Altered Book - next lesson


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
 
Line
Form
Shape
Space
Texture
Colour
 
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 :)

I am enjoying your altered book posts very much, Sherry, and if I though there was even the slightest chance I would manage to follow along, I would. I have been checking out some of the lessons and am sure we all could benefit for working through them.
It looks like you're having fun with it!

Great spread Sherry, the whole thing flows beautifully and you have covered each section well. I also particularly like the fact that you have managed to include the work "Line" in your page. Your pages are always so delicate and peaceful.

Guess I should "get a move on," too. I apologize for being so late visiting, but with company here last week, I simply had no computer time.

I was blown away by these two pages. You have captured the essence of the lesson, and I am very, very impressed. Everything was so well done, so well thought out, and followed your theme perfectly. What a great example of ALL the design elements!!

Jackie said...

It looks wonderful. I think you have definitely achieved all of those things, but most importantly it looks so good as a whole. Great work!

Sam said...

Love the creases in the background and the way the ladies fade away! Great page! x
