Hi everyone! Happy New Year! I hope the start to 2022 has been kind to you.
I was lucky enough to have my best friend visit from London for 10 days, so I had a great end to 2021 and a fab start to 2022.
The galleries are so fun and fresh right now, full of positivity and hope for what a new year might bring.
LivyBug – Be Bold
I love how Oliva scrapped this photo of her and her little brother. I like the grungy edging paired with the pattern mixed layers and that big trailing cluster, so jam packed with goodies. Wonderful page and the focal point really pops off of the b&w striped background.
Stasianary – A Fresh Start
I am a big fan of photoless pages, I struggle a bit with creating them myself, so I like to see them perfectly executed like this one. Being a huge stationery nerd, I love the big pencil front and centre. The abundance of layers, elements and flowers is fantastic, everything works so well together and I love the frames tucked in underneath the big cluster. A great way to mark a fresh start.
tkradtke – Carousel
This leapt out at me, because I love Carousel’s – I can’t explain it, I just do. The photo is wonderful and totally the hero of this clean and elegant layout. I love the star scatter and the blended definition of fantasy. The big title helps anchor everything and I just love all the white space.
Tiffany Scraps – Brrr
I can feel the chill in the air from Tiffany’s page! I love the colour palette here, especially the different tones of pink. I really like the trail of different snowflakes, paint and hearts, so pretty. The little word arts narrate the photo perfectly, no need for journaling here.
Mother Bear – You
I am head over heels in love with this amazing page. SO bold and fun. The giant cluster under the photo full of flowers and foilage and flairs is just amazing. All the little details of scatters, paint and sequins just add to the fun feel of the page. And using a black & white striped background paper, just makes it all pop even more.
Cindy Taylor – Beauty Through Adversity
The photo led me to have a deeper look at this wonderful age, I love that it was taken with the succulent in the frame. So the flower/succulent cluster on the left is just perfect and introduces little pops of pink into the page (did you get that I am fan of pink!). The background is perfect, with the text blended in and the mix of patterns. A great page that feels like it belongs in an art journal.
Well that is it for me today, back to super wild card NFL playoff weekend I go LOL. I hope you are inspired by these wonderful scrappers and will go and leave them some love.
