Not so Aligned...

Spend time every day listening to what your muse is trying to tell you. -St Bartholomew

My stamping style is usually pretty...well, Aligned. I do almost everything in straight Horizontal and Vertical lines, alled lined up perfectly, I love the edges to be "Centered." So as I was flipping thru my Many Google Reader blog subscriptions I noticed a few blogs that were Distinctly different from mine...and I decided to try my hand at making things...more...Crooked. :) My LOSTie Sis Tammi and fellow Elzybells DT member Inge are good examples of this style...they both have such a flari for Patterned paper and how to put it together (notice how they Don't layer each PP onto a matching CS...I Never do that!) is my try at this. I am not 100% happy with it, I feel like the main image needs to be more centered...however, I'm not sure if that is just a product of my Need for things to be centered or a true design flaw...what do you think?
