A few weeks ago Linda at StudioL3 mentioned Claudine Hellmuth's Composition for Collage class at Big Picture Classes.
The first week of class focuses on asymmetrical composition: Whew, holy crap, was I pleased to hear something I recognized.
Unfortunately the second half of that admission is that I recognized asymmetrical as something I haven't thought of (remembered) since I was roughly 14 years old.
And that was awhile ... OK, it's been more than 25 years ago that I learned about asymmetrical composition at O'Leary Junior High School.
Since that was the same period of time in which yours truly had to perform an "oral speech" in civics class, I'm pretty much thinking that asymmetry was probably buried beneath the terror of a speech about economics.
Anyhow, back to the subject: Composition for Collage homework assignment for week 1, asymmetry.
The background is black card stock, glimmer chalk, mod podge, crystal fine glitter, color wash, watercolor overcoat, and dimensional pearls.
Our characters are Octopode's Mad Hatter and flamingo. The sentiment, You take the Cake, is from a now-defunct stamp company.
So, what do you think? Did I manage to create the arrangement correctly?
I'm not sure if I nailed the assignment, but I really like this creation that is so glittery and shiny in person, you almost need to view it with sunglasses!
