Hello everyone – it’s Carmel here. Hope you are all doing well – I can’t believe we are already over halfway through January!
I just had a quick check and it is just a year since I did my first blog post for Gallery Standouts! I find it such fun looking through the different galleries and picking some great layouts to call your attention to. It’s always so hard to pick just six, though!!
Here are my picks for today:
Linked by Love Blackkathy
Wow!! What more can I say – I love everything about this.
The masking and blending is just stunning – and a great use of the torn frame. The additional of the few small embellishments is perfect. Really wonderful.
Next from Nanascrapper
Such a great layout – I love the shadowed and cut-out effect of the shapes and the almost monochromatic feel to the layout.
The addition of the wordart and the small elements set that cute pic off perfectly.
This next from barbaraj caught my attention.
I love the photo work – just that hint of color and the rest of the page with its masking and blending compliments the soft feel so well.
Again just a few elements finish off the page wonderfully.
I really love Grandma by helenedubois
This is such a great heritage page – I adore the pic and it is set off so well with that stitched frame. I love the brushes and stamps blended and merged into the background and the simple embellishments that add to the overall theme. Stunning.
Another one that jumped out at me was Windy Day by amplantier
This is so aptly named; I can almost feel the wind blowing!!
Great masking and blending of the background to create the wind effect and I love the all-white focal point with the person. Amazing.
and lastly You Color My World by SeattleSheri – so so colorful!!
I love the circular shape with all the different papers, the various paints around the edges and all the elements highlighting the colors. Absolutely amazing, and all done without the help of a template!!
Well, that’s my six for the day – a bit of a mixed bag – hope you like them.
Why not click on the link and leave some love for these pages, or any others that catch your eye in the galleries.
Until next time – Happy Scrapping
