Abstractionist Style Decoded
You design pages using the visual language of form, color and line to communicate a message. Your message might be specific like to share a story. Or your design might try to establish a mood. Or you may try to share an emotion visually. But overall, you enjoy using your page design to visually communicate a moment in time thoughtfully.
You take advantage of the memory-keeping aspect of scrapbooking combined with new digital technology. You rely strongly on tools such as blend modes, masks (both layer and page), and an assortment of brush tips to embellish your pages. With these tools and used in conjunction with color, you’re able to guide a viewer’s eye around the page quite specifically via flow.
You reach for artistic, two-dimensional embellishments over more realistic, three-dimensional pieces. While your photos are an important aspect of your page, you concentrate more on your photo-editing process to create dramatic and processed photo-based page results. Thus, your photos become your main and most valued embellishment.
