One of my favorite things about working with this exclusively is pulling out some of my favorite pieces and getting to pick and choose from them. This collection has such beautiful colors and so many wonderful elements it's hard to choose.
When I started out making this page I wanted to go monochromatic. Then, I decided that it wasn't really the direction it took itself. So, it's got a quite ethereal feel but really ties itself to the photo. I love that.
I know it's a very simple page -- but if you look a little closer, there are so many elements at play here. The beautiful embellishments, the acetate tidbits, the mini icons, the squares and more! Then, I added a couple of elements to really tie it all together. The mist splatters tie into the seaspray -- the color even matching. Then, I added machine stitching around the edge in a wavy pattern to give it the ebb+flow feel of the ocean.
There could be more to the page. I could have added more layering and more everything -- but I chose to keep it simple with the focus on one of my favorite photos of this year.
