Minimalist Style Decoded
Your scrapbook style is the epitome of less is more. You lean towards clean, relaxed, graphic and simple scrapbook layouts.
You rely strongly on the design concept of whitespace to visually draw the eye into the most important parts of your page. You arrange everything to support one visually compelling focal point.
You manage color like a tool — using it to create visual balance and flow for leading the eye around your page.
You don’t avoid adding patterned papers but you use it in small quantities either to create a pop of visual interest, develop a stronger focal point or both.
You avoid a cluttered page at all costs. Every embellishment added has purpose and you spend your time perfecting even the smallest detail.
