I’m happy to be back on the blog after a short break, refreshed and ready to bring you a round of layouts using the new collection from SnickerdoodleDesigns, Metamorphosis.
As always, the collection is packed with both artsy and traditional papers and embellishments. While the collection is the best value, separate packs are available too.
You will find Metamorphosis on sale currently and at special pricing at:
I was honestly amazed at the layouts created with this collection and found it difficult to choose only a handful to show you here. Still, I’ll get right to the purpose of my post and show you Fly High by franlk. The globe outline, one of the accents, is used so effectively here. I really like the way the outline blends seamlessly with the mountain peaks. The brushwork adds so much texture and the simple frame around the boy draws the eye there. Adding the butterfly and word art finish off the layout just right.
I love the large photo in Going by Rochelle. She also used a template by Heartstrings Scrap Art. The photo really pops in black and white. The clusters are so dainty and colorful and work perfectly with the large photo. I like how she tucked in the word strips and added the bit of journaling explaining this candid moment.
Dragonfly blue by modgee features an amazing photo. The artist explains that dragonflies are attracted to her friend and that seems magical to me. I really like the way she masked the photo and placed the frame on top to emphasize the focal point. The cluster is artistically arranged in a semicircle with the ribbon threaded through it. The word art is just right for the photo and I like the way she added the binoculars to support her theme of “dragonfly watching”.
There are so many creative touches in Moving Again by Glori. The blended background paper she selected is included in the kit and I noticed it was a favorite, chosen for quite a few layouts. Adding the torn layer across the top adds dimension to the page. I like the way she included the door knocker and key, both symbolic of a move to a new place. Her masking of the house is amazing and I love the creative way she used the door as a frame by extracting the couple and placing them on top. The blue paint really makes her cluster pop. Again the word art is perfect for her theme.
Metamorphosis by LiMa Inspirations is an amazing piece of art. This artist combines both shadowed and un-shadowed elements so effectively. I like the vertical cluster leading the eye down the center of the page. Placing her title across the torn bit with the tiny bee on top is lovely. Combining the mouse with the binoculars so he appears to be resting on top makes for a unique design element.
I hope you downloaded the cluster created by Renee on Friday’s blog post but in case you missed it, I’ll add it again here. Simply click the image to download the cluster.
I look forward to seeing your layouts using this amazing collection in the galleries soon. Thanks and have a great week!
