Only a few more days left until Spring arrives in Michigan and I can hardly wait. I think this mindset may just be reflected in my picks for today. I realized this after the fact but I’m definitely not surprised. It’s Beatrice on the blog and here are my picks for today.
I really like this style of page including the simple angled and rectangular template spots. It makes for both a photo focus and storytelling page. The template is used to its best advantage here. I enjoy the serene color combination. Only a few carefully place embellishments are needed to finish the layout. I especially like the stapled flower.
This is such a pretty page design. The vertical flow framed by several text blocks works so well for the vintage photos. The masking and clustering in the center create a bit of horizontal interest to the vertical composition.
I like the simplicity of this layout including the partial framing. I enjoyed reading the journaling which tells the story of an unusual favorite plant at least to me. I like that the artist was able to complete the page with just a few bits of text, papers and embellishments.
I suppose it wouldn’t be a post from me without showcasing at least one pet page. This one is outstanding. The circle stitching clearly points the way to the sweet photo made into more by repeating and stacking. The circle also works to support the clusters and frame the large title. (I definitely share the sentiment here.) The stapled corners and text and subtitle outside the circle complete the page in just the right way.
I like the large painted title letters in this project. The staggered stamps and text create visual interest while moving the eye over the entire layout. The scribble and paint as well as the masked papers tie everything together. The black in the word strips, ribbon and stitching provides the right touch of contrast to the bright, springy page.
If that cute face didn’t attract me to this page the photo treatment would. The soft colors are so pretty. I like the way the pattern in the fencing is duplicated by the choice of the black, striped paper. The clusters are placed in the ideal triangular formation. Such a delightful page.
I’ve reached the end of my post and as usual I ask for you to take a few minutes to leave these sell deserving artists some love. Thanks and have a warm and wonderful weekend.
