This post is about my progress in the
Altered Book course being run (free of charge) by
the very generous Elizabeth from her blog
This lesson was all about
'Elements of Design'
which Elizabeth explored in great detail.
The elements in question are
In the double spread in my book (above) I hope I've
covered some of the elements as follows:
Line - in the tissue pattern paper on the first page
Form / Shape - I tried to create a 3D effect on the second page
with the girls by overlapping the images and colouring the front
one darker than the others making them fade out into the background.
Texture - the crinkles in the pattern tissue paper
which you can see in the above photo.
I highlighted them by rubbing metallic
paste over the page.
Space - well, there's plenty of that - the eyes can
positively have a good long sleep on these pages - lol.
Colour - as this is such a 'broad category' Elizabeth has
devoted an entire lesson to it and that lesson is already
on Elizabeth's blog - I'd better get a move on!
Thanks for looking :)
