Hello and happy Wednesday! The galleries have loads of beautiful projects! It was such a pleasure to scroll all through them for inspiration. Please join me and take a look. I know you will enjoy the treasures I found.
This is Liz J., and these are my picks.
Out of the mouths of babes…. or, slightly older children… come great quotes. I absolutely love how she combined the word art strips with real text journaling strips containing the story. The story totally made this page for me! And the intersection of the vertical line of photos with the horizontal line of journaling and word strips is really unique as a design idea. The cropping of the top and bottom photo add an interesting dimension too.
I knew there would be a lot of back to school pages in the galleries this month, so I was on the look-out for one that really wowed me, and this was it! I love that she included the kids’ schedules on the page, those real-life details make such a difference. It’s a great capture of this moment in their lives. Love the doodly bits, title work, and particularly the way that heart border divides the page to leave some nice white space. The pencil was a fun real-looking touch!
The end of summer brings lots of wonderful adventures to the galleries! I loved the text on this one, as she remembers the view her grandmother had of this site. Love the blending of the large waterfall and bridge photo, that depth really called for leaving it big like this. The filmstrip insert photos help round out the rest of the story, I like that she included the touristy shots.
She had me at the title. Sometimes the title can make all the difference on a page. I think her sentiment for her kids makes such a special statement through the title. This is a real life paper page, so all those elements, word art, ribbon and stickers must give this such fun dimension! I like the way she staggered the journaling, and the date stamp is an ever-important reminder of this important moment.
The tonal mix on this page got my attention right away. I like the use of the stacked banners to support the beautiful sepia photo. Nice use of pretty, girly borders. I like all the feminine touches in the doilies, flowers and beautiful patterned paper masked into the background. I like that she added a date to the bottom; I always look for the date on any page, and this one is placed well to give information but not distract.
This is stunning. Such a great design, with the beautiful pink elements hugging the sides. I love the way she tucked in the photo and used the film reels as such an interesting accent. Terrific bold use of the word art. Agnieszka is such an amazing scrapper, and as always, I love this page of hers.
Weren’t those amazing?! I hope you loved them too. Please click on the linked titles and leave the artists some much-deserved praise. Have a great rest of the week!
