, in fact, a Christmas page. I love the unusualness of this, the neutral tones and the sheer calmness. The fabulous photo treatment and the sketchy framing focus the eye on the detail and the flock of birds and text bottom and right provide the perfect visual triangle. A beautiful layout that inspires me to make a start on my unusual December stories for 2016!
I always admire travel pages and Antibes by Dady caught my eye immediately. I particularly like that the different sized squares, so uniform and precise, reveal parts of the photo and the super blending is the foundation for the layout. Again, beautiful tones make this page so soft on the eye. A very clever page!
My next pick really made me catch my breath when I spotted it in the gallery. Change by fanon is a perfect example of less being more. By choosing just a few elements, fanon has really made her adorable photo’s stand out and the little pops of colour, a dainty bow and the stencilled-look title finish this project off perfectly. Absolutely gorgeous!
Changing up the tempo a little is Photoless Style by flowersgal. I can’t begin to tell you how much the mix of word art and journaling resonate with me right now. I like the page design, the large, bold block that is powerful in it’s own right and the supporting journaling that explains some thoughts that a lot of us consider from time to time. When my confidence wanes, I’m going to revisit this super layout!
The crop and beautiful tone of the photo on Me by paperandglitter sparked my curiosity and led me to take a closer look. Gentle layering cushions the photo and I love the little swan that is tucked in there! The geometric shapes tie the focus of the page to the word art and date while the coloured strokes, black and white matting and the little gold clips add an unusual touch. A beautiful, soft page!
As we’re heading into the month of love next week and the stores are filling up with Valentine goodies, I thought it fitting to end off my post tonight with a beautiful ‘love’ page, Together Two Years by Amy L. I like how the closeness of the cute couple in the photo is mirrored in the layers and elements that are so closely knit. The soft paint and drawn frames add interest while the black and white frame draws the photo out nicely. The title work does a fine job of telling the story and I love the additional journaling supporting the content of this page. Finished off with those cute little flairs with hearts , this is such a sweet layout!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my picks for today. If you get a chance, please click on the links above and leave a comment or two for the artist. Have a good week and I’ll see you in the galleries! Take care, bye bye!
