A different type of layout

This month the challenge at Kraft it Up is to make a layout in a style different to your normal style. Well, I'm not really sure what my normal style is as I have tried different styles in the past, but I do seem to keep coming back to simple layouts with some layering and embellishment clusters. Well, that's what a aim for anyway! So, this month I thought I'd have a go at lots of white space à la Louise Nelson. I find it very hard not to fill up almost every corner of the page so it was a challenge for me to actually stop adding stuff! In the end, this is what I ended up with:

While I'm not displeased with the final result, I don't think I'll be doing a layout like this again any time soon. 

Here are a couple of quick close-ups to finish off.

Till next time, happy days!

Haha, but I LOVE this layout. This is my kind of style. Love the background color and how you added the twine. Love, love, love!
