Simple, Moderate, Complex - RAK below.....

We are doing something a little different this month at Webster's Pages - the designers are the 'guests' and we are sharing about ourselves and presenting some projects showing our work in progression - or how you can make Webster's work with any style. Now my normal style is more on the complex side, I would say but I really like all of the stages of my layouts. Each one is complete on it's own. Everything here is from the Seaside collection - one of my faves.

Simple: This would be my basic simple design with the matted photo, title and journaling.


Moderate: On the moderate layout you can see how I've trimmed down the background and matted it on white, added in some trim behind the photo, added the compass and some buttons.


Complex: For my final version I have added handcut elements from the Seaside papers and more buttons and another layer of paper in the upper left corner to accent.


And a few detail shots:




I'd love to hear what you think about the different layouts and which one appeals to you more.....I think Webster's will work for any taste and style. And to let you try it, leave me a comment about which is your favorite and I'll do a RAK and share some Webster's Pages from my stash with you. You can also check out the other designer's 3 versions - here at inspireME.

I thought this was such an appropriate photo - as I am heading out the door for the beach!! :) See you soon!

  7. I've been looking at all three of them, and surprisingly I find it very hard to pick a favorite. All of the others seem to pick the last one, but I don't know... I guess my pick would have to be a the middle one, or the first one with some but not all of the elements of the third one. Ah well, I can't make up my mind, I like them all!!!!
    Love xxx Peggy

  8. Lucy, I love the complex style. I love my pages to be dripping with detail and texture. I want a page to make me want to reach out and touch it. Which is exactly why I love your style. I love that each time you look at it there's more. Such eye candy! Thanks for sharing! -Alisa

  11. "heading of to the beach"??? Ohhh, I'm jealousss...
    Thanks for sharing this, I always love looking at "progress photos". I like the last layout the best, the dark paper in the corner/edges makes the layout "pop" and although I don't use much embellies myself, I love the way you clustered that much embellies and buttons and cut out pieces.. awesome!

  17. Love the simple LO because I feel like I could mimic all the elememts successfully. Knowing when to stop adding layers is a talent I have yet to master! Have a great time at the beach :D

  24. GREAT page, Lucy!
    When I saw the first one, I thought: gorgeous, this is the best one. But when I saw the 2nd one....and the 3rd one....I was so confused. They're all just stunning!!!
    Okay okay, I'll pick my favorite. The complex one, because I love every detail!!
