Finger Pointing – July 10th

Good day, my fellow artists!

Let’s start here!

2024-06-12_Pilot by CathQuillScrap

Wow! Such a privilege indeed! So, just everything in this artwork. The border, the plane flying with the stars set to appear as the airflow of the plane, the plane window, a piece of map and I love that font! I’ve sat here and smiled the whole time. Well done!

The Wheel by 01lousmith

Such a great punch of color – the paper and embellishments are set in tone with the photos but the photos don’t get lost. The ribbons tucked under, the dirt/paint splatters, and the well-created flower corner. The flow is perfect.

This is what I have to put up with every day by zinzilah

A true day of adventure with probably more couples than you think! But very well expressed, and pulling out the little tiny bit of blue from the photo and choosing that color to be the pops. Also, totally love the OMG button! Thank you for sharing a real piece of life.

Sick and Tired by lholuska

Can anyone else relate to the title? Maybe so, but some people have chronic illnesses. lholuska just wants to be heard and validated. Take time to read the journaling. In conjunction, I love the wheel and its balance, the heart of pills, and even though she’s taking time to express her pain and frustration she still chooses to add flowers and butterflies. I hear you and I see you.

Rainbow Girl by carollee

Could this be any sweeter? The photo treatment, the happiness that oozes, and the light but perfectly done embellishments.  Love, love, love!

My Fellas by SweetChar

To wrap up today’s post — I am very inspired by this layout. Personally, I can be more of a minimalist artist but this makes me want to push my boundaries. There’s just so much to admire. The flow, working with black and white photos, the flower clusters with the Xs and hearts (as Os). Did you see the small paper piece that is anchored by a snap over the heart? Thank you for rounding out this day!

I hope you all have a great day today, and, stop by these artists and give them some art love! Stay safe and make wise choices!  Lauren







Finger Pointing – July 8th

My oh my would you look at the time! I’m late! I’m late for a very important date!  With you!

I didn’t have to go very far to have this art jump right out at me.

The Journey – cinderella

Yes, yes, Me! I want a new adventure. Love the stacking that pulls your eye right to the top. Great color scheme and the hope of the best is yet to come. Thank you cinderella!


Catch the wave by Migueline

I love the blending and the orange and blue. And the arrows across the bottom? Very clever indeed.


Dear Stress – Let’s Break Up by gina

gina said it for me, too. The photo that’s pieced together giving the image a fractured appearance. The black and white with the pops of color. Again, drop shadows on black are very challenging! Well done gina!

nsd 24 chall rock by ad77

Love the simple top white space and then the punches of color and paint on the bottom. Orange combined with pink is a very nice match. Peace out ad77!


The Thinker by mary kate

I love how she documented her results and put together a row of her work with the gentle stitching. And mary kate you are conveying as much information as possible on your 12 x 12 art. Just lovely.

Dreams Are Free by Dorci

I was attracted to this piece because it really looks like she created a book and just layed down on a bunch of cool papers and took a photo. The little bits and pieces are well placed – especially the flowers framing the woman’s face.

Until next time… and I’ll try to be a little earlier!
