Welcome to this week’s Gallery Standouts,
our “O” version,
“O” My Stars!
The galleries were full of stars as usual, so I thought I would highlight a theme…shapes and patterns.
The first page that jumped out at me was Horse in Pajama by sweetdigi. Just look at all those stripes, both in the pictures and in the background. Love the addition of yellow stripes for some wonderful color contrast! Of course the real stars here just may be the cute zebras, such fascinating animals!
Next I was drawn to circles in this page called Autumn Day by rfeewjlj. It should be called “cute puppy meets autumn colors in the circles”. The dark circles add so much drama, each one like a porthole into the light of autumn! But I think the cute puppy is the real star 🙂
More circles jumped out at me in this lovely page from bbe. The colors are soft, sweet and whimsical, and the smiles on the faces are simply precious! Love the square stitched frame, funky round trees and wonderful word art to complete this simple but happy star of a page.
The shapes and patterns would have to be called “organic” in this case, but still I could not resist this page from helensenator. The beautiful light, the unique framing, the almost surreal boat coming right out of the page makes this a real “star”!
Back to more fundamental shapes, the ever-popular hexagon is the eye-catching star of this page by nessita called Pieces of You. But the real star is the adorable little girl in all the shapes, each one a different precious face.
This next shape is one I don’t feel like I see quite enough of, the oval. Note how perfectly the oval frame works for this photo, and sets it apart from the beautifully blended background. The addition of the red clockfaces and red word art makes this complementary color scheme pop, and makes it another one of today’s stars!
I’ll finish up today’s stars with one of the most fundamental shapes in photography and scrapping, the rectangle. Not a blah shape this particular rectangle, for it perfectly frames a fraction of a photo, giving us a glimpse into a snowy world by marnie333. Addition star points for the cute bunny!
