go with the flow

i like this version better than the other two. because the waves on the stamp are slanted down, i think it looks better to mimic that slant with the lettering. some might disagree... but, to me, this one is more pleasing.

quick design lesson. look at the shapes in the stamp. the waves also look like her eyebrows and lips. the shape is repeated in her hair and the leaves. the horizon slopes down. her eyes are on the horizon line, sloping down. it is a very pretty picture. the tree trunk is roughly on the same slant as her nose. i don't think any of this is by accident.

and those three tiny trees on the very far right of the horizon are such a nice detail. three links in the chain of her necklace.
