So I found a dogwood picture & was playing on mytego
with it - can't decide which way I like it best...this is a good way to see them right next to each other, so bear with me here :-\



One of these may well be my next skin...

I like the first one better; it looks more balanced somehow.  They're both beautiful though.

The first one is a better design, the large dogwood anchors it.  It gives it a focal point.  On the second one, the two bottom dogwood motifs are equal weight, making them compete with each other.

In short, the first one is better balanced, LOL!

The first one to me definitely seems better layout.
You have to imagine how the individual pieces will look when they are in their final positions. I know from personal exp. that you cant get the whole effect until all of the pieces are applied to the different planes.

Yeah, I agree - once I saw them together on the same page here I knew I liked the 1st one better, now I know why!  (Balance - it's a good thing.)  I just hope that (if I do order it) it'll look good in person...  I still need to go through our digital photos & see if I can find something that would work.  I'd know the photo quality was good with one of my own.  Like Wheezie said - sometimes something gets lost when it gets cut up into all those parts.  Thanks for the input!

I'd say the second just to be contrary, but the first really does look better.

I agree too - first one. So jealous you can do the pretty girly skin. I got 'Sacred' by DecalGirl because it is fairly subdued. I'm in the Army - I'd get mocked mercilessly if I got a girly skin, darn it.... :)  Refused to get the ACU print, though! Can't wait for the skin to arrive so I can put it on - been waiting for it all week...

Sacred is actually one of the decalgirl skins I was thinking of - hope you'll post a pic when you get it - it's always nice to see them on an actual Kindle.

I'm leaning towards the one on the right.

Are you having a skin made with the dogwood design? That really is nice! I've always like dogwood in designs.

I'm thinking about it but haven't ordered it yet. I was playing with some wallpaper designs (the dogwood was a wallpaper too) yesterday that would be very non-distracting, look almost like a granite or marble. So I just don't know yet. Plus I don't know how well the image would actually work, whether it will be clear enough, since it's an image I pulled from a website.
