From small beginnings come great things.--Dutch proverb
Lesson 6 in Elizabeth's AB class on her blog has us continuing to explore design principles. This week we are looking at repetition, rhythm or pattern, dominance and contrast. My first completed page looks a little wimpy...I am hoping as the lessons progress that I will get some ideas how to add to it. Inspired by our trip to Mykonos:
As Elizabeth pointed out to me last time, my fish page also demonstrates repetition.
My second/third page spread turned out better; at least I was happier with it. It reflects a trip to Niagara Falls and visits to the Floral Clock and a Butterfly Sanctuary:
My book is really starting to shape up! Looking forward to the next lesson!
P.S. A few people inquired about my crystal sun catcher. These are antique crystals salvaged from a lamp. It does create many small rainbows in a circular shape. In our windows which have a gas in between, it seems to work better if it is suspended a bit away from the window--say, on a curtain rod, rather than from a suction cup on the window. I will be making up some for sale (I have another shape to try also) and will probably put them on my new website. When they (and the site) are ready, I'll announce it here. Thanks for asking about them.
