Moving on to the next lesson (#12) in the My Favorite Things Summer School Session 3 on Design.
This lesson is on Symmetry/Asymmetry.Symmetry is balanced proportions in design…If you cut the design in half, it is essentially the same on each side. Asymmetry is the placement of non-identical forms to either side of a balancing point in a way that the two sides seem to be of the same visual weight but aren’t.
Here are the cards I came up with:
Can you tell which is symmectrical and which is asymmetrical? Hopefully you can! : )
I love this die set from My Favorite things – It’s actually Flamingos, but a small snip to the beak and you’ve got swans! Gotta love any die that you gives you more bang for your buck! Of course, being the punny person I am, I couldn’t resist hand-writing the inside sentiments:
Some day somebody will make a stamp outta that! (hint-hint)
A quick note on that lovely background – It’s My Favorite Things fabulous Lace Background stamp clear embossed on peach cardstock. Then I went over it with a coral Tombow brush pen and watched it change into something beautiful!
On the left is the clear embossing (which I thought would turn it slightly darker, but didn’t).
