Hey everyone!!  Deborrah here today with some outstanding layouts from around the web.  It’s about to storm, again, here in Florida.  It’s really the perfect time to surf the web.  Today, I was struck by the number of layouts using truly amazing photos.  So, I selected layouts that not only feature a wonderful photo, but create a layout designed to showcase the photo for maximum effect.  I hope you like them!

Scraplift Challenge by marijke

First up, we have this adorable layout.  I love white space layouts and this one is well done.  The circle around the photo is the first thing that caught my eye, and then I started to look at all of her elements and papers.  But it’s the stitches and multi colored arrows that really brought everything together for me.  Like a said, a great photo deserves a great layout to show it off.  And this one is a great example!

Beach by mrsashbaugh

I LOVE THE BEACH and this layout just screams that message.  What an adorable photo!  And what a fabulous design to show it off!  I love the layered hexagons, the hexagon grid and all of the beachy elements scattered around them.  This artist has created some gorgeous clusters!  I love the multicolored background  and the paint and splatters behind the photo.  Everything is tied together so beautifully!  Outstanding!

Crazy COVID town by musicmom3

This is a powerful layout!  A poignant photo along with a mother’s musings really captured my heart.  You must read the journaling!  There is so much going on here that expresses her message:  the blending, paint and splatters around the photo and over the page – they all coalesce to create a mystical, dreamy effect, that perfectly expresses the mother’s thoughts.  Beautifully done.

Sunday Mood by jenn mccabe

This was the first layout I picked today.  I knew that regardless of what else I found, this one was going into the blog.  Is that a face or what?!  I love her black, white and pink color scheme – it’s perfect for the whimsical feeling of the layout.  I adore how she layered her photo over a card, paints and art marks and really showcased the heart.  It’s a whimsical, artsy layout that makes you want to hug your pet.  I love this!

That Summer Feeling by mrivas

I loved this layout as soon as I saw it.  That photo captures fun – what a beautiful smile!  I love how the artist took her design from her daughter’s dress.  The floral papers, the blue, green and scarlet flowers wonderfully used.  I love that feather!  Beautiful brushwork behind the photo; it really adds depth and movement to the layout.  Fabulous!

Yesterday was heavy by traumelfe

Lastly, I bring you a layout that truly blew me away.  I’ve seen this photo used before, but in this layout, it stood out as the perfect photo to express how our world feels today.  I love what the artist did with it!  Using it as the background was brilliant, and I love all of the paints, elements, art marks and artsy edges she used to turn the photo into a layout.  That title work is fabulous!  It’s a layout that speaks volumes.  Wonderful!

That’s it for today.  I hope you enjoyed my picks.  Click on the layout if you love it, and go leave the artist some lovin’.  Until next time!!
