Elizabeth's last AB lesson was part one of the design principles. Now I'm not usually one to follow 'rules' and my tendency is to move stuff about until it looks right to me then glue it down. It works most times and I guess we have a bit of a natural eye for harmony, after all we are surrounded by it in nature. Anyway I read and re-read the principles before setting to on my page and tried to apply them, harmony, unity and balance to my work.
I used the page I had tested the glues on and chose colours to harmonise with the photos I had picked and with the theme.
The unity comes through the design (I hope) with feather stamps repeatedly across the double spread and the two birds face each other and into the centre of the page in the hope this provides balance. I did find it difficult to stamp on the slightly bumpy pages so some images are a little indistinct so I need to sort that one out for the next lesson.
So, that's my homework for lesson 5 and I have a few ideas for my next set of pages - am enjoying this workshop very much - thanks to Elizabeth and my classmates who share their work
