Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well. I’m a bit (well, a lot, yes) late today, we have some serious health issues at home but I didn’t want to leave yesterday galleries without due praise, so, here are some gorgeous pages for your inspiration.

Remember you can get to the original galleries by clicking on the name of the page and author ( not the actual image) Please do spare a minute or two to leave some love, we all know how much of a difference it can make, always, even more so in these crazy times we are living!

2018-Alex-Dance-Recital by Iowan Not surprising that Carol makes magic here (she does always) the marvellous photo treatment, the perfection in the shadows, gorgeous cluster and absolutely amazing combination of papers, ultra awesome!

WONDR Experience by Vrielinkie. Another fabulous creative, Hannah perfectly combines papers, colors and textures here with a photo that brings smiles. The amazing deep shadows, gorgeous layering  and (once again- that word…) perfect balance with the blank space areas. Fabulous all over.

Cneflower with Sweat Bee BYOC22 by trekmom. An explosion of colors and great papers combo, gorgeous macro photo, beautiful embellishing with a few clusters, she always finds originality in any subject and love how this one turned out.

Exhale by Cherylny.  Love Cheryl’s talent to go for any subject, any style and make them shine! Here with the elegant creation which goes beyond the visual beauty with a positive message. The photo is great, almost giving a touch of surreal to the whole thing, and all the little bits and pieces united by the thread in the background, wonderful shadowing all around, love it!

Siblings by clucaswvu04. I’m a super fan of full page photo LOs, have to admit, yesterday/today the galleries were full of them, not an easy task to pick just one, but here, in this one there is such warmth, so much beauty just by the choice of photo (an amazing capture and even more so when one reads the journaling!)  the non posed images are (I think) the ones who tell the story with more intensity, and here, combined with that super gorgeous cluster mixing different textures and beautiful shadows….perfection with an amazing feeling!

Self Portrait by TraceyM. I’m sure you will recognise her as the creative hand of Clever Monkey Graphics, and as such, she is one of the most prolific scrapper/designers we have in the industry, always with a touch of originality, LOVE the big wording here, such a perfect combo with the background paper, the gorgeous composition around the photos and the sprinkled confetti, love every element coming together in a huge smile for one’s heart, brilliant all together!

I know I should be stopping here, but in my roaming the galleries, I found so much, I need to share a couple more that deserve a place in the post:

City of Many Visions by Anja_77 This is such an impressive piece, I’m not sure if the faces come ready in the product or if she added to each, but either way, the blending of everything in the page, all the detail which at first look felt a bit overwhelming, a second after it all falls into place and this is a master piece!!!! Pure Awesome!!!!!

Last but in absolutely no way least is My Good Son by Amandajk. I have known Amanda for around 10 years if I’m not mistaken, and she is always full of talent, has that marvellous gift of mixing what could be called a “traditional” layout with all the intensity of the Art Journal she shines with and this is perfection in either style! Love the big photo, the perfection of the extraction, the way she managed colors (and the absence of it) the mixture of amazing pieces composing the background…. a perfect show of her talent in this master piece!

This is all from me today, hope you find as much beauty and inspiration in these pages as we do, don’t forget to stop by their galleries (click on the name of LO and author, it will open a new tab) to give a bit of happiness that we know is always treasured! have a marvellous weekend!

  1. Thanks bunches……feeling happy. ❤️❤️❤️ Connor was sitting by me, waiting to use the computer to play Minecraft when I was working on the layout. He said that I should use a photo of Alex from “that bird dance recital”. He was spot on! So thanks to you both and for Alex who smiled so sweetly here!
    Congratulations to all who go mentioned today. .

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you Cynthia!!! I’ve just seen this and I’m beyond thrilled!! Thank you very much for including my page in today’s Gallery Standouts!!

  3. Muchisimas gracias, amiga!!!! What a big surprise! Much needed as we just had to surrender our beautiful puppy ( he’s already 40 lbs) because he is too big for our little place. He was supposed to be a Beagle but he is a Pyreene /Shepherd with a touch of Boxer. Thanks for the lift!!
