Hello Digi Friends!!! It’s the first week of December, and boy am I seeing the most beautiful layouts and memories in the galleries!! It’s going to be hard to settle on just 6 of them!! This is my most favorite time of the year, and I love all the happy Christmas layouts I see around! I know everyone’s busy, so I’ll keep my intro short!! Let’s dive in!
This page most certainly glows along with Alex, the beautiful subject of the layout! I love the inventive way Carol uses the palette strips, and the wonderfully eclectic pieces of paper all around! The photo is perfect and the color choices are superb!
I was pulled into this page because of the vintage photo, and I was so happy to see that the story of Annie was in the credits! The blending on this page is amazing, and I think that the touches of gold just accent this beautiful page so wonderfully!
The light in this photo reminds me of a Thomas Kincade painting! The sparse elements allow the photo to shine, and the quote is so true about Christmas! I love the brush work and splashes of paint, and the ghosted bells and foliage are perfectly placed!
You caught me – again entranced by the birds! You’d think I was an ornithologist or something!!! I just love the way Rae framed the birds in the wooden frames, but then the brushwork and paint behind them are just top-notch and perfectly placed! The clusters are perfectly shadowed as well!
I know not everyone enjoys the holidays, so this page was perfect for those times when you don’t feel so jolly. I know those feelings as my Mom died on Christmas Day. Sometimes it’s hard to be happy. She did a great job of making this sad fact beautiful though! I love the juxtaposition of the large and small fonts for the title, and her cluster is so beautiful. Her font choice for journaling makes it feel like an artsy part of the page! Hugs to all who find the season hard!
Have you ever seen a more beautiful Christmas layout? The ghosted Santa looks like he’s hugging the sweet little child. Using the bell as a photo mask is brilliant! I love the tree and the reindeer coming out of it, and the way she varied the font size, spacing, and leading to make a wonderfully artsy page!
Well, that’s it for me today! I hope you enjoyed your stay with me and please do leave these ladies some wonderful comments on their pages. It means a lot.
Have a safe and wonderful holiday season!
