Hope you are having a good weekend, a bit of a later post for me today, but this week has been so busy. I haven’t had a chance to explore the galleries fully. I did that this morning and it was so nice to just take a moment to appreciate all the beautiful pages out there.
Mom2jackaia – Autumn is in The Air
I love the big bold patterned paper used here and the created pocket of white space that draws the eye towards the photo. I’m drooling over the two gorgeous clusters, full of little elements and flowers. This bright, fall-inspired page is simply stunning, and using a b&w photo just makes it stand out against the bright colours.
SanVHM – Fabulous View
What’s not to love about this fabulous page! The way that the photo has been blended into the paper really makes me feel like it’s actually just a giant photo. I really love the messy marks and threads and the simple frame that pulls it all together. The wordart is totally appropriate and I agree it is all just fabulous. I love it when digital pages feel like paper / physical art journals.
iScrap – Write your own Narrative
This just leapt out at me. The gorgeous rich colours are just so eye-catching and that ‘dreamcatcher’ with the photo nestling in it, is perfection, especially with all the little paper pieces woven into it, so clever. I like the paper repetition throughout the page, it brings it all together nicely. I am a big fan of paper stacking and different edging. Jen has really shown how impactful stacking and edging can be, using them slightly differently, so they are not fully uniform. Both the clusters are wonderful and I like the little elements tucked into them (stars, arrows, etc,). I am such a sucker for gold, so the use of gold throughout this page made me very happy.
Tinci – Green Thumb
I miss having access to a garden, so I love pages like this one that celebrate the joys of getting outside and playing in the dirt. This beautiful page caught my eye because of the wonderful cluster work, loving how that flourish/thread is woven through the flowers and the bow. The lovely soft colour palette is perfect for the topic and the green in the leaves adds a bolder colour, helping the softer flowers pop. I am always a fan of a giant title that is perfectly anchored like this one here.
alannabanana – Rise & Shine
This photo is amazing, the cheeky look on her face! I love it. As you probably know by now I can’t resist a dark background. This one is wonderful, with a teeny bit of texture to give it a lift and it just makes all the brighter elements pop. I like that the clusters are small, but have bigger flowers in them, this is a really nice touch, they are dominant, but not overpowering. As ever I love that there are different elements tucked into the papers and around the clusters, mixing it all up and fitting the theme of ‘rise & shine’.
AmaneseFe – Zeus
Now I don’t know Zeus personally, but in this photo, he looks adorable and like butter wouldn’t melt, not at all ‘bad to the bone’ LOL. I love absolutely everything about this page, the grungy painty feel, the awesome b&w photo, the layering of the papers with the addition of a clever doodle that highlights ‘best friend’, stapling the frame to these gorgeous layers adds another nice detail. And of course, the beautiful clusters – the flower one with the hydrant made me laugh – the way that the title has been created, it feels like a second cluster to me, so wonderfully clever and fun.
I hope you enjoyed these wonderful pages as much I as did. Please leave them some love if you have some time. Have a wonderful weekend, browsing the galleries and scrapping. See you soon.
