Finger Pointing – April 12th

My post today is all about happiness. At times in our life, it can be elusive and you must search for it. The artists highlighted today have found it in the little things and captured it beautifully and meaningfully.

Everyday Bliss by Lor

I love the hippie/boho look to this page. The image is captivating and delightful and Lor has scrapped it perfectly. The title work is big and beautiful but does not overpower the image. I like the line of journaling on the vellum and how the big flower draws your eye to all that is important. Well done! 


Home by Caapmum

This page captures pure joy. The texture is fabulous and I love how the shadowing makes it pop. A true work of art! 


Sunshine in your Eyes by clindoeil

The title describes this page perfectly. The young girl’s eyes are shining and the small pops of yellow add more sunshine. The masking and shadowing (especially on the butterflies) are masterful. Lovely!


You Say by tiffany scraps

The unique composition helps to illustrate the uniqueness of teenagers. The artist has captured the spirit of the 2 young ladies wonderfully. A super-cute and dynamic page. 


Smile by Nath

Another gorgeous smile!  The flowers add more happiness and the pop of green grabs your attention. I love the details on this page; especially the sequins. The artist did a wonderful job of layering the papers, elements, and brushwork. 


Open Book by jirsev

What a joyful photo cluster!  I just love the depth the artist created with her shadows and stacking of elements. An impressive design that is full of delicate color and embellishments, but the photo still takes center stage. Everything comes together splendidly. 





Finger Pointing – April 3rd

Hello! I hope your April is off to a good start. I love sharing sharing pages with you, and I hope my picks for today evoke either a sigh or a smile from you.

In Between by Sanie

Such a fresh and creative composition! I love the primary colors, circle frame, diagonal composition and all the paint and sprinkles. Super fun and super cute. 


On the Trail by Shannamay

This is such a sunny and carefree page. The excellent shadowing, burning and dodging give the page a realistic feel and the colors are perfect for a boy. The visual triangle of brown buttons finish if off hansomely.


Precious Moments by conniemiles

The perspective on the images is delightful; especially when you read the journaling. The artist captures this stage in a toddler’s life wonderfully. Her clusters are stunning, and I love the sparkle of the glitter border.


Escape by Deeka

I love pink and orange; and when I see them together, I want to order a Pina Colada. I like the wide stripes and how the artist centered her photo and elements between them. The  paint and brushes add movement and interest.


Let’s Go! by Adryane

Stunning heritage page! Adrane’s extraction is brilliant and she has highlighted the image beautifully with the blended partial frame. The touches of lace and pink add a gorgeous dainty artsiness.


Grow with Love by gduncan

The earthy tones are a lovely backdrop for the pretty image. The subtle embellishing compliments the photo, the banner adds a dash of fun and the shadowing is masterful.








Finger Pointing – March 23rd

Spring has arrived in Minnesota and it is blooming in the galleries, too. I have found some captivating pages to celebrate the arrival of my favorite season.

Spring Here by Myla

This page made me smile. It is playful and ingenious. It reminds me of a 1950’s movie poster. I like the title work and the asymetrical composition. Super-cute!


Spring by AnikA68

This page drew me in with its softness and pretty details. I love the seemingly randomness of the elements; as if they are strewn across a desk. The blending and shadowing is exquisite and the page leaves me feeling nostalgic for simpler times.


Day by Day by Filippok

The stunning images steal the show on this page. The artist has created a lovely floral cluster to highlight the gorgeous photos and she has built the bouquet perfectly. Everything on the page draws your attention to the precious little girl – Perfection.


a Poem by Traumelfe

I think this page is titled perfectly as it is poetry to the eye. It is elegant and timeless. The photo editing is impressive and I love the color palette. Breathtaking work.


April Showers by BlackKathy

I am in love with this page! The contrasting fonts in the title, colorful sketch technique, whimsical embellishing, and quirky border are all such fun and come together to make a fanciful standout.


Bunny Love by Mother Bear

I love the soft and tender feeling this page evokes. It is superbly built with gorgeous layers and clustering. Every time look at it I see another charming detail. Captivating.

Finger Pointing – March 13th

Drizzling and foggy here today but I found lots of sunshine in the gallery so without further ado…..

Girls in Red by Marleen

Marleen has created a striking page with lovely painted images. It is rich in its simplicity and alive with color. Artistic and intriging. 



Sprout by Sucali

A charming spring layout that draws you in with the contrast between the over-sized painted flowers and the delicate image. Brilliant shadow work and a lovely composition, too. 


Hello Us by bessysue581

This artist has shown a masterful use of embellishments to create a happy family page. I love the buttons on the doodled flowers and how she hung the photo with string and tape. The crinkled paper and shadowing give the page a realistic and fresh look. 


