Hello! Happy Saturday to you.
Hope you are enjoying the start of the Labor Day weekend if you are in the US. I am getting ready to head to NYC on vacation, so I’ll be missing for a week or so.
Caapmun – Apple Pie
How can you look at this page and not want apple pie?! The photos are gorgeous and I love the quote, I agree wholeheartedly. I really like the use of the apple paper consistently throughout the page and I especially love the little piece in the top right corner. Fabulous page, really simply embellished, letting the photos shine.
mywisecrafts – Take a Leap of Faith
I had to include this page by our very own Esther. It is beyond gorgeous. The b&w photo is perfect for the very minimal, but super impactful colour palette of gold, white, and black. The two clusters are so rich and full of details – stars, flowers, foliage, word strips, and ribbon, a total feast for the eyes, and of course, as always, her shadow work is amazing. I love the unexpected use of the torn papers, it adds another layer of interest to this stunning page.
Leahblahblah – Dream It
I have long been a fan of Leah’s work. This is amazing! I love the mix of ‘real’ and drawn elements, it works so well and to me, the clusters feel happy. In fact the whole page just screams happiness, it made me smile a lot. Her shadows are perfection and I like the little butterfly paint behind everything, giving the page a really pretty anchor.
Beszteri – Hope
I was blown away by the brushwork here. I love the ‘steps’ she has created, leading you to the flowers and the simple title. So elegant and the little Hummingbird detail is perfect. The whole thing feels like a cover for a book and I would totally want to read it!
AMarie Charp – Assortis
The large cluster caught my eye. It’s just wonderful, again another great example of mixing ‘real’ and drawn elements. The happy smiling photo, made me smile, loving their almost matching shirts. I love the colour palette, not the usual summer colours, so it stands out. The little chipboard word strips are perfectly placed. A perfect summer page.
*sylvia* – So Much Fun
Another gorgeous layout from Sylvia. It looks like the girl in the photo is having a lot of fun. I love the vertical layout with the mixed stitches as a great detail that anchors the page and at the same time is a great detail. I really like the split title, I am a big fan of splitting up your title.
I hope you have enjoyed my picks today and will go and show these talented scrappers some love. I’m off to watch the F1 qualifiers, enjoy the rest of your weekend and I’ll see you in a few weeks.
