Happy 4th of July to all those who celebrate!  Deborrah here (a/k/a divamom96) blogging on this special day for the USA.  Today is a party day here and after 15 months of no parties, well, let’s just say things are hopping.  And they are hopping in the galleries, too.  So many delicious layouts being posted today. I kind of went over board with my selections – I just couldn’t narrow it down any further.  Let’s get right to my picks.

Summer Vibes by eve11ne

We’ll start today with this  beautiful summer layout by eve11ne.  The title and adorable sunglass elements caught my eye immediately.  I love the gorgeous soft summer colors she used, and the wonderful paper choices she made for the cutout letters.  But it’s the design which makes it a standout for m – everything flows beautifully and the whole page brings a smile to my lips.  Beautiful!

Picking this stunning layout was a no brainer.  I love the gorgeous blues she used to enhance her photo background, and all the paints, threads and other elements are perfect!  It’s mysterious (as her title tells us), soothing and vibrant all at the same time.  Fabulous!

Nothing Better Than This by Scrappy Irene

I fell in love with this layout as soon as I saw it.  The black, beige and red color palette is stunning!  This must the day for photo effects, because the gorgeous effects on this photo – soft black and white feel, masking for the Coke bottle – they draw us in and we examine the rest of the layout more closely.  I love her paints, stamps and other brushwork so much.  Just a gorgeous layout!

What a fabulously gorgeous artsy pocket page!  I aspire to this – I love making pocket pages and always try to give it an artsy feel, but it just doesn’t come together as beautifully as this one.  I love the way she layered the cards and photos, then added elements and stickers so perfectly.  And that wonderfully artsy background paper is just perfect!  As is her beautiful shadowing.  Just lovely!

Tlp-july21_journaliing-kiana by LoveItScrapIt

I haven’t seen many art journal pages lately, and this one caught my eye immediately! I love the large drawn faces and the fabulous inked hair and paint.  The journaling is amazing!  I love to read poetry, but writing?  Not my thing.  How wonderful to be able to create a beautiful visual expression of a writing passion.   Outstanding!

Made for Sunny Days by KarenDiamond

Check out this gorgeous creation!!  I absolutely love the blended beach photo amongst the paint and markings.  I would not have thought that a beach photo would work with such a painterly background, but it does!  The gesso in the background is wonderful, and that’s one beautiful flower cluster!  Beautiful job!

AnnaColor: Healthy Democracy by zlemon

And I end my blog post today with an amazing layout that pretty much says it all. Beautiful, beautiful blending of photos.  What a fabulous tribute to this special day.  Thank you for this inspiring message!  Happy 4th of July!  And Happy Scrapping!
