Page Drafts has been sharing some EYE CANDY here at the blog every month. The monthly GALLERY STANDOUTS are a great way to showcase you and your amazing creations. Its also to say thank you for using our sketches, to add a bit more colour and most importantly bring you, our fabulous followers even more inspiration!
Each of these pages will show a creative use of the sketch, may include the monthly TIP & TRICK and of course possess incredible artistic talent. Where possible I have added links to each image so if you would like to see more of the artists work simply click on their pages to be redirected to their blogs or most current gallery, leave some love and say we sent you... he he!

If your page has been showcased here you are welcome to grab the GSO Eye Candy Badge

Okay lets check out the MAY Page Drafts Gallery Standout Selections...
These scrapbookers are all masters at telling their stories, each in very unique ways.

by Anna-Karin
Page Drafts Template for CSI #122

Banners are a great way to arrange photo's and include little collected trinkets or ephemera from the event your scrapping about. Adding lots of texture to a page is a great way to re-interpret papers in a sketch. Anna-Karin made a fantastic background using her Gelli plate. Scoot over to her blog by clicking on the image above to see how she created this fantastic page.
'Mexico City'
by Debbie Standard
Page Drafts Template #28.5

Multiple photo templates are fantastic for capturing those big moments especially travel adventures. If your not into project life then a symetrical designed template is a perfect solution to documenting all those travel photos whilst keeping it organised. Debbie has picked the perfect sketch to showcase many amazing memories.
by Kristi Brockschmidt
Page Drafts Template #29.1

This gorgeous page is a great example of how the combination of one great photo and a good title can tell the whole story at a glance. Simply incredible...need I say more?
by Natascha Broers
Page Drafts Template #1.4

This digital page is so cool. So many fabulous elements and great layering. Stacking lots of themed embellishments is a fun way to help support your story. Just by looking at the images you can tell Natascha is either heading off to London or is soon going. Tash is very clever at visual story telling.

'Bold & Beautiful'
by Wendy Sue Bennett
Page Drafts Template CSI #118

When I saw this page in the CSI gallery I was instantly taken aback. Every detail in this page looks relaxed but considered, its a perfectly resolved design. From the doodling to the textures and after reading the journaling you are instantly transported into another place. Fantastic page!

I hope everyone enjoyed viewing these jaw-droppingly beautiful artworks.
Keep an eye out for next months GSO which will be end of June, you never know it could be YOU!

Congratulations Wendy-Sue, Natascha, Anna-Karin, Kristi and Debbie...all your pages are magnificent!

We'd also like to congratulate this months
