Hello and happy Wednesday! Oh, today’s picks are so wonderful, and I am very excited to share them with you! I hope you enjoy these too. Let’s take a look!
This is Liz J. and these are my picks.
It’s like we’re looking through the windshield at this group! I love the whimsical touches, and how she used the edges so well. Great shadow-work on this one! It’s not a perfect picture, and that’s part of the appeal to me, since she made it work for the fun tone of this page. The big lettering makes a nice bold statement.
Who better to showcase designs than the designer! I loved the use of the elegant background paper, word strips and off-center-focus on that adorable photo. The little strip of papers bordering the top, adorned with the stitching and cool arrow element totally worked. I like the photo treatment on this, toning down the photo a bit helped me to look more closely. The two different styles of hearts above and below the photo were a nice touch to keep your eye focused where it belongs.
I love the idea of keeping a traveler’s notebook by your side, recording all the achievements and quirks of your child! In this case she was recording his current “likes,” a style of documenting childhood that I just love. The photo treatment makes this look vintage. I love the yellow color blocking, use of tags and sticker title. And, best of all, it’s a real life notebook, so she can add to it and embellish however she wants!
This is a marvelous color study! Very bold and well framed with that grid behind and surrounding the photos. Nice, subtle extractions on this page. I like the unusual chocolate color she converted the photos to before the spot coloring.
This had me grinning big (Super Cheesing!) too! What drew me in was the hilarious slogan on this clearly-not-a-gangsta child! Her expression and that photo capture are just priceless. Love the use of the big photo, with all the fun embellishments running up the side. That’s a great way to journal, with word strips staggered throughout. Thanks for my smile of the day!
There is something so special about a comparison page spanning a life. The fact that Rachael had a photo of this charming fellow in a tux twice in his life was pretty darn amazing! I love the soft look she gave this, and the red, black and white color scheme is very striking. The framing over the all-grown-up-now photo really makes a statement. Really wonderful page.
Those were so fun, weren’t they? If you loved today’s picks please click on the linked title and leave the artist some well-earned praise. Have a great rest of the week!
