Happy July 5th!  I hope, if you celebrated The 4th of July, that you had a happy celebration.  We stayed home because of the extreme heat we’re experiencing but didn’t miss the fireworks displays on TV.  I’ve had a good time perusing the galleries and I’m anxious to show you my picks for today.

Iwo Jima by Felicity61

This layout really moves me because I’ve been to the Iwo Jima Monument in Washington D.C. and it’s absolutely humbling to stand on the ground and look up at this depiction of one of the most important and iconic moments in our history.  I love the close-up of one of the faces, as well as the other patriotic photographs on this wonderful page!

I just love the distressed flag in the center of this page! The blending around the edges is total perfection and makes the American flag stand out even more.  The page is completed by the white wood background and the red, white and blue elements.  Just a wonderful, patriotic page.

Summer by faerywings

I love everything about this page!  First of all, I love pocket scrapping, so that made this page really jump out of me.  I LOVE the big title “BOARDWALK” and what great summer pictures of a day spent at the beach.  There’s the perfect mix of photos, journal cards and elements to make this page complete.  This pocket page just screams “SUMMER” to me!

Strawberry-Lemonade by jagruti patel

This page also screams summer!  These absolutely yummy colors just exemplify summer to me.  The pictures are SO sweet and really stand out against the bold colors.  I love the mix of papers, too – I especially love the different polka dotted papers and all of that yummy fruit – just perfection!

I Believe by Ang

This page just intrigues me – there’s so much detail to look at and every time I look at it, I see something different.  I love the layering and the blending and the beautiful brush work.  There’s a little bit of grunge, which is always a winner for me, and I love the little twig at the bottom.  I just adore this very artsy page.

Last, but certainly not least, I HAD to pick Lisa’s Art Journaling page!  She’s one of our own bloggers and when I saw her page, I fell in love!  Her work is SO inspiring and especially if you’re a fan of Art Journaling – which I am.  This self-portrait is hauntingly beautiful and the photo effects she used are phenomenal!  All of the elements that she worked in around the photo in the center are just wonderful!  Please, keep inspiring me, Lisa!

That’s going to do it for me today – I hope you’ve enjoyed my picks.  If you can find a minute, click on the NAME of the page and leave these artists some love.

Until next time,
