Hi all you digiscrap addicts… Welcome to a new week in digiworld! Amazing layouts have been flying about… here’s just a sampling!
To start off with, a nice warm page from margie in the Netherlands: New Year, New Adventures! I love how she treated the photo by playing with the Threshhold function, and overlaid the map onto the coat. Such a cool, artsy page!
This great page design by Candy Lai caught my eye: Indexed. Not only did I like the slanted paper strips, but also that the focal point is a big space with only wordart instead of the actual photo, whereas the photo is instead on the left. A nice little irony! And the story is great, too.
Then I found “Life,” by Tissie12. I was struck by the repeated motif of the eyes, the color fourths in the background, and the great use of contrast to focus attention.
I really enjoyed scrap-genie’s “New Leaf” metaphor for a newly discovered member of a family tree with the find of an old photograph bearing information on the back. What a cool way to document this!
“Another Photoshoot” by Meryl is such a wonderful expression of family fun and energy! It uses a wide range of patterns and textures, but a fairly monochromatic and subdued color range that ties everything together. And that composite photo is just so much fun.
My final page for the evening is christellevandyk’s super-fun “Sole Mates.” So much to like here: black and white and color, lots of yummy brushwork, the great use of an outline font over the thicker-lined paper, and to crown it all, that fun photo!
I hope everybody manages to retreat to a safe digiscrapping spot to avoid all the temperature extremes across the globe… Scrap on!
