Happy Sunday my dear friends! I hope wherever you are, you are as blessed with good weather and good fortune as I am!
As I strolled through the galleries this fine afternoon, I found myself amazed at phenomenal layering and blending. Clusters were top notch! The arty blending and layering has me excited to create layouts too!
Furry Friend by LivyBug
First up is this wonderfully crafted layout by LivyBug. I am drawn into the overall design – the way the focal cluster is in a bit of a triangular shape pointing to the title. I enjoy taking in all the bits and hunting for the cats – like the cat in the box.
Flex Playlist by TrishD
Next is a work of art I just can’t get enough of! The colors and the bit of grunge are spot on for this musical layout in a graphic design style. I like the placement of the word art in an “L” shape which frame the focal splendidly.
Footprints by Cfile
Wow! You really have to take a closer look at this beauty, to see the face blended into the paper. That unexpected detail is such a delightful surprise! Combined with the soft tones and the expert photography – this layout ticks so many boxes!
Do It For You by Ana_Santos
The beautifully rendered face drew me in! I like the placement of the flower over one eye – to me, she is winking! I enjoy the flowers in many different sizes as this helps give depth to the layout. The blending of the word art into the background adds a soft touch. This is the kind of layout in which one can get delightfully lost in all the layers.
From Paris With Love by Chaos Lounge
Yes, there are phenomenal clusters here. But truthfully, it is the subtle details on the grid paper that drew me in. I like how that paper takes up only half the page – so the title stands out. I like the little paper-punched holes adding a bit of texture. I like the way that grid paper is such a wonderful backdrop to the bits of ephemeral like the Paris tag. This layout is all sorts of Ooh LaLa!

Last is a layout by one of my all-time favorite layout artists – Marnel. I am always blown away by her attention to detail. Her layouts pack a lot of punch! Hot mess? Never! This layout is full of style and pizzaz from the arty background to the use of tags and the heaps of flowers. Nothing but gorgeousness here!
Till next time my dear friends! Happy crafting and creating!
