Welcome to the first Gallery Standouts of 2014. From all of us at GSO, Happy New Year! From the looks of the galleries, the talented people of digiland have recommitted themselves to make beautiful art this year. So, let’s get to the picks…
madness by Keely~B
Scrapping teenagers can be tricky, but this layout nails it with fun colors and a freestyle design. I especially love the different patterns and paints used as they add to the high-impact of the layout. This is also a great tongue-in-cheek approach to documenting the moodiness of the age group! Well done!
You Shine by alahnasmommy
This is packed with joy and so many creative details. The palette of the page really energizes it because the red background pops with the other primary colors. The layering is well done and detailed, but doesn’t take away from the darling photos. Super scrap here!
Sunset by the Shore by caapmun
Maybe it’s the below zero temperatures and the snow, but summer at the shore sounds awfully good today! The golden warmth shines forth from this page. I love the gorgeous photo that wisely stands as the strong focal point of the page. Beautiful!
One Year Older by CindyS
I am a long-time fan of Cindy’s pages. I love how she can pack them so full of gorgeous layers and element work while still maintaining cohesive storytelling. Just awesome!
Good Times by LilisMother
This layout has wonderful artistic flair. The stamping and brushwork in the background is a fantastic anchor that moves your eye through the page. I also really like the playfulness of the circular crop and matting of the photo. Such a fun layout!
Good Stuff by Tiff
I love the crisp, graphic design here. The play of the photos against the patterns is masterful, especially with the added pop of the white frames. I love the eclectic design sense here- just fabulous!
