It’s was my turn to choose MSO’s for the week, and what a job it was. There are so many gorgeous layouts in the gallery it was super hard to narrow it down to five, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
1. Family by JillW.
This page gets me on so many levels, I can’t stop staring at it. First off, I am dying to go to Paris so the Eiffel Tower snagged me right off the bat. Second, ahhh, that photo. As a amateur genealogist, I adore old family photos and that one is priceless. Finally, I love the cluster and the touches of gold that give this page a rich, vintage feel. I just love everything about it! Wonderful layout JillW!
2. chevaux by brinic
How cool is this page?!! I love her brush work and her photo effect, not to mention that gorgeous photo. This is one of those pages that is deceptively simple looking, yet just like the layers of photos, there is layer after layer of subtle brillance here. The perspective on the layered photos alone makes this outstanding in my book. brinic, I need you to teach me how to do this!
3. Too cute for words by robinismai
What caught my eye from the get go was that little guy’s precious smile; he looks so happy and hungry! I love how the brushwork on the background paper mimics the mess on his face and think she did a fabulous job on the cluster work surrounding the photos. The title and the word art, future heartbreaker, sum up my feelings for this layout perfectly; that face, and this page, are too cute for words! Wonderful work robinsismai.
4. Learning to Readby alannabanana
This one just popped out at me in the gallery! I love how playful the cluster feels and the way it moves across the page covering the entire width. I think her choice of wordart was perfect to reflect her daughter learning to read and I think the contrast between the movement on the page and the quiet concentration of her daughter’s face in the photo is a wonderful contrast. To me this page just celebrates the joy of reading. Fantastic layout alannabanana!
5. July 2014 Artsy Challenge by patsyt
I love a good quote and this one is great. I especially love that patsyt allows it to be the dominating focus of the page. I love how the quote is depicted — great font and great layout of words. To me, it has the movement and random feel of the wind constantly changing direction, yet is is still grounded and strong. Her artsy background is the perfect compliment to the quote and the splashes of red are very eyecatchin. patsyt, this is totally marvelous!
It wasn’t an easy choice, but there they are, five of my favorite layouts in our gallery this week. There are just so many beautiful things to see in the gallery here narrowing it down to these five took me three days. What a fun problem to have! Thanks everyone for sharing your talent with the Mscraps community!
