See how that works? I really do have food on the brain. I want to make it very clear that the patterns that I used in this piece are from the Repro Depot Flora book. They are not my own and I did not create them. However, I did put them all together in this little composed bowl of spicy soup. By the way, the Repro Depot book is really wonderful. My dear friend Audrey gave me a copy a while back. Second By the way, I need a bowl of spicy soup right now because it has been raining all day long!
I was tempted to do something with food, but didn't have the right ingredients to cook, so here's a different version of "spice." When I was in design school, one of my professors loved to use the term "spice element" to describe one thing in a minimal layout that decisively draws your attention because of its punchy color or unusual shape. You shouldn't need to overuse the "spice element" to be effective, just use it with confidence.
Well done, Kalli!
