playing with white space

okay. so it's really minimal...to the point where it freaks me out a little.

but I had to try. I pushed myself to do something spare and bare and linear and minimal.

it is okay.

happy tuesday.


p.s.
new post up at the cafe. it's about stamps.

p.p.s.
The photo on this is kind of weird for me to look at now. I took it after I had had a really bad day. As in I just cried because this was such an awful day. This one was the last in a series of five photos. I think I look sort of hopeful. I like it.

I struggled a lot with the decision to not use any journaling. I wanted the photo and the single word to say it all. If I ever feel like telling the story, I think I will just write it on the back of the page.

haha don't be freaked out! I love it! I used to always have to FORCE myself to use less... and now it comes natural. So watch out! haha It's addicting (and scrapping goes fast/cheaper too!)
