Gallery Highlights | 2.14.2013

Welcome to another edition of gallery highlights! This week’s layouts are all about using photo placement to build a solid design. All of these designers used classic, traditional designs but added something unique to each of them that truly make their layouts shine. I love every single one of these layouts and I can’t wait for you to see them. 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.

Turning 4 by Kathleen Summers

Kathleen grouped her photos and embellishments in the middle of her page and then worked out towards the edges with stitching and stamping. I really love that a large portion of her collage is a mixed pattern of papers forming a sunburst pattern. It draws more attention to her focal photo and adds a lot of color and energy to the layout. It’s a beautiful layout made even better with a fantastic design.

Epic Family Trip to DC by adventurousBran

Brandy used a map as the background for the pictures of her family’s trip. She layered tiny pictures over the map showing highlights of their visit and used dimensional adhesive so that they literally popped off the map. She also stamped and misted the background, added in adorable shapes and cut-outs as well as little bits of journaling. This is such a great idea – I can’t wait to try this for my family’s next trip.

I love & miss you by kellyras

I first saw Kelly’s card a couple of weeks ago and have been drooling over it ever since. First, I love the color scheme. Red, white and blue is such a classic color scheme but Kelly’s use of light blue hues in her card brings a bit of modern sophistication to the color scheme. It’s an absolutely beautiful combination and I can’t wait to see more of Kelly’s work.

2012 Cover Page by anke

Anke is just finishing up her 2012 Project Life album and her cover page is simply gorgeous! She used 4 photos to represent the seasons and cropped them into thin rectangles that then blend into the date. She added a simple quote, an oversized bracket and some lightly textured brushes to finish it off and the result is simple and stunning!
