Finger Pointing – February 20th

Spending some time in the digi galleries is always a good start to a Monday. So many different styles and themes to be found but that’s what makes it so much fun to go looking… you never know what will catch your eye. Let me share just a few of the inspiring pages that I saw:

Crazy by Chbo

LOVE IT! Even though the background paper might be considered busy, the bright colors and random element placement, the matted black & white photos and dimensional title work stand right out. Really nice example of multiple visual triangles and how they make a page feel cohesive. The circles in the center imply activity and motion while the stitching holds it all together, keeping the eye on the page. Nicely done!

Havana by helenedubois

Iconic photos… there is a title and word art to give hints but the pics tell the story all by themselves. The rusted metal, messy string bits and distressed paper echo the rustic nature of the architecture. Lovely!

Social Addiction by fruitysuet

Well, this could be a photo that so many of us might have taken to describe someone in our own circle. Perfect perspective, love the painty touches and the dreamy photo treatment, adds a feminine vibe. Like how the title (and arrows) lead the eye across the page. Pretty shadowing, too!

The Great Outdoors by cinna

I love how she embraced the diagonal nature of the page design and made all the photos and title work tilt with it. Nice mix of photos and papers. Also, I love the metal/jewel elements and the softness of the feathers give it a very feminine feel. Beautifully clustered, too!

Florence & Oscar by quiltymom (Jan)

I’m a sucker for heritage photos. They pull me in every time! There’s something about the sweet florals, the soft paints and the delicate element choices mixed with the sepia photo that makes it pop off of the pale background. Even the font choice screams heritage. I just adore it!

Another tilted page grabbed me from the gallery today! The unique depth of the shadowing adds to the dreamy color palette and romantic feel. I love the seemingly random yet perfectly placed tiny elements. Soft and gorgeous!

I hope I’ve provided a little bit of eye-candy for you today, maybe giving you a little push to do some scrapping if you get time. If you’ve been inspired, head over and show the scrappers a little love!


Finger Pointing – February 11th

It’s bright and early on a Saturday morning here in Central Florida, a great time to spend a few minutes perusing the galleries around digiland. As expected this time of year, there is a certain feeling of love that’s pretty prevalent because of the upcoming Valentine’s Day, but we scrappers tend to tell our love stories all year long. That’s what this hobby is all about, expressing our love of life and family through our creativity.

Let’s see what I found to show you today:

Wrapped Around Your Little Finger by mrivas (Maribel)

I’d say a pretty perfect use of the “wrapped around your little finger” word art here 😉 What an adorable page! I love the off-center grid format, the unexpected angles of the papers under the diagonal, that bold and eye-catching green stripe and the pops of red in the element choices.

My Darlings by shivani.sohal

Love the wide border and the sweet tiny scallops pull in such a feminine touch to it. I like the slight tilt to all of the elements and photos, it gives it a very playful feel and the watercolor stamp echoes the painty details from the other elements. It’s a beautiful page!

Confident & Sweet by nietis (Sherly)

Adore the photo treatment she used to echo the feel of the kit! Even the font choice plays to that retro vibe. Nice mix of both detail and wide angle shots to capture the happiness on his cute little face of a day spent exploring with family. Beautifully shadowed as always!

Fun by profolly

Yep, the title says it all! It’s FUN! Beautiful, bright colors on the page to go with those vibrant photos. The focal photo creates such movement, you can almost feel the energy that a festival generates. Grabbed my eye right away!

Adventure by Dvhoward (Diane)

I love the reverse diagonal flow she created with the word art bits headed toward the journaling. Perfect element choices for a hiking, travel page. Nicely done!

Night Owl by britaneejean

That background paper just pulls you right in, you have to click and see it up close! Beautiful clustering and shadowing for a story with which I think we can all sympathize. I love it!

I hope I’ve found a little inspiration for you today. Click on the images to leave the scrappers a bit of love from you!
