Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your weekend so far. I saw my first robin the other day, so I’m excited that spring is just around the corner, here anyway. I truly enjoy the change of seasons. I also enjoy going through the galleries and finding layouts that delight and inspire me. This is Jana and here are my picks for today. I hope you get inspired as well.

Wild Rose by caapmun

Speaking of spring…let’s start with this gorgeous page! It begins with the fantastic macro shot of that bright fuchsia flower. Take a closer look to see what’s sitting right in the center of it. A fly! The little blended cluster in the bottom corner compliments it perfectly. I adore spillover frames like the one she used here. They add such an artistic touch. All of the watercolor blooms blended into the background really make this a stunning piece. Happy spring standout!

What a lovely, soft page this is! The neutral background, which is a great mix of a solid with a woodgrain, is the perfect place for her sweet photo and elements to rest. The pastel colors she used are beautiful together, as is the mix of patterns. I think they work well with the geometric shapes and stitching. Gorgeous brushwork  too! I also like how she placed the word art in the solid square next to the photo and then added just a few elements to complete her page. Wonderful standout!

Wow! This is certainly an exciting space page! I’m trying to take it all in and I feel like I would have really liked to have been there too. Great blending of a few photos in the background lets us know there were lots of people around for this event. I can just imagine looking up into space and taking in all the views that day. Her focal photo really pops by placing it where she did. I love the countdown clock and her title work! Out of this world standout!

This is a fabulous masculine page and what a handsome guy! The background is amazing, combining hexagons, word art and lots of brush work. Beautiful colors too! I love the way this artist blended the large photo into the page, yet kept most of its opacity. Many times, scrappers blend photos but lower the opacity for effect, which is fine too, but I really like how this is done. The smaller photo looks like it was just opened and pulled out from that envelope and it makes me wonder where it was sent from. The stitching is the perfect way to ground it to the page. Handsome standout!

Good party by myla

A party (holiday) for grandmothers is the theme for this beautiful page. Okay, that just melts my heart. What a lovely and special holiday. The background patterns, all in black and white, are very striking and really make the beautiful yellow tulips pop. Tulips just say spring, don’t they? The lace is so delicate and I’m sure it reminds a lot of us of fancy tea parties and heirlooms our own grandmothers may have had. The photo and setting are lovely and the scripted title is perfect. Special holiday standout!

I leave you with this beautiful page and its powerful message! I love the blended photo with the leading lines of the road. The framed focal photo, placed right on top of that road, really draws the eye in. The colors of nature grace this page and the little bird sitting on the guard rail is so sweet. Keep the Kleenex handy as you read the artist’s journaling. The word art says it all. The simple elements like the stitching and the purple flowers is all that was needed to complete this page. Heartfelt standout!

Hey, there’s still plenty time this weekend to enjoy your activities, take some photos and perhaps scrap some pages of your own! Have fun no matter what you do and if you feel so inclined, please leave a thought or two for these deserving artists. As always, just click on the links to get to the actual gallery. I’ll be back again next week. Enjoy!
