Hi! I hope you’re all having a great day and, if you’re in the US, that you’re managing to do something fun this Memorial Day weekend. Of course I also hope you fit in some creative scrap time this weekend as well. Obviously the talented artists I’m showcasing for you today have been busy and creative!

Dunia_RE Sweet Summer by CathQuillScrap | This layout jumped out at me right away because of the bright beautiful summer colors that work so well with the fun water photos. I love the grid design and the way she bordered the photos with the pretty patterned papers. I love the little wordart strips and the careful placement of the other elements. What a cherry summer page!

You Melt Me by Ernie88 | OOOH … what a sweet photo! I love that she’s converted the photo to black and white and that she blew it up to take up so much real estate on the page. I love the heart she overlaid over the photo and the repeating heart element clusters. Her title work is great as well with the mix of font styles. What an adorable page!

20-05_NBK-Design-Advanced-Challenge by marijke | OMG … what a fabulous page. I love the way girl is peeking out from behind the letter P. The background paper is great and I like the way the artist blended the circles into the background and added the doodley lines. I really like that quote and needless to say, the extraction is perfection. This is really a very striking page!

Paradise by AZK | Wow. What an amazing, artsy page! I love her watercolor birds of paradise flowers and the way they blend into the textured paper. I loved the doodled lines and the circles. I just noticed the touch of the printed book in the background – what a nice touch. There are so many details added in to this beautiful piece of art. It’s absolutely gorgeous!

Wonder Mom by Jheri | What a lovely page and such a sweet photo. I like how the artist repeated the photo in the two differently sized frames. I love the blended outline of stems under the painted stems and then the dimensional leaves. It’s really quite a lovely, artsy page! 

Mexico Memories by Tedasgram | This page jumped right out at me. The artist’s shadow work is total PERFECTION. It looks completely like a paper scrapped page, but we’d never be able to put a page like that in our traditional paper scrapbooks would we? They’d never shut! One of the things I love about digital is the amount of dimension and thickness we can add to our pages … and still close them. (Although it does remind me of the happiness I feel when I page through my paper scrapped books and hear the clink of metal, etc.!) I love the seashells and sand and beach sign. Fantastic page!

I hope you enjoyed my picks for you today. I’ve linked you up to the pages so if you have a moment and are inspired by one (or some!) of these pages, I’m sure the artists would appreciate it if you’d leave them some love. Have a great rest of your day!

Barbara
