Hi, sorry I am a bit late today. I have been prepping for my trip home to London next week.
Christmas has exploded in my craftroom lol.
Surfing the galleries gave me a nice break from that chaos..
Keepscrappin – Deck the Halls
I absolutely love the bright candy colours used here. The cluster is amazing, I love the limited colour palette, it makes the flowers pop. Even though the cluster is large and central, the gorgeous photo still shines. I love the little peek of twine throughout the cluster. I am a sucker for twine.
Alinalove – Found Here
WOW!! This is stunning. Another limited colour palette, that works really well. I love that it picks up all the colours in the photo. The paint/brushwork behind the photo is wonderful and really anchors everything. The giant bow has me swooning.
Cfile – Up on the Mountain
I love everything about this page by Christa! It is gorgeous. The layers under the photo are composed of mainly neutral colours, so it all lifts off of the darker background. To me, the background looks a bit like a frosted windshield. I really love seeing alphas used as part of a title, it is done so well here.
sucali – Make it Happen
I think I might have a thing for limited colour palette use today! Another fabulous example of it here. I love the use of the same photo too and the muted tones of them. The paint and the tiny little converse cluster anchor the images so well. The large scribble is such a nice touch, leading your eye to the main sentiment of the page.
Dady – Good Day
The blending here just blew me away! The colour alteration of the photo and the blending it into the frame and the paper is just so very creative and gives a stunning focal point to the page. Teeny tiny pops of colour add a bit more interest, as do the carefully placed word arts. Again a limited colour palette used so effectively.
Armygrl – Memories Past
Our very own Lisa! I could not pass this by! It is such a stunning Day 1 page for DYD. I love the tight central layering here and the huge 1 is perfection. The big red banner gives it all a nice anchor point. I really like the mix of twine and ribbon in the bow that secures the journaling strip. And last but not least, the photo of Lisa and Maggie is so cute.
I hope you will go and leave these talented scrappers some love. I am heading back to my Christmas chaos. See you in a few weeks (maybe from London!!).
