Finger Pointing – November 22nd

Oh my fur and whiskers!  I’m late… Actually, I am pretty late with getting this posting done this evening.  Ha!  I am feeling like the White Rabbit.  So what an awesome pick to begin tonight’s GSO post.

Don’t Be Late by Fiddlette Designs

I love a good Art Journal page, or page that is pure art.  I also love Alice in Wonderland themes and art.  Designer Fiddlette nails it across all fronts! This layout is whimsical and fun and channels my inner Alice.

Rj-lg-hmv2-hurting by Veronique PINCEMIN

I found this image to be full of emotion – the downtrodden face, the tears on the vest.  Beautifully melancholy.  The placement of the stitches are fantastic (I almost did not recognize them as stitched elements) and the shadows are superb.

June by Lynnette

Although it is not winter yet, with temps in the 20s (F) and snow, it sure feels like winter.  Thus, I was pleasantly surprised and felt a smidgen of warmth when I saw Lynnette’s layout June in the galleries.  The summer vibes with the hiking trail and beach scene brought a smile to my face.

Instalove by Kiana

I think the photos with the black and white stripped backgrounds are super cute…as is the layout!  Kiana rocks the shadows and I adore her choice of elements – the big flowers and the camera especially.

Pajamas All Day Zippyoh

What’s not to love here? The girl illustration is adorable, the clustering amazing, and that cup of coffee looks delicious!  And YES to pajamas all day!

Art is Life by Sylvia

For me, art is a significant part of life!  And this beauty pulled me right in.  The arty pieces on the white background POP!  I love the color palette and the styling.  And, I am incredibly inspired by the workmanship here.

Oh no, I think I hear the Red Queen, “Off with his head!.”  It is time for me to go!

Until next time – Have a wonderful and Thankful week!

Finger Pointing ~ November 21, 2022

Good morning Digi-land!!!!! How are you all doing today? It’s the cusp of the holidays, so I’m sure that most of you are pretty busy as am I! Let’s all get our comfy fleece and flannel on, wrap our hands around a cup of warm hot chocolate, put on a Hallmark Christmas movie, and surf the galleries!! I’ve found 6 goodies for you to drool over today!

Brothers by NAdams

I was so in love with this page when I saw it in the galleries! I had to click through and see who made this and what it was all about! There is so much here to be amazed at: I love the ghosted text in the background, the dried bouquet of flowers, and the beautiful photos blended into the background. I can’t imagine another heritage page I’ve seen that rivals this! I even tried to scrap-lift it, but it was not nearly as amazing as this page!

Together by IntenseMagic

What a sweet pair of photos this has! I had to come in and see this more closely! I love the color scheme and the wonderfully shadowed clusters. I’m always in awe of Jan’s ability to take little pieces of a kit and arrange them so perfectly! When I use stitches, they just look messy, but hers are always in the exact perfect place!

Autumn Leaves by Josie

The wood background is a perfect backdrop to both that amazing photo and the wonderful elements she placed onto it. I love the triangles in a circle, and the papers she chose remind me of a wonderfully warm cozy quilt! Lovely shadows and just the perfect amount of color.

You Are A Gift by Adrianita

Isn’t this just fabulous?? It went directly into my scrap lift pile and I’m really going to try to do it justice! The wonderfully placed frames are so perfectly accented by the branch wreath! The paint underneath is just perfect to give a flavor of color, and the blended backgrounds are perfect to not take over the page. The sweet cluster on the left is also perfectly and tastefully done. I love the sewn-down ribbon and that beautiful butterfly helping to tie one side of the page to the other.

Back to  Nature by ConnieMiles

Ok, that’s it. I want to go here. This layout is fantastic! I love how she captured the beauty of the river and in the circle frame, she captured the buildings. It’s hard to know whether or not she took pictures of those fabulous flowers or if they’re part of the page! I’m always a sucker for butterflies, and she didn’t disappoint! The background blending gave wonderful texture.

Time For a Hike by Pizazz

And finally, but most certainly not the least of these pages, is this happy page by Pizazz. I adore the way she blended the photo of the bridge into the page and surrounded it by paint. The torn paper on the bottom is wonderful, and I love the clusters she created. The photos are fantastic and the whole layout and the way she placed everything just feels like I’m on the hike with her! I also enjoyed the cute little girl peeking out of the cluster on the bottom!

Well ladies, I hope you had time to finish your hot chocolate and enjoyed this brief respite. I’m off to the store to buy the fixings for Sweet Sausage Tortellini Soup!! If you celebrate Thanksgiving, I wish you a wonderful and blessed holiday!!

