i always love your work, but this one feels like it can't decide whether to be very symmetrical or not. the typesetting needs more thought, esp with the darker lines of type. right now, my eye kind of wanders down, then off the page. really like the color palette, and is that some kind of antique-ing finish on the bg? how did you do that?

I really like the typesetting on this....it feels very organic and free flowing, which seems to mimic the shape/flow of the artwork on the sides. I thinking making the type symmetrical would make it feel too static. I love the way it is, Kerry! You always have beautiful work.

Thanks Amanda (and Jana) for your feedback! Amanda - that was exactly the what I was trying to achieve...free-flowing and organic. So thanks again!

I agree with Amanda, Kerry, I love it just the way it is. It give the impression of a soft breeze blowing through the wild grass. :)
