Hello and happy Saturday! Today’s post is all about textures and shapes and the fun we have mixing it up in our designs. I had a lot of fun looking through the galleries today, and I hope you will enjoy the standouts I found to share. Let’s take a look!

This is Liz J., and these are my picks.

Trick or Treat by digi371

There were a lot of super cute Halloween pages in the galleries today, but this one was far and away my favorite. In part, because the elements are not cute, but are really pretty and elegant. It made for a really unusual background for those adorable trick-or-treaters. I like the way Sherry effectively used the corners on this page, very clever!

Totally Booked by scrapapicture

Any page about books is going to get my attention! Love all the little bookish elements. The grid style helps keep this page from being too busy, and allows nice little spots for each patterned paper and element. I like the bookcase running vertically behind all of the other elements, that’s a fun touch.

Tough Cookies by MelissaMarti

When a particular kit is released, we often see lots of different takes on the kit, which is fun to look at as a whole. I liked this one a lot, because the focus was on these tough little cookies gearing up for ski season. The big, bold scallops make quite an impact. I like the real-looking elements with the deep shadow-work on this one too.

Adventure Wanderlust by NAdams

This is a stunningly beautiful scene she captured! Such a wonderful travel page. Love the textures and the fun alpha bracelet tiles for the word art. The text brush is a nice touch. The rainbow peeking out of the photo is the perfect accent all on its own.

Irma 1939 by Craftytamm

This page made me yearn for simpler times. I love the vintage photo set against the light wood background. There are a number of elements that stand out for me on this one, but I particularly like the sprinkling of stars. The painted border rounds out the color scheme nicely, matching all of the paper supporting the photo. Really lovely page.

Around Here by Ernie88

This page is just adorable! I love how the bright patterns in the papers light up the dark background. Very fun patterns too, accented in the arrows leading us across the page. I like the combination of the closely cropped photo on the bottom with the bigger angled view of the top photo. Together they paint a fun picture of what Erin’s son is up to!

And those are the standouts for this beautiful autumn day. If you enjoyed these as much as I did, please click on the linked titles and leave the artists some well-earned love and praise! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!
