Good morning and I hope you are ready for the start of a new week. I know I am especially since I’ve just had the pleasure of wandering through the galleries looking for outstanding projects to feature on today’s blog post. It’s Beatrice and here are my picks for today.
SGI by earlofoxford definitely jumped out of the gallery for me. The photos are outstanding and I love the horizontal design. The turquoise and gold make for a stunning palette but what makes this layout really unique is the framing and placement of the vertically aligned smaller photos. Using formal frames on casual photos is such a creative idea and it worked out so very well.
I know I’m attracted to large photo layouts and I have chosen another in Point Bonita Lighthouse by AnotherAmanda. The perspective on the photo is amazing and makes me wonder if she had to contort herself to take it. There’s not much embellishing required when the photo takes center stage; just a little paint and bits of text. I like the pop of red in the tag and how two different versions of the same circle word art are used.
Such a pretty photo is displayed in Message from the Past by *gina*. The photo treatment works well with the monochromatic look of the layout. I really like the partial framing and the blend of the wood-like paper with the background. The bit of text to the right of the photo supports the theme and the cluster below and to the left is lovely and perfectly shadowed.
Summer Dreams by caapmun also uses a nearly monochromatic palette. I love the way she divided the photo by masking a large section and placing the smaller split-framed section on top. Adding the sketchy flowers below the leafy clusters is very effective. The bits of paint on the edges and into the canvas are the perfect finishing touch.
The layout design in Greece by Swan82 is very effective in displaying a great number of photos. The large masked photo in the center serves as the focal point for the smaller photos surrounding. The flowers scattered about and clustered at the bottom add a touch of color to this gorgeous layout.
My final pick is a hybrid project, DIY Embellishments by cropkat. When you click through the link to leave her some love (hint, hint) be sure to check out the blog post she has written for instructions and more photos of her project. I really like the colorful tabs and tags she created using her digital supplies.
I’ve come to the end of my post and I know I repeat myself but these artists would really appreciate it if you click through either the links or the photos and leave them some well deserved praise. Thanks and have a great week!
