GSO • Gallery Standouts

Es gibt so viele wunderschöne Scraps und daher bin ich ganz besonders stolz, wenn eines von mir als GALLERY STANDOUT, als herausragendes Layout, ausgewählt wird.

I was drawn to this first layout, be thankful by sylvia, because of the wonderful color palette in the photo.  The autumn gold sweater and overalls just say fall fun to me.  I also like the angle of the photo and the way she cropped it — it adds so much interest.  Her choice of accents are equally pleasing.  The three swirls are reminiscent of leaves blowing around them and the buttons are perfect to anchor her photo.  Finally, I love the top of the tag peaking from the lower left corner of the page and her be Thankful message.

The minimalist approach in Forever Mine by Sylvia has such a visual impact. The castles, lace and ribbon give us romance, and the orange paint adds drama. Embellishment perfection!

We have had many October mornings that look exactly like this.  It’s a beautiful capture of a day in the season.  I like the background which seems to match the mood of the photo, and the minimal bits of soft blue elements.  The grungy page framing adds so much to the overall look, and the simple title says it all.

Pink is one of my favorite colors so Hunting Like a Girl jumped out at me. Sylvia’s shadowing, ultra-clean composition, and diagonal flow are captivating, too.

Summer Memories by sylvia caught my attention right away! This is what I call beautiful simplicity! That photo is so precious!! The dotted background paper and added paint are lovely. And that adorable little pink flower is the perfect touch!! The shadows are beautifully done as well! Such a sweet, sweet page!

I love the white-washed wood background on this layout and how it allows the sweet little girl, especially her eyes, to pop from the photo.  This page reads that she is main focus of this moment and everything else is just there to accentuate how adorable she is.  The mixing of different medias, paint, wood, paper, adds texture and depth to the neutral field, while the small pops of yellow and orange add a little color and interest.
It’s a wonderful moment captured on a wonderful page.

I admire artists who scrap with a minimalist style and still tell a complex story. Love the tilt to photo, drop shadows, woodland embellishing, and anchoring with the grass-like rickrack. Makes me feel as if I beginning a grand camping adventure!

Me by sylvia really drew me in when I saw it.  The complex background she has created adds to the sense of drama of the photo.  This drama is  enhanced by the  use of the torn frame over a portion of the blended photo.  Love the subtle title and the single flower stapled to the corner of the photo.  This is just a totally stunning page!

This layout by Sylvia, isn’t about the blending. It’s about EVERYTHING. The wonderful use of the brush (which, technically *IS* blended into the background), the little paint spots placed just so, the tiny heart on the outside of the circle. The photo is beautiful and I can’t rave enough about her genius in stitching the inside of the bullseye! I am surely lifting that little gem of a trick! The simple word strip says it all. Sylvia is one of my favourite simple, white space scrappers and this one does not disappoint.

Moving away from the holiday but staying with the season is my next pick, The Scent of Fall by Sylvia. 
The masked photo taken from behind is the perfect autumn shot.  The combination of hand-drawn and paper leaves cascading down the edge of the page moves the eye toward the title. The textured paper is the perfect backdrop and the bits of text and sketchy branches and birds support her theme. The half circle of patterned paper and buttons in the opposite corner complete the page.

The first layout that caught my eye was and then by *sylvia* .  It seems fitting to choose this one since the Summer Olympics are fast approaching. The extraction is outstanding and shadowed to perfection. The simple sketched circle frames the figure and only a few embellishments are needed to complete her design. I love the split papers and that she used both the stitches and word art to demarcate the change.

Next, my attention was drawn to the central design of Love Yourself by sylvia. The chevron backdrop works so well here and I like the simple layers under the frameless photo. The scatters leading up from the little camera embellishment, up and under the photo, interrupted by those two little flowers, and carrying on up to the top of the page, look like they’ve been punched from the little pieces of dotted paper and they make me think of the magic that our cameras help us create … and the magic here is the adorable photo and the way it’s been wonderfully scrapped!

I love textures, and this artist really used textures as an accent here with that waffle paper, grabbing my attention. The ripped photo and doodly bits are also really appealing against that yellow paint splash. Love the perspective on the photo and there are just enough accents on this one. I am a big fan of painting the corners, so I really like the extra floral doodle embellishment toward the bottom of this page.
