My husband had one of my pages from a good while ago pop up on his FB memories the other day and he commented on how much my scrapping style has changed over the years. Not only was I pleased to note that he does actually notice my pages when I post them but that yes, my scrapping style has changed! From quite a vintage look to more of a “clean lines” look. But the one thing that hasn’t changed for me is layers… I love layers… and lots of them. What is your style? Has it changed? Is there a style that you aspire to? I’d love to be more artsy but I’m just not sure that’s how my brain works! Instead, I get my fix in the galleries. Here’s some fine pieces of work that I admire so much!
Live Wild Free by Ann060606 is so striking with its riot of colour making it hard to miss in the gallery. Of course, the topic of the page is all about exactly that – bold use of colour. Just glorious!
Lightness by beaute is the opposite end of the scale with its soft pink tones. The photo is beautifully framed while the little floral and butterfly cluster adds subtle decoration and the word art provides super contrast. So pretty!
bluedraft52 has done some great photo treatment on his page entitled Krista 2009. I love how the colours pop against the darker, four quadrant backdrop and the floral clusters balance the page perfectly. A fine piece of art!
Summer Sunset by Romajo is a great design with its visual triangles, the mixed media detail on the left, right and at the bottom, and the little button detail. The image is nicely framed and anchored with pretty elements that add further interest to the page and I love the wordart/alpha title. Gorgeous!
iTunes 02/23 by OKate is close to my heart and the “airmail” border and postmarks remind me of all the letters my sister and I used to send each other while I lived overseas quite some moons ago! A beautiful photo, beautiful masking, great title work and a little journaling all make for a splendid page. Fabulous!
Sisters and Friends by Jill is so full of fun with all the delicious layers and detail, from the pretty little blue bow on top right down to the heart embossed, ombre backing paper. Again, lots of colour bring this page to life and I love how girly it is. Amazing!
I hope you’ve enjoyed the art I’ve brought to you today and that you’re inspired to scrap a page or too of your own. When you have a moment, click on the links above and leave a comment or two for the artists, it will be so appreciated. Till next time, take care and happy scrapping!
