It’s been an unusually warm Winter’s day here in Cape Town and we took a glorious road trip to Cape Point today. I’d forgotten how beautiful is down that way and it’s certainly a great place to soak up nature and the ocean. I’m now on baby duty for Ayla (8 week old granddaughter) for the night and so far she’s been as good as gold… so good that she’s even afforded me the time to check out the galleries so I can bring you some lovely eye candy for the day!

I love all the mixed media that makes up Wisdom by beszteri. The muted tones coordinate perfectly with the black and white image while the placing of the spectacles is perfect and adds so much interest. Terrific!

The central design of C & R 2022 by lmaggs makes for a lovely clean look and I love the comic style photo treatment. Overall, the page is nicely balanced with the pretty clusters to the left and right and the Summer colour palette is fresh. A wonderful, fun page!

Things to Try This Year by Cherylny reminds me of a “note to self” style notice board. I love all the detail, the reminders and the positive affirmations while the element mix and textures make me want to reach out and touch it… love this!

You by Dady is a page of sophistication with its repetitive paper strips of antique colours, blends and brushwork. I especially love the split-detail design while the image makes for an intriguing layout and a stunning “yesteryear” page!

Love, love, love the simplicity and colour palette of Good Vibes by Ga_L … I never underestimate the art of creating a page like this, I know many a scrapper who will confess to starting out with a simple page in mind but not being able to stop adding elements! This is just fabulous!

I’m totally in awe of Sunset by magnolia. The horizontal design and framing is perfect and I love how the image appears to span the entire page. Again, a great choice of complimentary elements are beautifully placed and I love that the couple are popping out of the camera… a gorgeous, enchanting page!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the artwork I’ve showcased and that you’re inspired to document a story or two of your own. When you get a spare moment, please click on the links above and leave a comment or two for the artists – I know they will appreciate it. Till next time, take care and happy scrapping!
