Hello on a damp, cold and rainy October evening, I’m enjoying my time browsing the galleries armed with a glass of wine. Jane here with my picks for the Gallery Standouts Blog today.
First up is Boo Crew by Aly321. I love the spider web which grounds the photo and the fabulous cluster work on this page. Converting the photo to b/w really made it stand out from the wonderful clusters the artist has created here.
A second Halloween layout, Fright by Tia Adair, also features a black and white photo, layered over a great mix of patterned papers. I love how she created a vertical design by adding the upper and lower stitched papers and elements. A few splashes of orange really draw your eye to the photo.
Continuing my unintended Halloween theme, we have Captured October by DivaMom96. Who could resist that adorable photo. I love the hexagonal shaped background – just a wonderful clean page!
Just Me and My Dump Truck by Pizazz is such a fun, colourful page. Cute photos are combined with a delightful mix of elements and word art plus I love how the paint splatters mimic dirt.
Will Run for Beer by Heidi Nicole is my next pick. What a great design – I love how your eye is drawn down the center of the page to the journaling block. The artist has used all the different square types to create her page and accented them with colorful elements – super cute and I love the title!!
My last pick today is Time for a Cuppa by Vrielinkie. I love how the artist has split the photo into two hanging frames, then created a delightful cluster of coffee themed elements to add to her theme. The final perfect touches are the coffee stains stamped on the background.
That’s is all from me tonight. I hope you enjoyed my picks! Congratulations if you are featured, and, if you appreciate the pages, please leave a bit of love for these awesome artists.
