I went with rectangles & squares. I cut up a bunch from 2 magazine pages with interesting color/texture. You can use the pages as “paint” for their color and design.
I was going to use all the magazine pieces but I found the little woman image so I used that in there. I saw that the key sticker fit perfectly and then I found the “believe” image.
Here’s a design tip I learned in my painting class – make “lines” on your piece so the eye has a path to follow. I put a diagonal line of the silver balls and there’s a “line” created by the images and the bottom of the pot in the silver balls on the left hand side.
You DO NOT need to stress about your pages having direction – It actually starts to happen subconsciously after you practice making pages. You can look at what you’ve already done and there will probably be a path you made without thinking about it.
I’ll pop in some techniques I’ve learned in college here and there, just for fun. You are not getting graded and you don’t have to follow any techniques.
