Design Focus Friday - Rhythm

 Do you listen to music while you create? Does that change the rhythm in your work. The marbling above has a nice flowing rhythm with a little excitement added in with the red dots.
 This postcard is repetitious and has more of a staccato type of rhythm as the eye jumps around more.

And this is also very repetitive but flows better as your eye has a tendency to move up or downward.

This is probably the last of the Design Focus Friday posts. It has been a year since I started this journey and I feel it has really helped me with thinking about design a bit before jumping right into a piece. I hope you have enjoyed the series of posts and thanks for stopping by.

In another note, my big project is almost complete. I just have a bit of mopping up to do and then it will be off to the publisher. Yes - I wrote a book about felting. I will soon have a bit more information for you. I'm very excited that it is finished and there will be more details to follow. So I will be around the blogs more, leaving comments and showing you some actual new work in the near future. WooHoo!

Sorry I've been neglecting your blog lately, but I'm sure you understand that life gets in one's way sometimes. I have enjoyed reading the posts and looking at the work displaying. I particularly like the postcard in this post. I must say too that I'm excited for you with an upcoming publication, so hope that all goes well. Do let us know what, where, how to view, purchase, won't you.........
