About Carol Fazio

My life revolves around a life-long passion for art, design, pattern and color. And while I also love graphic patterns and beautiful typography, I enjoy making a mess with pastels, watercolor and charcoal. Minted is the best place to explore my design personality. I am proud to be part of the community!

Hi Carol, if you're still on here and not busy do you mind checking out my updated version of Love Letters? I added the exclamation back in but with a space now between it and the O. I'm wondering if it helps balance the bottom right corner, or in your opinion if you think it's unnecessary / busy? Thanks again and if you don't get this, no sweat!

Hi Carol! Thanks for your advice, I think you're right about the exclamation point looking like and L – I added an option without it for a poll. I love the colors and texture in your submissions they're so pretty!
