I’m excited to write my first blog post for March. There are a lot of overworked phrases about the weather in Michigan, so I’ll just say it’s a cool and rainy day, perfect for exploring in the galleries and hunting down inspiration. It’s Beatrice and here are my picks for today.
Simplicity by Azeline really stood out in the gallery for me. I love the layout design with the photos crossing the page diagonally and clusters and paint in the opposite corners. The sepia photos work perfectly with the colors in the papers and embellishments. I like that she chose a solid paper for her background which really makes the photos and embellishments the focus.
The masking and blending in Perfect Right Here by DivaMom96 make for a gorgeous piece of art. I love the subject she chose, both about herself and her photography. I’m not certain if it’s intentional but the scribble above the title looks just like a heart, perfect for her theme. The pop of orange in the flower compliments the photos and works so well with the otherwise blue background in the layout.
Practice Makes Perfect by stacia hall is absolutely stunning. I love the photo crop, that she made it black and white and kept it large. I enjoyed reading her heartfelt journaling. The concentric circles of tiny stars reinforce her theme. The word bits and arrows sprinkled about are the ideal embellishments for the page.
I am really impressed by the layout design in Dreaming by ReneeB . The overlapping pie shapes are perfect for showcasing all the patterned papers. I like the way she omitted one of the pieces and replaced it with the word art. Framing the colorful photos in white, makes them stand out. Finally, tucking the banner into the cluster is a great design touch.
I’m rarely able to write a blog post without showing at least one heritage or pet page or sometimes even both. The Simple Life by EllenT is such a beautiful heritage layout. The photo is lovely of course and I really like the way she added the card behind. Her clusters are so pretty and her shadowing is outstanding. I like the way she tucked the ornate frame into one of the clusters. The bits of paint and handwriting, as well as the tape measure ribbon are clever additions to her heritage layout.
I couldn’t pass up Undeniably You by Shannamay. How cute is this kid and his unmatched sense of fashion? I really like the stacked photos and the way she incorporated the tag into her paper stack. The brushwork and scatters of stars and buttons are perfectly suited to her theme. I love the combination of fonts she used to create her title.
My fun is over and I’ve come to the end of my post. I hope you will click either on the title or the actual layout itself to visit the gallery and leave some love for these incredibly talented artists. Thanks and have a great week.
