lesson #5Our assignment this week over at Altered Book Lover is all about Design Principles. To be honest, I don't think about this subject much, meaning I just do what I like and if it looks good then I probably achieved one of the principles quite accidentally! lol
This layout is all about Radial Balance, which means :
"Radial balance is not very common in artists’ compositions. Radial balance is like a daisy or sunflower with everything arranged around a center. Rose windows of cathedrals use this design system. I included it because it is a technique often used in art journals."
So out of the different types of "balances", which include, symmetrical balance, asymmetrical balance and radial balance, I thought I would work with this radial balance. ( actually I had already been bouncing an idea around in my head for my next page, and it was definitely radial balanced, but shhhh don't tell Elizabeth ) ::innocent look::.....hey, I can pretend to look innocent!
Here is my page:
I took the pages from the book which I had already torn out and cut them down in 1/2" increments, so 1/2", then 1", 1 1/2" and so on. The last cut being 3". Each page was painted before adhering it, and after all the pages were on there, I sanded and distressed the edges.
If you want to see the proportional design page, then you can click here. This is a prime example of not pre-thinking the design but in the end I had followed the rules for proportion. Lucky me, lol
Now I still have unity, harmony and emphasis to work on.
