I am so glad the gallery has not slowed down, not one bit, for summer! It is just brimming with memories and inspiration!
First up is this wonderfully blended and inspiring page from THESCRAPGIRL. I love how the blended images form the background for the profile and words of Pope Francis.
Next is this delightfully composed “Hello Dolly” page by staciahall. Soft elements are scattered around the page that is grounded in the beautiful center photos. I love the bits of feathers everywhere, like they blew out of the photo. A beautifully composed STAR!
From our monthly challenges, first I was struck by Summer Colors by Dids. This is an amazing photo, capturing the raw beauty of nature, and perfectly HOT summer colors. A PHOTOGRAPHIC STAR!
Next from purlz76, this “Sew Me Up” page grabbed at me because of my love of sewing, which I too do not do as often as I used to. I love all this imagery, “stitched” to the background, and the great mix of fonts and alphas. A CREATIVE STAR!
And from my multi-designer challange, there are just so many things to note and admire in “Cuddle Toys” from Iken. First, I love how the softness of the toys really comes through in the black & white photos, I love the sketched frame accented with a bit of red, the additional softness conveyed by the feather, and the lovely word art that completes the color scheme. AN OVERALL STAR!
