It’s Friday… the sun is shining… and I don’t know about you but I’m ready for the weekend! I have 4 working days left before I hand in my work uniform and move onto the next phase of my life… one that will allow me to spend much more time with my family and on my hobbies! It all seems a little surreal at the moment but when I look in the galleries, man, I want to be creating like you all!
Kicking off my post today is Handle with Care by chigirl. Oh my. Have you ever seen such cuteness?! I love how everything on this page is centred around the vertical strip and the patterned paper choices are just gorgeous! A nice balanced colour palette and gentle shadowing in all the right places make this page a real eye-catcher!
Now I don’t know if I’m mistaken but I’m pretty sure Heart Grid Layout by Paigetaylorevans is a ‘paper’ page. Please correct me if I’m wrong. Either way, I love the detail of all those hearts, the soft tones and the grid design. Again, a great mix of patterned paper and a perfect amount of stitching. Wonderful!
I love seeing double page spreads in the gallery and January 2022 Summary Page 1 by digigrandma is a wonderful example. Perfect use of a template here – I love to see how people make them their own. I love this one in particular because of the book effect and if like me, you want to see more, you can check out page two here. An amazing duo!
Another great use of a template is Bun in the Oven by nana_vg. Teal and peach always work well together on a page and I love how the florals add to the feminine topic. A ‘progress’ page is always good to document facts and the journaling here is going to be a real treat to read in future years. Priceless!
Of course, we’re in February so there are lots of pages with hearts in the galleries! Precious Memories by cfile captured my attention with the gorgeous black and white photo’s that are circled by a flurry of layered hearts and stitches. I love the addition of the sequins… such a pretty page!
This post wouldn’t be mine if it didn’t showcase a mixed media page… man, I love Art is Everywhere by ajm. Great design, gorgeous texture, a smattering of elements and an intriguing image captivate me! I’d love to have creativity like this, it’s just awesome!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my picks as much as I’ve enjoyed bringing them to you. When you get a moment, please click on the links above and leave the artist a comment or two, I know they really appreciate it. Till next time, take care and I’ll see you in the galleries!
