Good morning! I’m sure many of you are coming down from Digital Scrapbooking Day though I know it’s continuing on some sites. I’m not certain if it’s because of the extra challenges but the galleries were really busting today with gorgeous projects. It’s Beatrice on the blog and here are my Monday picks.

Technique Challenge | DSD 2020 by marijke

The framing on this page is super.  The horizontal flow supports the framing and I like the combination of color with black and white photos, which was actually the challenge mentioned in the layout title. Attaching the letters in the title draws the eye there and the heart brush finishes things off in just the right way.

The wood paper is the ideal background for this page. I really like all the themed elements and the photos are so sweet. The clusters are so pretty and expertly shadowed. This layout again demonstrates a clever use of frames, both in type and size.

The emphasis on this page is on the adorable photo. The artist has created a frame using the sketchy circle and by placing the embellishments directly on top. I like the blended paper pieces on the background as well as the sketched, paper filled hexagons. The paper strips on top and bottom frame things nicely.

The vertical design on this page is perfect for the stacked and clipped photo. The stacked and angled papers work to support the gorgeous cluster. The title and journaling a placed exactly right to move the eye across the page and focus on the adorable photo.

This layout uses one of my favorite techniques, a large photo serving as the background. The grid atop the photo is so unique and the brushwork is amazing. The page is full of texture and the horizontal strip of paper and embellishments across the bottom is a polished final touch

The masking on this page is just right for the sweet, puppy photos. I like the texture of the background paper, both in the gesso and the bit of kraft paper on the edge. The few embellishments were all that was needed, and the font chosen for the title enhances the subject matter of the page.

I’ve reached the end of my post and now it’s time for me to do some scrapping of my own since I have a project to complete. I hope you have been inspired and as always I ask you to leave some love for these talented layout artists. Thanks and have a creative week!
