Hello and welcome to the October 9th edition of Gallery Standouts.    I’ve been browsing the galleries in search of some beautiful pages to share with you.  There was an abundance of inspiration today, and these are my top six choices:

Leaf Peeping by christa

I admit to being a leaf peeper myself.   The fall color report map shows that we’re about 75% into peak colors.  Maybe next weekend I’ll be doing some peeping of my own.  This is such a pretty autumn page!  There is plenty of white space here, which guides your focus to those black and white photos.  I like the patterned paper in rectangle shapes behind the photos, and the 3-point leaf placement.   Awesome shadowing on them by the way.

Project Life Spread by LauraWonsik

This is an interesting design for Project Life.  I like the journaling placement as well as the thin horizontal lines, just a hint of pattern and elements, and the corner title.  Most of all, I was drawn to something as simple as a slight rotation.  It really makes a huge impact.

Autumn by beaute

What a great vintage photo to frame.  Speaking of framing . . .  I really like how she used these frames in such an artistic way.  I also like the wordart, and the horizontal paper strip behind both the photo and wordart.  There is plenty of subtle brushwork, and white space too.  Beautiful design!

You by keepscrappin

This is such an interesting design.  I love the bold black and white pattern as a background, with the torn paper on top of it.  Wonderful layering of papers and elements with both bold and soft colors and patterns,  all drawing you into that sweet photo.  Love the large title too, and some scribbles for good measure.    I REALLY like this page.

Photo Adventures by suzanner

What an interesting page!  I love the lengthy journaling that hugs the shape of the main design.  The placement of the multiple photos is totally creative and I just love how she included a cropped selfie photo in her travel photos.  This is super fun.

Glorious Days Of Autumn by lenak

This is the perfect way to end an autumn post.  These bright autumn colors make my heart sing.  The photo itself is gorgeous, and the floral cluster on the side simply adds to the beauty.  I like the artistic background, the black swirls, and what a great title.  This really makes me want to go out and enjoy some of my own autumn beauty.

And with that I’ll call it a day.  I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s selections, and have a little time to do some gallery surfing of your own.  It’s good for the soul.

  1. WOW! How did I miss this. I guess it’s been a super busy week. Thanks for picking my layout. It was really fun to play with Dawn’s torn paper and all those fabulous vintage-y pieces from Danyale.
