It’s that time once again: it’s time for Mobile Highlights! That’s right, I’ve been surfing around Instagram and found some of the best layouts that are tagged with the Lilypad’s hashtag – #the_lilypad. Today I want to spotlight those special layouts for all of you!
First up is this layout by katechris05. The composition of this layout is great. The black and white photos make the colors look awesome, but it was one little detail that caught my eye: notice how the banner goes on top of the title work. I thought that was an interesting choice, and helps to make the journaling stand out a bit more. Had the title work been over the banner, it would have taken away from the journaling.
Ok, so this layout by notoriaus is just plain AWESOME SAUCE! I love the visual combination of images and the use of the clouds. Definitely a layout that caught my eye almost right away.
If you’ve been around The Pad a while, you know that I am a freak for anything Disney. This layout by yzerbear19 is not an exception. I love the “pocket” style to the page, and again, I am wooed by small details. Notice how the pictures of the park icons are color, and the other photos are black and white? This is a great trick to include a lot of photos, but make certain ones stand out.
Personally, I don’t usually dabble in the Art Journaling style that so many people love right now. That doesn’t mean that I don’t like to look at it! I loved the way this layout by afairlyfabulouslife combines the image of the child with the wings and all the paint and doodles. I also really appreciate that the art is collected in the center, with generous white space around the edge…it keeps the layout from looking too busy.
Apparently black and white with color is on my mind this month. This layout by idocumentlife was so awesome in the way it combined black and white photos with black and white papers and elements, and then used pops of color for accenting the layout. It gives the layout a real artistic feel.
Finally, I have this layout by intense_magic. I loved how this layout combined a lot of different elements. There are boldly patterned papers, lots of paint, some messy edges, a ton of hearts, cut outs, doodles…the list goes on and on. It doesn’t feel overwhelming at all though. All of these elements are worked together perfectly so that it seems like they were meant to go together.
Well, that’s it for this month. Keep using the TLP hashtag #the_lilypad and maybe I’ll be sharing your layout next month!