Failure21 by KarliMarie

Such a strking page with a thoughtful message. I love how the artist has added a touch of color to her page with bokeh and paint. Her extraction is first-rate and she has added the perfect amount of embellishments to frame the page. Unique and powerful. 


Say Cheese by Biancka

The artist has built this page beautifully, layer by layer, with the photos taking center stage. I like the bold striped background and the colorful floral clusters. Priceless.


Just for Me by Pacina

I love the etheral quality of this page. The colors are soft, dreamy and oh-so-gorgous. I like how the cut-out butterflies and the other elements flow off the page and the artist’s shadowing is first-rate. Beautifully crafted.

January by Anne PC

Such a pretty series of photos and the artist has scrapped them perfectly. I like the patterned triangles and paper strips behind the photos and the dainty elements. Beautifully constructed!


Skydiving by bcgal00

This page packs a punch and screams adventure! I love how the elements are “flying” with the skydiver. So creative! The framing of the daring skydiver keeps our attention on her and the shadow work is top-notch. Refreshing!


Making our Move by Katie Pertiet

This page is ingenious and engaging. The moment I saw it, I knew I wanted to lift it. The watery map effect is cool, and I love the string and pins with the van traveling across the layout. The journaling aligned along the curve of the map finishes the page off splendidly. Fabulous!


Passion by chigirl

This art journal page caught my eye because of the dimension the artist added with the taped paper pieces and word strips. Her shadowing is fantastic, too. I like how the turquoise paint highlights the image. Stylish and modern!


Finger Pointing – February 6th

Hello! Deborah here with six brilliant pages to showcase. I hope your day is going well. We are experiencing the second day of our two-day snow event in Minnesota so it was nice to find a bit of sunshine in the galleries.

Today by Chaos Lounge

The artist has so much to do and we have so much to see and discover in this charming page. There are so many cute details! I love the color combination and the background paper that supports the theme. Adorable photos finish the page off fabulously and give us our first standout.


Feb 5 by Seniorgal

So fresh and colorful! I love the pieced-together, collage look to this. The doodles give a hand-made feel to the layout and everything comes together fabulously to create a page full of joy and sweetness.


I Love You by Dady

I fell in love with this page the moment I saw it. I love the softness and simplicity, and that photo melts my heart. The shadow work is fabulous as the photo seems to lift off the page and it adds to the dreaminess of it all. Lovely!


My Son, My Hijo by Adrianita

Another heart-melting page! A striking composition, wonderful photos, gorgeous color, and a first-rate cluster…What more could you ask for? The captivating journaling tops off what is, in my book, a flawless page. Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy!


Dear Beach by Hillary

This made me laugh when I saw it as I am seriously tired of the cold and snow. A super-cute page with a unique composition. I like how the cluster in the corner draws you into the page and then you are delighted with what follows. The black and white photos complete the layout fabulously. LOVE!


Thelma had a Traveling Heart by bcazzell

I love this page and its perfect title. The double exposure and blending are exceptionally well done. It’s gorgeously crafted! The artist has captured Thelma’s adventurous personality so well. I think this is one of my all-time favorite pages. Stunning!







Finger Pointing – January 23rd

Hello and happy Wednesday. It’s a bitter cold January day so it is a perfect time to browse the galleries and be awed by all the amazing talent. Here are my favorites for today.

Ballerina by Debby Todd

Such a lovely image and the vintage coloring is fabulous. No embellishments are needed as the photo and the title say it all. Sensual and classy.


Days of December by Arte_Banale

Another exquisitely blended page. The framing and newsprint background are equally unique and the pops of red finish off the page perfectly. Beautifully crafted!


Maddy Snow Angel by bkasko

Such pretty colors and composition. The minty green is not a color you would expect on a winter page and that adds to the charm. I like how the snowflake embellishments draw your eye across the page. Winter is long but this layout shows how lovely it can be.


Moc07 January 21: Using Numbers to Playfully Present a List by mummyd

This striking page popped out at me right away with its cool sketch effect. Journaling on the arrows is a cute touch and so are the whimsical numbers. The paint splatters add just a bit of color and give the page an even more modish feel. Love this.


The future is Yours by Stuekers

This page pure magic. I love the ethereal wings the artist has created. The light in the photo and the brushwork add to the magical beauty of this layout. I am sure her daughter loves this treasure and will want it hung in her room. Enchanting.

Snow Day by Kabrak1207

The design this template offers is stunning and the artist used it wonderfully. The frame is filled with charm, from the papers to the snowflake clusters. The buttons lead us through the page and our eyes can’t stray very far from the stunning photo. Winter at its most beautiful.
