Cover for the e-book I'm assuming?
First - really fantastic to see that you're taking on so much. Always great to see young designers growing and having success so early.
1 - the separation between those two grey panels is a little too understated. The spacing between the two sets of text and the edges feels awkward.
2 - The text in the background seems a bit busy. I would ask myself whether the text back there has value aside from aesthetics. If not, maybe a simple and more subtle texture would accomplish the aesthetic goal without making it seem crowded.

Thanks @Manik Rathee. The text feels wonky to me too, even though I skewed it properly. It might be the length of the words. I think I might have to change that up.
I'll take that into consideration :)
I don't think you have nailed the perspective correctly. The text on the right hand side appears to be bigger than the left, yet the leading is smaller.
Nice work Janna...as always
Love the colors and textures!
Agree with @Manik Rathee about the text. Actually, the alignment and perspective of that entire area feels wonky :P
Edit: reading the other's comments seems that I'm the only "good guy" that haven't said nothing against your design. Actually my comment was about what it evoked in my mind as soon as I saw it. Surely there are some details to be fixed up but I think you nailed it in terms of color choices, textures and all!
I've been following your website for a while now and I Love reading your articles.
Also, is this a book cover? :)
I'm guessing the shadowing is part of the style, however it always bugs me when I see things like this with even drop shadows, it takes away from the realism, and directly contradicts the depth you put into it with the fold in the paper.
Despite the small details to fix.
i would love to read that :)
1) Jessica, you rock.
2) I suspect the condensed text in the background provides a vertical grid that clashes with the not quite vertical lines of the title.
Thanks for the feedback everyone, looks like I have a few tweaks to make :)
This is spectacular. Love the type and large background elements. Lovely colours in there Janna. Nice work!
Really nice Janna!
Love your work!
@Janna Hagan love this!
