We continue to experience warmer than usual weather in southeast Michigan and it’s nice to be able to take a walk without bundling up. I’m just now back and enjoyed looking through the galleries for inspiration to share. It’s Beatrice on the blog and here are my picks for today.

Brighton Beach by Lindsay Jane

I know each blogger is different but for me it’s usually the photos that make me enlarge the thumbnail to take a better look. The photo used as the background for this page is unique. The brushwork and masking work perfectly to capture the focal point. The sweet cluster is balanced by the title block. The glittered border frames the page exactly right.

Always Grateful by AmaneseFe

I’m always pleased when I can feature a layout by a fellow blogger and this one by AmaneseFe (Jenny) jumped out of the gallery for me. The brushwork is startlingly lovely against the dark background. The cluster she created is the ideal foundation for her pretty photo and the photo treatment works well with her palette.

Day 1 by sterkeurs

This artist is off to a great start with her December Daily. The simple page design is so eye-catching. I like the way the red stroke coordinates with the title work and star scatter. The few embellishments including the stapled tag are all that’s needed to complete the page.


Gingerbread Cookies by Miki

I’ve seen quite a few recipe pages in the galleries lately and this one definitely caught my eye. I like the lined background paper and the stitched blocks. The number buttons are so cute and the font for the title-work is just right for the page. The addition of the photo and gingerbread cut-outs makes this a very appealing page.


Gladys and Her Sunflowers by Betty Jo

The photos showcased on this page are just gorgeous. I like the stacked frames and the large block of journaling. The story was an interesting read though it made me sad that the garden was plowed under. The tucked doilies, painted flowers and bumble bees work to enhance the page. Overall a stunning page.

Complete Disaster by amien1

Raise your hand if you can relate. I like the way the photo she chose represents the current situation. We only had a few holiday plans cancelled but things are becoming more and more difficult. I’ve even seen some shortages like what happened early on. The colorful background corresponds to the cute journal card and I like the way she represented 2020 by the numbered dots. The word strips at the bottom are the perfect ending to her story.

I’ve come to the end of my post. I hope you will click through the links and leave these well deserving artists some love, If you live in the U.S., I wish you a happy Thanksgiving whether virtual or in person. Thanks and have a great weekend.
