It was another gorgeous day in sunny Florida although I spent most of it at our local scrapbook store helping them get ready for their annual Shop Hop.  As we headed home, it was one roadblock after another and it took us almost two hours to make the 45 minute trip.  But once I got home, my husband prepared dinner so I could eat and browse the galleries at the same time.  Wow, are the galleries loaded right now.  There are so many challenges going on and so many pages being created for them.  It took me almost twice as long to make it through the galleries as usual.  But how enjoyable it was!  Here are my six picks for this last day of January 2017.

The minute I saw Boardwalk Sketch by ashleywb I fell in love!  I love the sketch treatment on the photo. I love the placement of the frame. I love the embellishment choices and I love the placement of the word art.   I really love the softness of it.  In fact, I just LOVE this page!

I’m a big fan of well-done art journal pages and This Year by wvsandy is a gorgeous example!  The colors on this page are so beautiful together and the touch of orange really pops!  The word art really speaks to me.  Such a precious art journal doll and how cute is that bird?  All around perfect art journaling page!

MOC 15 by Jeanet is a stunning piece of art.  On her post she has added below the main picture smaller shots of the layers she used to create this amazing page.  The depth she has created is gorgeous.  I especially enjoy the grunge on top of the layers.  And another word art quote that is so true!  This should be printed and hung on a wall so it can be enjoyed all the time.

I’ve been seeing a lot of triangles in the galleries and I really love the look of them.  Good Times by Mielz starts with a beautiful brushwork backdrop.  The photo is arranged in the triangle cluster for maximum impact.  She has done an awesome job with the embellishments.  Beautiful, serene page!

What a treasure Pepette has created with her New Style page.  It appears that I’m being drawn to pages today that have white backgrounds.  The bright colors with the black just pop off the page and demand that you take a closer look.  Pepette has created a beautiful cluster to highlight that adorable photo.  Those eyeglass frames in the cluster are so cute!  Love how she’s grounded the photo cluster with the brush stroke.  Awesome page!

I think we can all relate to the journaling on 2017 AIM by Vicki Stegall.  Please visit the gallery to read it – you won’t regret the time taken.  I was drawn to this one initially by the placement of the journaling/embellishment, and title.  Perfect.  Especially with the little added touch of the date along the bottom left side. Amazing page!

I loved my time in the galleries today.  I hope you take the opportunity to get an up-close look at these fabulous pages and leave a comment for the artists. As usual, the titles and images are linked to make it easy to visit the gallery page.
