Gallery Highlights | 3.10.2013

Welcome to another edition of gallery highlights! This week’s layouts are wonderful examples of how to use  texture and soft colors on a layout in a way that really highlights the focal photo. Let’s go take a look and I hope you like them all as much as I do. Don’t forget – you can click on the links to visit the layouts in their galleries and view supply lists, leave a comment for the designer, or view the designer’s other work.

That Boy by Momma_Paparazzi

Michelle used a dark background for the base of her layout, layered on top of patterned paper. Over the dark cardstock, she layered more patterned paper, tags, doilies and buttons. The soft colors of her smaller layers bring both light and attention to her photo. This layout is filled with so much texture and so many fun layers – they all work together to showcase this most adorable photo.


Cherish by Danielle2108

In this next layout, Danielle has mastered the art of combining colors and patterns to perfection. She used two pieces of grey and white patterned paper as her background. The subtle colors she choose to add  – teal and yellow – combine perfectly with the colors in the photo. The black-and-white scripted title is the perfect finishing touch.


Sweet Jayden by Sherri

I love the layers and textures in Sherri’s layout! She used woodgrain patterned paper as the base and then layered patterns and colors and more textures under her photos to build up a beautiful background for the photos. As her final touches, she added arrows, stitching, buttons and brads to both the top, bottom, and center of the layout which adds balance to the page. Great layout!


Just Do It! by Sockergrynet

I love Marie’s layout! Similar to two of the previous layouts, she layered subtle textures and soft colors as the background for her layout. Her layers are symmetrical and centered but she then added her photos on an angle.It’s a great way to draw more attention to the photos and to add interest to the layout.


And there you have them – our gallery highlights! I love all of these and I really do wish we had time and space to feature more of the amazing designs out there.  Thanks so much to all of the designers who shared their work with us this week.

    Thank you for featuring my page!!! I had fun making it with the challenge of trying to use no cardstock (which I used only for matting and for my title). Lots of great LO’s featured today.
