Good Monday afternoon. After a relaxing few days at the lake, we are heading back to reality tomorrow. I really enjoyed being able to take my time browsing the galleries and, as usual, found all sorts of inspiration there. Its Jane here today with just a few of the pages which inspired me.
With Father’s Day being yesterday, I found several wonderful tributes in the gallery – Father’s Day by Iowan was the first one I came across. I love the mix of happy photos (don’t you just love that paper tie) and the crisp blue and white color combo with touches of green. An awesome pocket page! (Funnily enough, we played Apples to Apples this weekend too.)
PS June 2019 by Rollinchen is the final stage in a progressive scrap. I have never tried a progressive scrap and I love how this has turned out. The beautiful blending and the subtle gradient on the large photo is appealing, especially with the underlying elements subtly peeking through. Then she’s very effectively repeated the photo on a torn piece of paper and framed it simply with a piece of stapled string.
My next pick is A Day in My Life by Jam-on-Toast. Another crisp blue and white combo with multiple photos. I love how she’s used clothes pins to clip the photos in a seemingly haphazard manner to the background grid and interspersed them with word strips and journal tags. The journaling framing the page adds the perfect final touch.
My Dad by Mielz is another beautiful Father’s Day tribute. I love how she’s used the scripted border to frame the three photos of her dad taken over time. Clean and simple perfection!
Lemurs Rock by Cinderella is such a fun, whimsical page with fabulous title work and shadowing! I love the curving zebra striped paper with elements playfully trailing down the page – an awesome design!
Bo’s Beach by Scrapmemories is my final pick of the day. The framing of that happy photo really drew me in at first – I love that casual stitched blue jean texture. The more I looked at the page, the more I realized just how much more detail there was – the sunny touches of yellow, those crumpled stars, the beachy elements and watery background brushwork and, finally the little boat topping the great font she’s used for her title. Just delightful!!
I hope you enjoyed my choices for today. As always, please remember to leave a little love in the galleries for these wonderful artists.
