Welcome to July! If you are based in the USA, I wish you a Happy 4th of July and hope you have a fun weekend planned.. I know I do!
I really enjoyed my browse through the galleries last night, as always SO much to choose from!
Cherylndesigns – Kindhearted
I am SO not good at pocket pages, I keep trying though. I LOVE everything about this, it is just so lovely. The art journal feel to it and the amazing shadow work, just make it feel so alive. The colour palette totally suits the message of being kind and inclusive, it has a warm, friendly and relaxed air. Just stunning!
Roxana – Travel The World
I love planes, but I hate to fly and I just LOVE the angle of this photo and the fact that there is no destination, you could be going anywhere. The paint, little cluster and little paper pieces are perfect and add additional pops of colour and detail. It makes me want to go somewhere (fortunately I am soon..).
Saar – Sunkissed
I am a big fan of Sarah’s – her cluster work is always amazing and her shadows are swoon worthy. I love her clusters here, so pretty and all the cute, fun little summer elements tucked into them. I really like the gradient background, feels like summer. The colour palette just screams sunkissed and I love the happy photos. It’s just gorgeous and I can’t stop looking at it.
Romajo – These are The Moments
I have a weakness for dark backgrounds and this one is wonderful, so full of texture that it makes everything on it just pop. The big white frame and the happy photo are wonderful. The paint, sequins, glitter and messy marks just add to the feel of texture on the page. I love that she tucked a little camera in behind the flower. It’s just all so happy and carefree.
Sylvia – Tech You So Much
Seeing Sylvia’s layouts always make me happy, they are so clean. I love the theme of this page and the detailed photos. The grid background makes the whole page clean but adds an elegant tech element. The broken paper piece/frame is cool and I love how the photos are layered in behind it.
Tiffany Bodily – Summer Story
This is so soft and makes me feel at peace, as if I were on the beach shown. The limited elements are used for maximum impact and I love the little cluster with the flower and the word art centre. The paint and scatter anchor everything perfectly. The colour palette is wonderful and I think a bit unusual for a Summer page, which I really like.
I hope you find some time over this holiday weekend to show these talented scrappers some love and visit the galleries. I won’t be back until August, as I am finally – after 18 months, going back to London to see my family – there will be a lot of hugs, tears and laughter (and selfies!) – I can’t wait. Thanks for joining me and Happy 4th.
