I hope today finds you well. I notice mornings are bit darker. And evenings seem to come a bit sooner. As Liz mentioned yesterday, a change in season is in the air. Lol – but typical of this time of year it is chaotic with 100 degrees one day followed by rain and 80’s the next. I too look forward to Autumn and sweater weather!
As I look at my gallery standout picks for today, I see pink backgrounds and pops of blue along with touches of orange. The palettes are a bit romantic and vintage, and a little bit dreamy. I see butterflies dancing across the page and absolutely marvelous digital collage and graphic design!
First up is “Rose Garden” by Mijo. The horizontal flow, the nearly monochromatic pink (with green foliage) and the mix of modern with vintage stood out to me. This layout is very lovely and has such wonderful depth with the arty background that seems to fade into a mist.

My next two picks are examples of digital collage. “Far Beyond Your Dreams” is perfectly tilted as this work of art has dreamlike qualities. The butterflies dancing across the page are wonderful, dimensional complements to the blended flowers, stars, and background. The blue and gold palette is exquisite.
Small Child is a marvel! Gazing at this is like walking through a botanical garden – there is much to take in, new details and patterns with every shift in focal point. Gold and blue are strong colors here too. But while I will say Far Beyond Your Dreams is dreamy, Small Child has a harder, graphic-design edge to it. Both achieve marvelous dimension and beckon you to look deeper and deeper into the layout.

The next two layouts are very different styles with “here I am” having a shabby chic, vintage vibe and “Movie Time” being very modern and graphic. They have something in common, though – they both take advantage of diagonal flow. That slant adds such visual interest to both of these layouts. AND, they both wisely use black and white photos. While the photos are the focal points, they do not clash with their backgrounds. Nope, the entire piece is a cohesive work of art.

Last but not least, is a beautiful scrapbooking work of art and memory keeping layout by Rae. Love pours through this layout.
