Hello!!! Hope everyone is doing as well as humanly possible and starting to enjoy the weekend! We are here (as usual) dealing with some health issues, some complicated financial ones, with everything not just going up on prices but disappearing from the shelves, at least here in the UK…. but lets leave the troubles behind, and I do so with one of the most amazing, effective pain relief therapies I have: enjoying and getting inspired by all of your creativity…. as always, it is also difficult to get to a minimum amount of pages, but better I stop talking and share with you these gems!!!
Starting with always awesome EllenT’s Be Cool, a fabulous minimalist fun, gorgeous, vibrant perfection….! I have to admit I am torn with the pages she posted today, not an easy task to pick just one, but you can go look at her gallery, inspiration for every style!!!
Another marvel with Flowers Lift the Spirit by JenEm, the beauty of those flowers captured in amazing photography, an awesome composition with some delightful layering, the blending in the background and oh my…those shadows!!!!!!! Perfection all over!!!!!
My jaw dropped and am still amazed with the incredible gorgeous composition in Simple Pleasures 2022 by Aerobigir! SO so amazingly creative! all the work displayed here is awesome: the blend, the cutting of the sections and the layered bits, all made into perfection with the strong shadows and, of course…a photo that speaks a thousand words… most definitely stands out!!!!
Another fabulous photo placed in a gorgeous composition, this one appeals to my soul as I know that feeling, had it many years when moving from the tropics to England… Summer, Are You There? by Kim B (Jak) is so very beautiful, starting with the photo capture that tells the story to perfection, then colors that seem to be calling it in, the impact of that electric blue with the yellows, the different textures and the circles ….all over awesomeness!!!
I swear I do try to find new people to be featured in our posts….but…what can I say, there are some people who just are impossible to resist!!!!! Especially in cases as prolific and talented like this … is Marilyn aka mcurt with One Strange Summer. The cute cutouts of themselves in the photo turned into stickers marvellously, all those collors that can lift my mood when paired with her talent, those tiny details (her shoes are actually an element from the kit?) every time I look up I find something new, the mixing pieces of word art and paints, crayon, all in a perfectly clean mess…..LOVE love LOVE this with all my heart!!!!!
and yet another one of these ladies, impossible to resist, another one who makes my heart sing, here is Rhonda, RJMJ with My Summer to Shine….a very, very appropriate name for her journey… it seems like finally everyone is discovering the wonderful talent of Rhonda’s creativity, that ability to share her soul, not just with the visuals but going the extra mile and sharing her creative thoughts for the page….here a fabulous explosion of color, the placement of the dream catchers to make a curve to fit the doll’s position and …well, magic indeed!!!!! I know she will keep shining beyond the summer!!!!!!!!!
Last but, of course, in no way least, a favorite of us all, I’m sure, Lisa aka ArmyGrl with True And Free. The magic is present here too, with shadows so perfect that this could be a proper travel notebook in a photo, the photography completed by the pieces of nature, the beauty of paint and doodles extending the image, the layering and, again, those shadows…. then she adds some impressive lyrics ….and all around my heart starts singing again!!!!
This is all from me today,I hope you find as much and as intense inspiration as I do here, have a great weekend!
