Today’s post is being brought to you from the snowy, cold state of MI. I know some of you are suffering far worse and I like to remind myself that I choose to live here. So for now I’ll just tell myself that it’s a good day to wander the galleries and be inspired by all the lovely projects I find. It’s Beatrice and here are my picks for today.
I’m always attracted to photos of people taking photos and these are particularly charming. The page design is outstanding with so much texture it’s touchable. The camera masked in the background adds interest and supports the theme. The bits of paint bring out the color in the photos.
I really enjoy the vintage take on a modern theme. The stacking is artfully done and I like that she included so much ephemera. The creased and folded papers make for a perfect frame and the quote is a great reminder of what’s important in life.
The diagonal flow of this art journal page is very eye-catching. I like the way it’s emphasized by the string and cascading flowers. The font she chose is legible and just right for her quote. The whimsical frame and paper stacking behind make the photo the focal point of the page.
Then and now pages always captivate me and this one is very special. The journaling/title work is amazing in the way it utilizes a combination of fonts and alphas. Placing the watch brush behind underscores the passage of time. The stitched paper blocks are so pretty and only a few embellishments are needed to complete the page flawlessly.
The split page design is perfect for this simple page. I like the way the curly string spills out from the circular word art. The vertically oriented quote is perfectly placed along the paper strip completing the uncluttered look of the page. The shadows of the flowers are just outstanding.
I’m a fan of this artist especially because she typically manages to squeeze a lot on the page without it appearing cluttered. The combination of journal cards and photos tell a visual story. The clusters are perfectly placed in a visual triangle.
I hope you have a few minutes to leave these well deserving artists some love and that you are inspired to do some creating of your own.
