minimalist layouts

I'm participating on the challenge "The Color Room 141" and made two layouts for this wonderful challenge blog. I followed the color combination and the sketch. I was very quick because of the minimalism in my layouts. But I have so much photos on my desk, I have to be very busy ;-)

First layout I combined with the january challenge on "scrap for help". I added some twine.

For this layout I wrote a little poetry. It is one of my wishes and new year resolution and I'm a little bit doubtful but also proud of it. Sorry, I couldn't translate it perfectly, but it's about the silence, point of rest and beautiful light reflections of water and that a shrill call bring me back to the here and now. I had so much fun with it and I have other ideas for poems. So stay tuned...

das Wasser kräuselt sich leise, die häuser spiegeln sich entzückt, die sonne kommt auf sanfte weise, ich bin der welt entrückt - ein schriller schrei bricht die stille - der zauber ist verflogen, die welt kommt mich wieder holen

The second layout is very graphical and geometrical to present the building in the photo. I used a wonderful stencil by Balzer-Designs.
