Hello December – the month of cold days and long nights for the Northern hemisphere. But I do hope these GSO picks warm your heart and spark your creativity!
Wonder by Ajm
First up is an art journal layout beautifully executed in a scrapbook style. I am drawn into the dark circle placed on top of the lighter paper. The red totally pops from the layout but is well balanced. Into my scraplift folder this goes!
Reality bites by Margje
Margje is a master blender. In Reality Bites, the photo, elements and digital paints weave in and out of one another creating a singular, cohesive piece. The tones are soothing, yet the overall piece has grit and determination – an interesting juxtaposition. I love the graphic-gritty look to this one!
Christmas Tags by Kate
Oh wow! How cute are these personalized tags? When I see such wonderful hybrid projects, it makes me want to go out and buy a printer. Each tag with the whimsical character or decoration is expertly crafted and adorned with a little extra bling. Bravo! I’d love to have one of these tags on my gift.
Stockings by ChristyHC
Stockings by Christy is merry and bright! The horizontal flow with coordinating cluster on the lower portion is one of my favorite design compositions. Look at all those adorable elements, like the big butt Santa on top – and the scale that draws you in for a closer look into all the details…this layout is not naughty at all. Its very NICE!
Christmas Magic by Cutiejo1
Christmas Magic by CutieJo1 is such a pretty layout. The use of tags with the bells and star is fantastic. The soft yellow background paper is warm and inviting. I am also a fan of the curled tag and the lift, through shadows, on the photo. What a magical Christmas layout! I love this season!
Biltmore Grounds by Kim517
Speaking of magic…Kim shared her magical adventure to Biltmore with us. What a lovely pocket styled layout with equally beautiful photographs of a summer adventure. Be sure to zoom in closer to read Kim’s journaling.
