Hello, everyone, and welcome! Katherine here with today’s round of GORGEOUS Standouts! It was really nice making my way through all the wonderful galleries today, such a nice distraction from all the cRaZy busy that life is right now, however, it took quite a bit of resolve but I finally managed to narrow my choices to the required six, I could have easily chosen a dozen more! Seriously, at least a dozen more! I really hope you adore my picks!
Starting us off on this beautiful summer day is this STUNNER by sucali, appropriately titled Scenic Route. The minimalistic approach here is just stunning, and soooo perfect for that incredible photo! Seriously. that. photo. The tones in it are just breathtaking! And I love the paper choices that the layout artist has selected to accent it, too! That little car is pretty adorable as well!
I really adore the delicate palette in this next Standout titled The best moment by clindoeil. The muted tones are so lovely here! And those images are absolutely delightful, the creative processing is just amazing! All the stitching provides just the right touch, too.
I kinda went head over heels for zlemons‘ Old Flames when I happened upon it in the gallery! There is just so much to like here! The design with all the circles, the gorgeous tonal palette with the pops of color, all the sketchy grungey goodness, literally everything. A girl could spend quite a bit of time looking this beauty over and find something new to feast on every single minute!
Up next is this beauty titled Dungeness by profolly. Truly, this is one of those works of art that should be hanging in a gallery somewhere, like the gallery in my living room! LOL! Seriously though. This reminds me so much of an oil painting. I LOVE the textures that the artist achieved here! The masking and blending is all pretty stellar, too!
Next I have this super adorable art journaling layout by mcurtt titled Creative. love Love LOVE that art journaling doll, she is so stinking CUTE! Love the placement of “Please Notice This,” really grabs your attention (it did mine anyway). The greens and blues are so delicious together, and that message is pure perfection … “Creativity is Intelligence Having Fun” … nothing but truth!
Wrapping up my choices today is another art journaling layout, this one by Staciahall is titled Don’t Try to Fit In. Now, while I absolutely ADORE all the creativity here, the gorgeous reds and greens with the whites and blacks, all those gorgeous brushes, it was the journaling that held me captive to this work of art. Seriously. You all need to read it. Just do it. I promise you won’t regret it. I sure didn’t. =)
And that’s a wrap for me! I really hope you’ve found inspiration in my choices! I’ll see you all in the galleries again real soon! Blessings to all of you! XO
