Hi everyone and happy Friday!
I have had the most amazing week. I have been off work and thanks to my employers and their long service gift, Hubby and I have been sunning and pampering ourselves in Sarasota.
I had a great time this morning catching up with the galleries, such an enjoyable way to start my day.
mcurtt – Love Life Art Doll
I love Marilyn’s style, she is one of my digi crushes. As a physical art journaler, I am always blown away by how her digital work feels like paper. I love the monochrome feel to this piece with the pops of orange scattered around, breathing some colour into the page. Her layering is just perfect and the mix of textures is especially nice.
Ajm – Happy Place
AJM – another one of my craft crushes.. I instinctively knew this was hers. It leapt out at me because the house element and the house photo are almost identical LOL! I love that. The messy background/paint is totally stilled by the calm of the photo and the anchoring leaves and flowers. It’s just so clever and the white space around it in an almost V shape just draws your eye to all the wonderful detail in the middle of the page.
Neverland Scraps – Trick or Treat
I mean!!! This is just fabulous, the exploding, flowing cluster and the giant title just made me do a happy dance. I love the mix of patterns, elements and colours here, popping off of the dark background. With that wonderful streak of purple through the middle. I just love it all and most of all I love the moody black and white costume photo, it just works so well with all the colour surrounding it. I keep finding new details each time I look at it, like the eyeball paper!!
Laura O’Donnell – Thankful for You
This is so elegant. Laura’s shadow work is wonderful here. I love the sweet photos and the sentiment behind the page. The torn paper piece is perfect and adds a really nice detail to the page. The limited colour palette and embellishment make the photos the hero and I really like that.
AmaneseFe – A Taste of Summer
You know how I love a pattern mix and this is just such a great way to do that. Little peeks of the fun patterns in the banners, tags, and paper pieces. Gorgeous! I love the bright, happy Summer feel to the page, if this isn’t what Summer is about then I don’t know what is. I really love the border around the page, adding a bit more detail and feeling like water from that slip ‘n’ slide!
Saskia Veldhoen – My Princess and I
Another great example of an almost monochrome page. All the pinks, tempered with the touches of black. And again, I am swooning over the perfect pattern mixing. I really love the photostrip style Saskia has used for her photos and that she added a fun sticker in the middle of them. The flow of the twine, makes me follow the photos from end to end. And the finishing touch for me is the black stamp, adding just a teeny bit of detail to the background paper.
Thank you for joining me this time, I hope you find some time to show these talented scrappers some love. Have a wonderful weekend everyone, I’ll be at my desk scrapping and doing more gallery nosing!
