Hi there scrappers and art lovers! I’m sitting here in my porch feeling privileged that I get to share with you some of the digi goodness I’ve found in the galleries today. What a fun way to spend some time this afternoon! It feels so cozy to be warm inside listening to the cold wind howling outside and the only challenge at the moment (is it really a challenge?) is that my sweet pup just came up to me when I sat down and curled up next to me and I had to reject her laying her head on my laptop. (She really loves to do that!) It’s just too hard to type over her head. Ha! Now she’s just snuggled up really close to me and all is good and I quite possibly may not get anything else done for quite a while because I can’t bear to disturb her. Man I really love doggy snuggles! 🙂 Anyway … on to the beauties I want to share with you today…
Swan by Katell | This layout is absolutely beautiful in its simplicity. The photo stands out on its own and is accented perfectly with the simple leaf atop and the justified journaling, the simple graphic line, and a date tag. The use of white space is perfect and I love the addition of the coffee stain on the bottom with the title. Simply lovely and so very peaceful!
RE Nov Stories by CathQuillScrap | Oooh I love the angled stacks of papers leading the viewer’s eye to the lovely photo. The title work is lovely and I like the way she repeated the stitching on each side and the way she typed the date on one of the angled papers. And of course … I need to mention that she did great, realistic shadowing on the photo/paper stack! Lovely!
This Moment by cnewby | OMG. Could that photo be more sweet?! I love that she split the layout with the light and the dark and the shades of grey and black and paired it with a black and white photo. I really like the way she used a button as part of her titlework and the beautiful grungy brushwork and just now I noticed the doiley border on the left. What a wonderful loving moment captured!
Rugby by Merylbartho | OMG OMG OMG! What a fantastic layout. I love the way that adorable little boy is running out of the photos and that amazing realistic shadow work on the extracted photo. (Awesome extraction BTW!) I like the way she used a paper with clouds above the photos and the blended grass below to ground it all. What an amazing piece of art – definitely why I love digi scrapping so very much! Also … I want to mention I like that the background framed photos are all black and white and the color is saved for the large focal photo. Everything about this page is genius!
No thank you by Britgirl | This layout cracks me up. “No thank you” is EXACTLY my pup’s response when she’s heading outside and she realizes it’s raining. Suddenly going outside is not necessary in the least. 🙂 Clearly that is what these pups think too. Ha! I love the way she tucked the photo into the envelope and she repeated the umbrellas with the wood umbrella and the really pretty painted umbrella. I love the tucked in wood clouds and cloud brushwork in the background along with the varying fonts she used for all her rain quotes. I love those pouty faced pups! This layout is so very fun!
Very Merry by Mywisecrafts | This layout just makes me smile. I love the wonder in the little guy’s face as he’s gazing at Santa. I like how she separated the photo into two frames. Aren’t those doodled string lights adorable and the hanging dimensional doodled ornaments?! Her brushwork tucked behind the photos is a perfect pop of color and I love that glittery snowflake. What a beautiful Christmas layout!
Well, that’s it for me today. I hope you enjoyed my choices. It’s always a difficult choice. I wish I could share so many more layouts but I’ve got to keep it to six. A rule’s a rule, right?! Have a great day and I hope you find some time today to treat your creative side!
