Good evening, friends! Heidi Nicole here tonight with some inspiration from the galleries. Spring has officially sprung here in Northern Kentucky, and I am enjoying every minute. I hope you are all able to find some sunshine and blue skies right now!
My hope is that these layouts inspire you… it’s so easy to lose that creative fire when life happens, and sometimes stepping away is an absolute must… but just looking at and appreciating our friend’s artwork helps us heal and find joy. Be kind to yourself and take time for anything you need in your life. We will always be around for you to come back to.
Let’s get started!
This is a lovely white space layout with such a natural, sweet vibe. The bits of grungy ink and stamps on the background add the perfect touch of messiness, which is offset by the lovely stacked papers and elements. I love how the leaves coming out from behind the photo goes so well with the photo itself. The textures and layers are wonderfully shadowed and it comes together seamlessly!
There’s not a single thing that doesn’t inspire me in this layout. The photo makes me smile and I love the colorful paper strips that balance the photo. It makes it the perfect focal point. The grunginess in the background adds so much to look at. That skyline is fantastic! The camera elements fit perfectly with the theme… but those clouds, though! I love how they pop off the page… and they bring everything together to make a masterpiece!
I am so drawn to travel themed pages… because I want to see in person what I’m looking at in photos… and this one is no exception. The fabulous photo in this one is, well, fabulous! I’m sorry the pandemic has them stuck and they can’t travel to Toronto, but it’s so nice to scrap those dreams and future plans. The overall black and white feel is offset by those fun pops of bright color. The arrows, the word strips, and the journaling bring it all together. Loving everything about it!
The first thing that drew me to this layout is the photo clipped to the tag. What a fun, unique way to show off a photo! That background has the perfect amount of color and texture to add interest to the negative space. The use of minimal elements is a great decision, so that the awesome photo can remain the focal point. All in all, a lovely white space page!
The thing about art is that it elicits an emotional response… and this layout did just that for me. She is showcasing some of her favorite childhood books, and they are some of mine, as well. What an amazing thing to document and share from generation to generation! I love the design of the page. Displaying ten photos in a single layout is impressive… making it so streamlined and not cluttered is amazingly impressive! The icing on the cake is that awesome cluster of elements. Such a wonderful piece of art!
This is freaking awesome! What an amazing big photo layout… that photo is so perfect and so striking. I especially love the city scape line drawing. It adds so much uniqueness to the photo. The elements stay with the theme, and add depth and inspiration. There is so much to see and look at and love about this project!
That’s it for tonight, friends. Don’t forget to share the love! Be kind, be safe, seek joy <3
