Happy Saturday everyone!
My first post for July. I am loving the very summery feel of all the galleries right now. Everyone getting out there and enjoying their summers. I am enjoying my first summer in Tampa, being so close to the beach is a dream come true.
Christellevandyk – Fun in the Sun
This caught my eye because of the wonderfully oversized cluster!! I love how packed full of different kinds of foliage it is with fun elements tucked in, like the Toucan and the sun charm. I really like seeing clusters that aren’t just about the flowers. The photos are fun and the flamingo floatie outfit made me smile! Great laying of the background papers and you know I love a pattern mix! Such a really pretty summer layout.
alinalove – The Way You Are
How could you not smile and be happy if you saw this?! I love the way the painty rays mimic the rays in the photo – which is amazing. The messy, painty, element-filled cluster is stunning and anchors the photo beautifully and I am just swooning over all the details in it. I also like the idea of the more delicate cluster top right, it really finishes off this beautiful page.
Meibritt – Good Day Today
The photo of the 3 dogs on the bench, all looking at something different is priceless, so awesome to have captured this moment. I love the unexpected use of pink and the scattered sequins make me especially happy. Great layering here, with the messy threads and foliage adding even more interest. The best bit for me is the background paper, totally genius use of it with the 3’s for the 3 dogs!
dawnfarias – Shark Slides
This made me LOL when I saw it. Great use of this kit too, the Shark photo corner?! Amazing. Dawn’s journaling really made me smile, I too love a novelty shoe, and right now, everyone needs a laugh. I really love the way the papers have been stacked to represent the sea / waves and using 2 kinds of shark papers is wonderful. It’s such a simple page, but so very impactful.
tjscraps – Today
The gorgeous smile in the photo caught my eye. I love all the lovely neutral layers here, wonderfully stacked and the small cluster with the word strip is perfect – messy threads tucked in to clusters are another weakness of mine. The whole page has a wonderful neutral feel with just pops of colour from the oranges and the photo. Stunning work.
Marnel – Bed
WOW!! How gorgeous is this?! The amazing clusters, so rich in colour and fullness. I love the circle stitching, creating a really lovely frame for all the sequin scatters and the clusters. And if that is not enough, there is the wonderful stack of papers and the 2 rows of papers that if you look closely are houses! Let’s not forget the gorgeous b&w selfies. I love every single thing about this page and I can’t stop looking at it.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my picks and will go and show these talented scrappers some love.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll see you soon.
