Finger Pointing – May 14th

Good afternoon. It’s a beautiful day here in Michigan and even better it’s almost the weekend. I always find loads of inspiration in the galleries and here are my picks for today. It’s Beatrice on the blog with some gorgeous projects to share with you.

Biking Around by Roxana

The variety of photos and crops make for a creative page. I like the way the various loopy bits reinforce the theme of “around”. The clusters are pretty and the stapled and pinned pieces add the just right finishing touches.

Scotch Broom at the Coast by dwsewbiz

I really like the way the papers peel back to reveal the stunning photos. Stretching the large photo across both sides and adding he smaller framed photos is one of my favorite design techniques. Adding a couple of elements, title work and text complete the layout expertly.

Simplette-Sensation LO by Lana 2021 by LanaBeber

The photos in this layout are adorable. I like the way the flowers move the eye around the page in a circular motion. The placement of the word art in opposite corners is spot on.


Tulips by Miki

I’m not sure if the journaling means the artist didn’t get all tulips or the deer didn’t but regardless this photo is gorgeous. The masking and striped lines are lovely and that small framed photo with the deer charm (I think I understand the reference in the journaling) is a delightful addition to the page.

May Scraplift Chain by bcgal00

I can’t seem to write a post with at least one pet page and the composition of this one is so pretty. The brushwork creates the perfect foundation for the framed photos. I especially like the bits of text including the circular title. The black and white embellishments contrast with the colorful parts of the page.

Bubble Fun 2007 by tkradke

The photos on this page are really outstanding. The black and white contrasts so well with the colorful elements. Not much is required to make this a very appealing page.

I’ve come to the end of my post and I hope you have the opportunity to click through the links and leave these well deserving artists some love. Thanks and I hope you have a fun and inspired weekend.

Finger Pointing – April 23rd

It’s nearly the weekend and the perfect time for some advance inspiration before taking time to create for myself. It’s Beatrice on the blog and here are my picks for today.

Joy in the Little Things by CathQuillScrap

This is such a pleasing design with the decreasing circles and simple clustering. These pieces create a great backdrop for the focal photo. I really like the font/word art used for the title too.


Best Life by myssp

I’m always attracted to pet pages and this one is no exception. The combination of the large photo with the smaller framed photos is lovely and I like that some of the photo spots are filled with patterned papers. The word art title is fitting for the page.


Oh Mickeys! By QuiltyMom

The photos on this page are so colorful and captivating. I like the way all the blocks point to the journaling which is a big part of this page. The placement and use of the alphas for the title-work is amazing.


Signs of Spring by musicmom3

These are such gorgeous photos. I really like the multi-photo page and the way the shots are layered to draw the eye in. I like the way the banner is placed horizontally to tie the photos together.



Stourhead by katell

The blended background on this layout is outstanding. I think it’s a combination of a masked photo with some papers. However it was made, it’s a super background for the smaller, framed photos. Only minimal embellishments are required to finish off the page.

Bright Day by Veer

This is such a sunny, happy page. I like the partial framing of the sweet photo. The cluster is perfectly shadowed and the title balances the journaling just right.

In retrospect I notice that all these layouts reflect better weather than what we’ve been experiencing here in Michigan. I can only hope. If you have even a minute please take the time to click through the links and leave these well deserving artists some love. Thanks and enjoy some creative time for yourself.
