Finger Pointing – June 12th

It’s the best part of the day here… after work! Looking through the online galleries definitely gives me lots of inspiration – I always want to get scrapping afterward. Speaking of inspiration, let’s get to it, shall we?
Here are my picks for today:

First up On This Day by Joansmor – I love the peaceful feel of this page. Such a relaxing feel to the photo and simply but beautifully scrapped.

Next a “busier” page but just as appealing – Newsworthy by Miki. I love the collage feel about it and the blended faces in the background. Great extraction of the central figure and the elements set the page off so well.

This page really stood out for me – “anger” by geoleoan. I love the use of the large frame and the layering of the elements behind it. I love the clusters in the various positions across the page. Love the wordart sentiment too.

Another that really appealed to me – this one from Oldenmeade. I love the great masking and blending on the paper to make such a great background. I love the overall flowery feel, especially the sketchy feel to the flowers once they escape the frame. Just beautiful.

I love big picture layouts and this is a beauty – Escape To The Sea by jesskab. Great photo wonderfully showcased by the paper edges, the paper strips and all the little elements positioned just right. Stunning.

Lastly with another big picture layout – Love you by britgirl. A great scenic photo brilliantly scrapped. I love the use of the patterned paper as a mat to the photo and the simple but really effective embellishments.

Well – lot’s of inspiration for me from my tour of the galleries. I hope you like my picks for today, but how about having a bit of a look yourself? Remember to leave some love on the pages you find appealing.

Until next time – happy scrapping!!

Finger Pointing – June 2

Hi everyone!

This is Carmel, bringing you today’s gallery standouts. Nearly half of the year has gone!! – before we know it, it will be Christmas time again.
How has your weekend been so far? We have a quite one and I have spent the last little while looking through the galleries for today’s standouts.

It it always so hard to pick just six pages from the galleries as everyone’s pages are beautiful. Here are my picks for today.

First up REALLY … WHY? by Justagirl. I love the overall color and tone of this layout and the great photo work. Great blending and stamping to create the background and great choice and positioning of the elements.

Next by myssp XOXo – I love the bright happy feel to this layout. A great candid photo set of so well with the patterned and stamped background. I love all the flower elements scattered around and the lettering and wordart sets it off so well. Love it!

Now from Broomy – Just Me – a great selfie layout. I love the paint and the cluster of elements up the side and the flower cluster on the corner. A great “white-space” layout that really stands out in the gallery.

I couldn’t go past this layout from wombat146 – Living For Today. I love the background and the layered papers under the photo. Great photo work with just a few perfectly selected and placed elements make this a stunning page.

This really caught my eye City Trip by nannascrapper – I love all the painting, blending, stamping that make up that great background. I love the great masking and placement of the photos and the varied text work which sets the page off so well.

and to my last pick this stunner from SonjaS – Amalfi. I love the great photo-work on the background photo and then effect of just the part of the photo highlighted with the frame. I love the extra paint and brushwork to add to the delicate color of the whole page – again with the choice of just a few elements to highlight.

As always, thanks for taking a peek at the pages I’ve chosen. If you have time, it would be fabulous to stop by and give some love in the galleries for these layouts or any that you find beautiful or inspiring.

Until next time – happy scrapping
