Good morning and happy Monday. I’ve just spent several hours perusing the galleries and adding to my layout love folder on Pinterest. I’ve finally narrowed down my choices, which is always so very difficult. It’s Beatrice on the blog and here are my picks for today.
It finally feels like spring here in Michigan and I think that may have inspired me to choose this page, Adventure by dkane. The photo series is just precious and I love the cascade down the right hand side of the page. The background is full of texture and supports both the photos and the gorgeous clusters. The single cluster in the bottom right hand corner balances the right hand side of the page perfectly.
Faves by Blackkathy is so appealing in its simplicity. I love the grid design which showcases the photos in an engaging manner. The journaling is interesting to read and I admit that many of these are my favorites also. The large title work adds interest and the few pops of gold in the hearts and skinny paper strip are the only embellishments required to finish off this gorgeous page.
Pink and black are such a striking color combination and no one does it better than myssp in Scrapping the EveryDay. The photo crop on the adorable photo is very pleasing. I really like the variations on love from the ribbon border, to the word art, to the tied tag, to the large black arrow directing the eye into the layout. The bits of pink brush work add just the right amount of texture to the plain white area of the background paper.
Rain or Shine by Captivated Visions really jumped out of the gallery for me. The sketched backdrop is the perfect foundation for the masked photo. I really like the selective framing. The stitched clouds are unique and work well with the stamped clouds. I like the way her journaling stretches almost across the page. The pops of reddish orange in the heart and paint are just right with the otherwise monochromatic page.
Art Feeds Your Soul by scrapmemories is truly outstanding, beginning with the art itself. The butterfly is so dainty and delicate. The narrow framing really sets it off and the black and white hand-drawn flowers are placed almost as if the butterfly has landed there. The tag, black stitching and script title contrast perfectly with the white background, textured with gesso and more stitches but this time in white. This layout is definitely frame-worthy.
Speaking of art, I love the depth of the scene created by clindoeil in Live the life you imagined. The textured background blended with the photo is quite touchable. The brightly colored cascade of hand-drawn flowers down the side contrasts perfectly with the subtle colors of the photo. I really like the touches of bright green in the drops of paint.
As always, I’ve come to the end of my post and travels through the galleries much too quickly. I hope you will take a minute or two to click on either the title or image of each layout and leave these well deserving artists some love. Thanks and I hope you have a great week.
