Happy New Year everyone! I know it’s been 16 days in January but this is my first post of 2017. I missed posting and am so glad to be back. I had a hard time choosing my layouts today as there are SO many awesome ones in the galleries. The designers are really outdoing themselves already!! I can’t wait to see more. My DH bought me a new laptop as an early birthday present and I cannot wait to scrap on it as it’s lightening fast. I’ve enjoyed looking for now though and here are my picks for today.
I love a vintage looking layout and this one by Beckturn did not disappoint. I love the monotone feel to it. I really love the photo in front of the doily and the blend and extraction are just divine! The text behind the photo is actual handwriting from one of the brothers in the photo. Just amazing what digital can do! I love this one and it deserves the GSO!
This layout by Conny is just exquisite. Conny is a master at the cluster and the colours she uses are always a standout. I Love how she fitted the photos between the gorgeous clusters and the dymo labels in between. The photos, as always, are top notch and adorable, and the paint spatters fit in beautifully with the look without being overwhelming. The newsprint paper background ties it all together. Just outstanding as usual!
This layout caught my eye immediately in the gallery. The blending here is just amazing. I love the whole feel of the layout, it’s dark, but not in a scary way. I love the inking around the photo and the beautiful flower element in her hair. I really like the doodles and how creative this whole layout really is. Props to *gina* for an amazing work of art!
This layout by Gonewiththewind is so well balanced and so well done. I really love how she used the same photo of her beautiful kids each month. What a great way to document their relationship and their changes over a year period. The fact also, that this is a template made by Cheryl herself, is outstanding. The placement of the elements and the shadows are a standout in itself. Love everything about this!
Finally, this wonderful layout could be my new favourite of all time. I just adore the photos in this layout by mamashade. I love the layering of the old papers and envelopes in the top corner of the large blended photo. I really love the stamp in the corner of the actual photo! The background paper blended is amazing and I love the whole feel of this. It makes me want to go to Venice and take some shots myself! Just outstanding work here!!
Well that’s it for me today. I hope everyone has a wonderful week and as always, keep scrapping and sharing your work for us! We love looking at it! Make sure to leave these amazing layouts some love! Happy Scrapping everyone!
