Lesson 6 is all about the design principles of rhythm or pattern, movement, repetition, contrast and dominance.
For this page I hand beaded a star with metallic green and gold beads (though you can't see the brilliance of the beads in the photo) and mounted it onto green star paper and added scroll corners. The pattern is shown in the design of the star and repetition in the corners and diamond shaped glass beads. I can see some movement in the irregularity of the pattern of the small stars behind the beaded stars, they seem to draw you into the page and receed behind the main element. Dominance is also shown by the size and impact of the large star.
Sorry about the reflection of the flash camera in this photo. I used a lovely, well used stamp of an angel with a trail of stars heat embossed in silver on a blue star patterned paper. The trail of stars behind the angel gives it the appearance of movement through the sky. Repetition is again shown in the corner decoration, and of course dominance in the stamped image.
For this page I chose a metallic, dark blue cardstock background and stamped and heat embossed in white powder some houses, trees and stars. The interest in the page is immediately caught by the contrast of the white on the metallic dark blue. Repetition is shown in the houses, stars and trees. Depth is indicated by the smaller houses that recede into the background with the aid of the white snow road getting smaller as it climbs the page. The only dominance I see in the page is the broad band of white at the bottom.
There has been a lot of information absorb in this lesson and lesson 5, a lot of which seems to me to overlap and have the same purpose. Looking forward to lesson 7, thanks Elizabeth.
