This past week, weekend and for many the entire month of April has witnessed the celebration of Earth Day, the honoring of this wonderful planet we call home, and all that is precious in it, on it, within it. Of course our Oscraps scrappers have participated in the celebration in spades, filling the Web Inspiration gallery with brilliant earthiness!
Cheery-O Chris has inspired us this month with these wonderful colors of the Earth.
And even supplied the swatches:
We had a lot of scrappers focus on the sea in this challenge, the delicacy of marine life, the draw of the shore and the pleasures provided by the sea, the important of recognizing the importance of the oceans.
This one from MsKaty not only captures the brilliant blue, but that spark of complementary yellow makes the page pop.
This one from Dumpty is a wonderful photographic capture and a fascinating angle.
This page from blanuak appears light-hearted at first, with images of whimsical whales, but it packs a powerful and important message, duplicated multiple times in the text in the background..
Here are a few pages that shift the palettes a bit more toward the aqua, still full of powerful messages.
This simple and gorgeous page from Lilly-10 invites you to stare, focus and think, with a sublime photo and a thought-provoking message.
And speaking of powerful messages, out of the mouths of babes, this story from Alegna is so precious, as is the expression on the little boy’s face.
While on the subject of children and big dreams, is this striking page from Dids.
Back to the blues, and bringing it local, scrap-genie expresses her appreciation for nature around her.
I feel the same way. I love where I live, love the beauty of nature, and cherish my ‘Earth Swatches’ each and every day.
To sum up, and leave a song in your head, this page entitled ‘wonderful world’ from sue.falstaff pretty much says it all.
I hope I have provided some beauty and inspiration today as we wrap up the month of Earth Day. There is still time to participate in this and all monthly challenges and to compete for the monthly prizes. I hope to see you in the Challenge Gallery!
