Design Focus Friday - Rhythm

 The use of chain stitch as a filler in this piece gives a very flowing rhythm to the end result.
 The use of dots could seem more disjointed in rhythm but because they are spaced close together, the eye sees the entire shape instead of just the dots. So it ends up being more sinuous than spotty.
The rhythmic repetition of squares by themselves creates a choppier rhythm than the two pieces above.

How do you use elements in your work to create rhythm? Leave a comment and a link so we can all take a look! Thanks for stopping by and I will soon be back to normal operations as my big project is almost complete. WooHoo!!

I love how you use the chain stitch in that piece. I tend to be more choppy in my pieces, definitely need more rhythm and flow.
