Hello! I’ve finally made it here after spending a glorious time in the galleries, seeing all the wonderful creativity that’s out there, across the world today. It’s taken me a while to narrow my selection down to ensure this post doesn’t go on infinitely! I often find myself drawn to a particular specific, be it one photo pages, seasonal pages, pages with little or lots of journaling, I could go on but today it seems to have been a particular colour palette that grabbed my attention… but there was also a layout that defied that palette too! Let’s take a look at my shout outs for today.
I love the banner style of Shine Bright by Tachita55 with all the delicate elements carefully layered against the soft backdrop of the brushwork and cascading down the page. It reminds me of a beautiful charm bracelet just waiting to be worn. The title work, the little cluster and the blocked border to the bottom keeps the eye focused on the amazing detail of the page. So very pretty!
Ga_L has made great use of different angles to house some perfectly coordinated patterned paper on her page entitled Grand Prix Historique, creating a lot of interest and energy on the layout. The series of photo’s play along too and as the title work and journaling take centre stage, there’s some strategically placed labels, buttons and flairs that make sure you don’t miss any of the detail. A terrific page!
The thumbnail of Summer Days fill my Thoughts and Dreams Today by *gina* was bursting with glamour in the gallery and beckoned me to take a closer look. Gorgeous texture here – both in the backdrop and in the photo mask. The pretty, feminine cluster, a little brush work and the word art balance the page beautifully. Love this!
My heart goes out to the little guy in Oops! by Ozegirl. I couldn’t resist his cute smile despite having a shiner! I love how every single element of this layout makes a terrific contribution to the playfulness of it, the framing of the photo, the brush work mix, the little arrowed journaler and the awesome title work, all balanced beautifully by the strip to the right which ensures the journaling doesn’t also take a fall! And the shadowing of the twine… fabulous! I hope your eye is better soon and remember, you’ve got to be careful out there sweetie!
You will make it by Margje is just so pretty. I love the colour mix with a little black detail adding super contrast and the amazing collection of masks and brush work that has been pulled together to create this masterpiece. The white framing of the images gives the impression that the observer is looking into a mirror and I like the position of the journaling, leading to the pretty lonesome flower. So gorgeous!
The warmth of Summer Memories by marijke simply glows and again, another great brush work mix using splashes of black as a great contrast, forms a wonderful backdrop for the unusual photo cluster. I like the unassuming title work and those three little bead letters on the thread are perfectly placed. So beautiful!
And now I come to the layout that defied my colour combination today. I couldn’t pass by July by bbymks5! Photo’s spanning a number of frames always make for a great layout and the vibrant colours are so happy and perfect for a special day. A fun title and a very appropriate cluster add even more punch and I just love all the sugar on this page!
