So for the first four days of experimenting with Papertrey's Life stamp set, we've focused on using the flowers as flowers, growing from the ground up, so to speak. Today, we're going to use one of the stamps as more of a graphic design element, focusing on line rather than literal flowers.
This design was inspired by a pin you can see here. The lotion packaging places the words at the top, then botanical stems in a diagonal, all underlined with a solid line at the bottom. I chose the most stylized stem from Life and used just that for my botanical element. I love how the curvy line of the stem contrasts with the spiky flowers along it. There's so much movement here, but it's grounded by that solid blue line.
The font of the sentiment is clean and simple, keeping the focus on the activity below it, but the black helps balance it nicely.
Bling, of course, makes everything better.
I'm headed off to my craft space to change gears with the set now. What sort of pretty backgrounds can I make that will set off the solid images nicely yet still remain true to my CAS (clean-and-simple) style? We shall see!
By the way, any suggestions to treat a nasty cough/cold that's keeping me awake at night? This is very frustrating!
