In the aftermath of yesterday’s tragic fire at Notre Dame de Paris, I have to say that I am very thankful that so many of the art works and much of this historical architectural wonder were saved through the monumental efforts of the 400 firefighters on scene. Notre Dame managed to survive the French Revolution and two world wars but a simple accident almost destroyed it. All these beautiful monuments are just so very fragile.

My first pick today is We Love to Travel by Vrielinkie. I love how she’s pulled the teal and gold from that lovely big photo onto her page using both papers and elements. Then, she’s created a couple of awesome clusters using repeating camera elements mixed with word strips. A fabulous travel page!

Love by Marnie333 has a wonderful diagonal flow to the page. I love the beautifully masked photo, great textures and brushwork along with a couple of splashes of pink and blue. So pretty!!

Hello Sunshine by Erin8776 has lovely soft background brushwork, with multiple layers of elements tucked behind that sweet photo. I love how she’s placed patterned paper squares in a film strip frame and mixed both horizontal and vertical acrylic chevrons with a layer of painted ones. Just beautifully designed.

Next up is a delightful spring page which really popped in the gallery – Surprise by BevG. The pink of the flowers, background brushwork and papers contrasts perfectly with that crystal clear blue sky. I also love that she’s used three different types of framing on her photos.


Those Umbrellas by Trish 6150 is such a happy colorful page! I love the water color background and how she’s used bows to create the umbrella handles. I could see this page as a wonderful piece of spring wall art.

My last pick today, Sunkissed by Adrianita, has an adorable photo with perfectly chosen elements which emphasize the beachy feel of her page. I love all her layers and the swirly stitches in the background.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my choices for today. Please try to leave a little love in the gallery for these amazing artists.
