First, my tastes are very eclectic - vintage to '60's to freeform to elegant. This actually looked better in person. Love the scattered, woven look w/the variance in tones. The primary color is obviously blue but there are some nice subtle, but can be pulled out, grass green flecks. Works well with the striped paper in the grouping. Not sure why some are named after states (it is not always obvious in the print) but I like this but don't see "Alaska". I just see nice paper!
