I actually think the simplicity is what makes it work. The picture of Weston checking his phone for messages was the entire inspiration for the page. The simplicity of the Pepsi logo is what inspired the gentle flourishes that I hand stitched. And because the title needed to be simple too, I just used a very clean font in two sizes (American Craft rubons) to follow the stitched lines. The little bit of journaling that I did do - I simply handwrote it and followed the stitch lines once again.
When I decided to share this page with you, I was reminded that it is a REALLY good thing to sometimes to get outside our creative comfort zones, and try scrapping or crafting in a style TOTALLY different from our norm. I actually can't wait to get back in my studio and try another page that is unlike my regular multi-layered, multi-mediumed style. What style would be the total opposite of your norm? I would love to see what you come up with!