Finger Pointing – November 18th-

Hello! Hope everyone is doing as well as humanly possible! My mum is over until next week, we have been trying to spend some quality time together, the weather has turned into proper winter here in England so not much outdoors, but enjoying quiet time and sampling some delights which we take turns to cook, and she helped me out in choosing some beauties from the galleries to share with you all, so here they are, some of the most gorgeous pages we found for your enjoyment and inspiration!

Starting with our very own Jan aka IntenseMagic with Week-22 L, a fabulous pocket style page combining fun, food and elegance, marvellous shadows, an impeccable look with the page protector effect, all over awesome!!!

Next is one of my most amazing Queens of Elegance, marijke with merry sweets,  a super sweet indeed introduction to the festive season! Love the super clean composition, those colourful circle spots are like a peek on a near future, here too with brilliant shadows, I can almost feel the warmth of those fluffy socks, and the yummy cupcake…. oh, food pages are killing me tonight!!!

On the other end of the style, filling the page with a talent words cannot describe well is Carol, Iowan with 2009 – Connecting. The multi-photo to perfection, mixture of textures and elements galore, shadows so beautiful one wants to reach to touch every piece, and with her looking so happy….this is a treasure in memory keeping! (as she does!)

Next is of of my very first inspirational scrappers, years ago she already was shining with her pages, now with new additions to her family, my heart sings every time I find a page of hers…is Sherly aka Nietis with Family Photos. Love her amazing take on the template, the beautiful choices with combined backgrounds, there is a softness to the whole thing, awesome layering and that cluster bringing a cascade of elements to the strips…I could be here all night telling you how much I love this!, so much, so amazing!!!!

Another blast from the past with a superbly inspirational talent, Norma with We All Love Butterflies. I’m gonna confess, I, for some reason, am not too keen on them for scrapping, but brought by Norma’s hand in this absolutely awesome page….most definitely love them! amazing creativity presenting the photo, brilliancy with color play, super gorgeous!!!!

Last but in no way least is Applechick with Felix & Molly. Another super incredibly talented artist with  a wonderful work on blending, the extraction, the paint, gesso and bits of more corporeal elements all together in perfection…pure.awesome!!!!

This is all from me today, hope you enjoyed!

Remember you can get to the original galleries by clicking on the name of the page and author ( not the actual image) Please do spare a minute or two to leave some love, we all know how much of a difference it can make, always, even more so in these crazy times we are living! Have a great weekend!!!

anna-aspnes-digital-artplay-collection-frolic-giving-viv.jpg by profolly
This layout is just so stunning! This would be the most beautiful print to hang on the wall! I  adore the paper tree and the sweet element bits on it. The string of letters is just perfection, as are the gorgeous pops of red! So, so beautifully scrapped.

Finger Pointing – November 14th

Happy Monday!!! I know for some the day is already over and for others it will be over soon.  I’m in the thick of soccer season  (2 kids and 3 different teams) and the number of games this week is a tad ridiculous.  Then we top that off with trying to get my senior to finish his early admission college apps….BUT….I’m here and all the gorgeous eye candy in the galleries just made this day so much better.

Hot to Trot by Bethie

I love this patterned background and then layered with more patterns.  I love that it all works together and nothing is competing for the attention (and we know these adorable little humans steal this show).  I did have a little giggle over the title.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

tis the season by lcpereyra

Love this tone on tone/monochromatic theme with the pops of red.  When I first saw this layout, it was the gorgeous photo that caught my attention and then I realized that the choice in background paper made this photo even more large and in charge!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winter Wishes by mrsashbaugh

I love this artists’ fabulous clustering.  This gorgeous photo nestled (with its pop of pink) so perfectly right in the middle of this magnificent cluster.  Sigh….swooning here.




 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cliff Shelf Nature Trail 21 by Kimberly27

This is one stunning pocket page.  The placement of the elements build upon the photos and their respective views. I love that the page isn’t over embellished and that the beauty of the photos really shine through.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas by Elizabeth

Oh this little lady just completely steals the show.  How adorable is she?    This layout is perfectly embellished and everything from the elements to the placement, looks like it all belongs.  This would be a gorgeous Christmas card to open for sure!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If I were Paper Scrapping . . . by Jam-on-Toast

This is another title that made me giggle.   I really had to stop as I am still a paper scrapper and a paper crafter… and oh the mess that I can create.  Olga completely captured the spirit and the joy of paper crafting in this stunning art journally TN layout.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope you enjoyed my picks for the day.  If you get a chance, swing by and leave these fabulous artists some love!!!  

Catch you around the galleries.
