Hope you have had a fabulous weekend so far? The weekend for me is just the icing on the cake! I passed my driving test on Thursday and I am so overjoyed and have been able to run errands MYSELF this weekend! WHOOP! Anyway, back to scrapping, the galleries have been great to soothe my nerves in the run-up to my rest, just so much beauty and talent out there.
Golya – Carneval Fun
This just leapt out at me! I love the colour palette here and all the fabulous details. The torn edge revealing the pretty spotty paper is such a lovely detail and I love the use of the bauble trim (I have just started noticing these in my kits!). Great use of the paint, stitching, and doodles and I really love her shadow work. I don’t know what her journaling says, but I love the fun photos of them all dressed up, looks like they were having a lot of fun.
alinalove – Fairy Love
I just love everything about this, it is so wonderfully artsy and way out of my personal comfort zone! My fave part of this page is the abundance of word art, which has been used so cleverly. The colour palette is really muted but has pops of colour that lift off of the background. The scattered elements add so much interest and complement the word art and photo so well, yet another example of amazing shadow work.
elseepe – Gabbi
Isn’t this just gorgeous! The subject Gabbi is stunning, love all of her cute poses and the colour palette compliments her so well. I really like that some of the photos are tucked in behind the paper and others are not. And all the wonderful elements and word art tucked in around the photos is just perfect, just enough embellishment to help Gabbi shine even more. I’m transfixed by the little doodle with the flower and the paint to the right, such a great way to anchor the page.
Ruthmelody – Create Memories
The amazing title work just called to me from the gallery! I love it, I am a big fan of font, stamp, word art mixing to create a title and it is Ruth has done it so very well here. The painty splatters behind the title and underneath the cute little cluster of elements are perfect and add a fantastic pop of colour to the muted background and photo. I like it when things are anchored 🙂 and I love how the start of the title just slightly overlaps the photo, tying everything together beautifully.
Mary-11 – Mother’s Love
This is just so elegant, which is great to see with a bright colour palette – elegance doesn’t have to always be soft, muted colours. How clever is the little peek-a-boo card/paper top left, revealing the pretty floral paper. The photo is wonderful, I can really feel the love in it. The little bit of paint/brushwork under the title is perfect it completes the elegance of the page for me.
LoveitScrapit – You’re the One
Kiana’s work is always STUNNING. And this is no exception to that! I love everything about it. You know me and pattern mixing, and then pair it with unusual angles and I’m over here swooning! The stamped heart is just sending the romance of this page into overdrive. The main cluster is fabulous, all the details tucked into it and the wonderful shadow work! Everything is just popping off of the neutral background and feels so alive, I love it. I also really love that she used a neutral frame here, ensuring that the photo is the hero.
Well, that is all from me today, thank you to Sheri for taking my day yesterday, even though she was a bit under the weather. Have a fabulous weekend and President’s Day if you are off tomorrow. And please do go and show these talented scrappers some love.
