“Color in a painting is like enthusiasm in life.” Vincent Van Gogh
Here in the middle of the US, it seems like it hasn’t stopped raining in weeks. We officially had the wettest September ever recorded! The rain and wind seem to knock the colorful fall leaves to the ground the moment they change. I need COLOR, and lots of it! So I present to you my colorful choices for today’s standouts…
Pixar Pier Parfait | schnerbear
Marvelous use of color on this fun page! The embellishments are well chosen and perfectly placed. I love all the little buttons, brads, and staples. The chipboard letter title and the journaling (in all caps!) complete this layout brilliantly!
Superstar | EvelynLaFleur
I’m jealous of this cat-napping superstar… and of this perfect page! I love that the title IS the layout. Check out the sweet kitty paper and the tiny date stamped along the very bottom… little details that make this page a standout.
Candy Rufferee | DonnaC
I love how Donna added the flair to her title in this darling Halloween page. Using the journal cards and paper to create the border is very clever. No respectful Halloween page would be complete without a fun little monster and a sprinkling of sweet treats. And who can resist a pup in a costume? Not me! (P.S. I love the clever title… Candy Rufferee!)
Mykonos 2 | Vrielinkie
The embellishments in this layout are fantastic! I love all the different arrows and the journaling snippets here and there. The cameras along the bottom and the paper layers create great balance. And the photo is beautiful. This is a page I want to scraplift!
Friends Forever | MelindaSpinks
This is an incredible page… all those papers! I love the colorful FOREVER stickers placed on the photo and the tabs along the side. The stitching is perfectly messy and using the different font colors on the journaling strips is genius!
Season of Change | luan37
I love the contrast of the elements against the dark wood paper in my last pick. The ribbon and ric rac add extra texture. But those beautiful paper leaves are what really make this page a standout! (I imagine maybe our trees would be this beautiful if all the pretty leaves weren’t laying in wet heaps on the ground.)
Oh look, it’s raining again. If you need me I’ll be back in the galleries searching for more colorful inspiration!
