Happy Sunday! It’s always such a treat to wander through the galleries during the iDSD period because there’s even more eye candy on show than normal! And I have two bonus picks, making a total of 8 gorgeous layouts on show today because, quite simply, each and every one of these deserves a shout out. So let’s begin…

I love the design of Silly Face by mrivas, the central clustering of layers including those super stamped frames and word art, and the little pieces of detail here and there. I also like how the pretty little butterfly on the left balances the neat cluster and paper strip to the right. The placement of the journaling is perfect and the see-through title alpha keeps the layout light and airy. Way too cute!

Hope by clindoeil is just so pretty! Lots of lovely white space give the minimalistic detail a classy look and I love the visual triangle between the three edge clusters that lead the eye around the page. The circular, black and white photo is delicately decorated and a little word art finishes this page of beautifully. A really pretty layout!

Beautiful paint splatters and a light pattern form the backdrop for the layered detail, so expertly shadowed, in Isa Marks’ layout entitled Moments. I particularly like the mix of colours here and the tones of the layer mix give the photo a loud pop! A great choice of elements, a cute little cluster to the bottom and some added texture and contrast with the black cotton and stitching, certainly make this page a winner!

Speaking of pop, check out Favourite Things by yellowpeep. I love how the black and white photo is contrasted with the different coloured hearts and the mix and match word art and brush work, and how the blending gives way for the heartfelt journaling. Wonderful!

Photo clusters are a great way to showcase numerous images on a page while still leaving room for some detail. Studio Work 2016 by lizj is a perfect example and I love how the backdrop comprising brushwork, paint, word art and stitching, supports the story. A terrific, multi-photo  page!

I first spotted Happy Moments by Oldenmeade on Facebook and I was delighted when I managed to find it in the gallery! The soft tones of pink/peach and grey are so, so pretty and I love the blending of the free spirited and carefree photo that’s making a statement by pushing through the photo frame. Absolutely gorgeous!

Now then, Adventure by soapHOUSEmama stopped me in my tracks as I took in all those lovely chunky layers. One by one, I checked them out, enjoying how they’re providing a spot for that sweet image to nestle inside the sequin and jewel border. The element cluster to the right balances perfectly with the title work and the handwritten journaling is priceless. So beautiful!

It seems quite fitting to end off my post today with Shhh!! by Ernie88. I like the design here, the circular image, so very beautiful in it’s own right, but highlighted with the doodle frame sits perfectly on the horizontal platform of elements. Again, more great shadowing and those cut out stars are just fabulous! So adorable!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my choices for today and that they inspire you to record some of your own stories. When you have a moment, please click on the links above and leave a comment or two for the artists. Have a super week and I’ll see you in the galleries!
