Hello on a beautiful fall Tuesday afternoon. After getting some yard clean-up done this afternoon, I’m now enjoying time browsing the galleries. Jane here with my picks for the Gallery Standouts Blog today.
First up is Happiness by Twinsmomflor which really popped out of the gallery with that adorable photo which is beautifully framed with grungy cardboard. I love the contrast between the neutral layered background papers and the hot pink of the little one’s glasses, paint splash and word art. Finally the artist has added some great texture to the page with gesso and multiple layers of stamps.
Next we have Under Construction by Florida Granny. This is such a lovely feminine page with the soft painted background paper, textured doilies, messy stitching and perfectly placed loopy thread. A simple cluster of a heart, scissors and word strip create the perfect finishing touch.
Oh my! I fell in love with the joyful smile of the little girl in School is Cool by Tierre. Check out those wonderful school themed elements and word art laid over misted paint, with a blended white and graph paper background. There’s such fun whimsical feel to this page – I love it!
Next up we have another super cute photo of two little would be ballerinas in Marjike’s 19-09 page. I love the clean simplicity of this page, with the subtle printed papers and horizontal design. The three circle shapes really draw your eye, while a scattering of bling, tiny flower and flowing ribbon complete the page beautifully.
Lady by Simplette is another delightful white space page. I love the layered framing of the photo which perfectly captures the cat’s character and is accented by a pretty cluster of leaves, chess board and tipped over game pieces.
My final pick today is Entre Cousins by Hildy. I love how the artist has combined the watery masks with the scenic photos, then added three smaller framed detail photos. She has really let the photos shine here with just a bit of added texture and paint.
I hope you enjoyed my picks for today. Congratulations to those featured, and, if you have a chance, leaving a bit of love to these awesome artists only takes a minute! Until the next time.
