I really love the look of things layered on a page...Like this one called "The Little Guy." It's kind of a mix of clean and simple, yet has the layered look.
However, I love the look of ripped edges and inked papers and that "rustic, dirty, aged" feel too...sort of like this layout called, "Draw My Face."
But I love the look of white space on the layout too...you know what I mean by white space, right? It's not necessarily "white," but blank space that allows your eye to rest on the page and prevents that cluttered feeling...sort of like this one on my "Gather" layout below.
But I also adore those blocked layouts where everything lies neatly in rows or blocks on the page, keeping your focus on the pic, or the journaling like this one, "Goggles."
I also like when lots of embellies are grouped together to evoke a message to the viewer. Like in this layout below called, "Note to Self," I have little messages like the Superman sticker, a puzzling math problem, butterflies, a today post-it note...
