Hello and happy Monday. It’s gloomy and rainy here in Michigan so an excellent, fall day to wander through the galleries seeking inspiration for the crafting community. It’s Beatrice on the blog and here are my picks for today.
This is such a pretty page. The large masked photo is perfectly balanced with the cluster and leaf brush placed behind. The sentiment strips are cleverly replicated by the paint-backed words. The scribbles and paint complete the layout exactly right.
This page has an amazing number of embellishments yet manages to remain uncluttered. The paper strips on the top and bottom edges are the ideal framework. Keeping the main background white adds to the clean look of the layout. The paint and wire combined with the clusters create a fantastic vertical design. I like the dotted pencil lines and the way they are placed on top of the cluster instead of behind.
This artist has created some outstanding hybrid pages. Here is a link to her gallery where you can get a closer look.: Gallery The way she has included a number of digital designs is so creative. Of course, a big part of hybrid scrapping is presentation and she has done it perfectly here.
The contrast of the relative chaos of the house photo with the calm of the pair of cocktails makes for an interesting subject. I like the way the stitching frames the drinks and the way the leaves add a touch of color to the layout. The scattered title-work mimics the theme of the page.
Photo-focus layouts always appeal to me. I like the small white framing and the way the gold in the papers and elements contrasts with the color of the moose. The photos are outstanding and the elements are carefully placed in the appealing triangular formation.
This page is what digital scrapping is all about. The extraction is amazing and the sketchy treatment for just half the subject adds a lot of movement and creativity to the layout. The papers are bold and bright and balanced by the title and brushwork opposite. This is also a great boyish page with not a flower in sight. I love everything about this layout from the partial black framing to the masking of the flooring.
Well it’s happened and I’ve come to the end of my post Please take just a minute to click through the links and leave these well deserving artists some love. Thanks and have a great week.
