I came across a beautiful blog yesterday that caused me to pause and ask, “am I really a simple scrapper?” I quickly retorted to myself, “well duh, of course you are Jennifer”.
While I do adore the beautiful artworks created by the likes of Cathy Zielske, Ali Edwards, Molly Irwin and others, the graphic design style is only one facet of what I believe it means to be a simple scrapper.
So, what is simple scrapping to me?
- Honoring the past & present
- Focus on storytelling
- Allowing photos to shine
- Conscious choices in shopping
- Purposeful design
- Choosing balance
- Streamlining processes
- Effective use of minimal time
- Cherishing imperfection
It is not just a design ethic or style, but a philosophy about fitting memory keeping into a busy life. What is simple scrapping to you?
