Happy Saturday! I couldn’t help but notice all the beautiful Christmas layouts that have hit the galleries this weekend, but I’m just not ready for Christmas yet. I still want to enjoy what Fall has to offer, like these gorgeous layouts I picked to share with you.
I was drawn to this first layout, be thankful by sylvia, because of the wonderful color palette in the photo. The autumn gold sweater and overalls just say fall fun to me. I also like the angle of the photo and the way she cropped it — it adds so much interest. Her choice of accents are equally pleasing. The three swirls are reminiscent of leaves blowing around them and the buttons are perfect to anchor her photo. Finally, I love the top of the tag peaking from the lower left corner of the page and her be Thankful message.
Love Autumn Days by Giseli Freitas stood out in the gallery because of the fabulous cluster she created with those big, wonderful leaves — they just shout fall. I love how she combined the realistic leaves with the flat branches, paint and pink flowers to add more interest to her cluster. The doily and hearts highlight her photo well, while adding even more dimension and realism to the page. Her choice of word art finishes the layout perfectly.
The colors and textures of weathered by chigirl are what drew me to her layout. Granted, they do not say fall like the previous two layouts, but they speak of change, which says fall to me. The blending on the background is fabulous and definitely creates the weathered look of the title and word art. Her choice of elements maintains the monochromatic look and worn feel of the page, which lets her photo stand out beautifully.
Again, it was the color palette that drew me to Dream by Anne PC. The mix of coral and aqua is absolutely gorgeous and a nice twist on more traditional fall palettes I am seeing now. Her color scheme is perfect for her wonderful photo as well. I love her simple composition, her paper choices and the use of black as an accent against the coral and aqua. Her use of the quote, with supporting word art strips is a great way to journal.
Beautiful All Around by ArmyGrl is just that, beautiful. Her exquisite photo rightfully takes center stage, and carries, this layout. I love how the background of the photo is blurred to create a canopy of color for the highlighted branch. The orange boarder is the perfect pop of color against the dark background and the enamel heart pin is just the right touch to finish the layout and emphasize her message of a grateful heart.
Much like weathered, Photogenic by Anny-Libelle, isn’t your typical fall layout, even though it incorporates a “fallish” color scheme and fall photos. The photography theme and the addition of black and poppy red gives this layout more pop and contrast which in turn makes the photos shine. Her fun element choices further highlight her theme and I especially love her use of the film strip background and the white stitching. This is a striking page that perfectly shows off her striking photos.
That’s it for me. I hope you enjoyed today’s picks. If you have time, please click on the individual links to leave some love for these memory keepers. Thanks! 🙂
