Greetings everyone! Here in the U.S., I’m seeing signs of spring all around; goldfinches are turning bright yellow, the robins have all returned and there are little green buds on the trees. I’m looking forward to flowers blooming and sunny skies…coming soon I hope! The galleries are certainly blooming with gorgeous layouts and inspiration. Let me share with you my picks for today.
Sweet Summer Afternoon by wombat146
Oh just look at those yummy colors! That gorgeous photo looks like it was intended to be used with this kit. The vase of flowers and the delicious pink lemonade are so inviting. I’d love to be there on a summer afternoon. All of the beautiful flowers and the photo really pop against the neutral background and I love the gradient “Sweet” in the title.

Nothing says spring more than fresh flowers! This is a gorgeous page design and composition with the watering can alongside the beautiful flowers. The purple and yellow compliment each other and I love the lighting and blending of these photos. The stitched frames are darling and add such a wonderful organic element. Once again, a neutral background really makes everything pop.

Fabulous urban layout! I love the photos taken in the city and the energy on this page! The artist’s beautiful daughter looks like a professional model here. The skyline is awesome and is truly the perfect element for these photos. The mix of two classic frames along with the blended 3rd photo is a great combination and the flowers and heart tie them all together well. The colorful title and word art complete this fine page. Great brush work too!
HELLO SPRING by Dea Photograph
What an awesome hybrid project this is! The artist combined traditional scrapbooking with digital and made this explosion album. (If you click on the link, you can find more samples of her pages.) Hybrid projects always make great gifts, something tangible to hold in your hands. I love the cute spring papers with the black & white photos. All of the cute little elements and title block in the center complete this album.
Desert Inn Motel by Miki
This page really jumped out at me! The artistic photo treatment and blending modes are gorgeous and I just love that cactus! You will want to read her story about the cattle ranchers, “crackers” in Florida. Who knew? All of the colors and brush work are beautiful against the teal background. Did you notice the butterfly glows at the bottom of the page? Very cool!
waiting fior spring by MrsPeel
Wow, this layout is absolutely stunning! This was created by the very talented and prolific artist and fellow blogger, MrsPeel. She never ceases to amaze me with her designs…everything from traditional to extraordinaire! I keep looking at this art journal page and it is so rich with brush work, textures and pops of color. The lady is very expressive and I feel like we’re all waiting for spring with her. Love her red heels too! Gorgeous artistry Cynthia!
I think we are ready to spring forth and I hope you enjoyed today’s picks and found inspiration from these amazing artists.
