What is a style?
When I go shopping with my friends, sometimes they point towards a window display and say, "that's your style!'. Ok. I know why they say so, but a quiestion pops up from somewher deepest in my mind. Is that what I really want? or just fit to my style habbits?
Frequently I wonder 'what is my style' while working on scrapbooking layouts. Many of my friends say 'yeah, I knew this is your works', but I just want to ask know how you infer that by what clues.
I think there's a huge gap between 'what I love' and 'what I love to use'. What is the reason make me say I LOVE THAT STYLE?
I made this layout intentionally to break some habbits in styling. It's just a common layout, but I think I made a step forwards. I used to put deep or dark toned colors to press bright colors if there are too many befor, but I refrained this time(photo has been sidelined. :D).
I tried to let background papers and embellishements enjoy their bright and lively mood.
Style habbits mostly came from one's persomality and life. It is interesting to trace where my (grown to) habbits stem from. Is that what I really wanted to be from way back? or is that what an avatar who internalized conditions from outside of me wanted? I am still on the journey to find real me. Since there is no one scold 'what you want is not right', I'd have no fear.
