Elizabeth has packed lots of design principles into this lesson. I'm going to be hard pressed to come up with classy pages!
She is right. There is much to learn about the various aspects of design and various schools of thought.
This lesson focuses on HUB and Ps.
Harmony, Unity, Balance with Proportion and emphasiS
With harmony everything should get along:
With unity all should at least be marching in step.
Balance keeps the main character form tipping over and off the page.
Proportion seems harder to define but emphasis means focal point to my way of thinking.
This is my Harmony exercise.
I was really on a roll with Unity and it was my AHA moment.
Balance was pretty much a copy from a google search. I prefer asymmetrical balance so that takes a bit more understanding.
Proportion is also defined with the Fibonacci Ratio which intrigues me. I was fortunate to be on an appropriate part of Gulliver's Travels in my technique book which is where I am doing my exercises before trying them in my theme book.
Emphasis is fairly easy to my way of thinking.
Hopefully this has H U B and Ps (harmony, unity, balance and some proportion and emphasis)
My theme book is trees/leaves and is a Snoopy and the gang thin encyclopedia:
Balance on the left and then Proportion top and emphasis bottom.
I don't quite consider these finished as obviously we have only begun the lessons so I'm anticipating coming back and revisiting these as my capabilities increase. I also counted future lessons and available pages and I'll be returning to some of these and combining a few lessons. This has been such a great learning class. Much thanks to Elizabeth. I'll be linking up to some other student's work.
