I have been badgered into considering it again and thus forcing myself to make time (= lose sleep....hee hee).
Seriously though, its a class concept that brings art, in all forms, together; with scrap booking, cardmaking and photography being the three main interests I love.
Although design principles have been around for centuries and used by great people such as Archimedes to Monet to Michaelangelo to Brunel to Hollywood, design principles are used to bring focus and detail with balance. It allows you give weight to your scrapping/cardmaking/photography. They are proven theories that are the base coat to all pleasing pieces of art/architecture/photography.
And I'd like to share those with you - to help you understand how you can trust white space, balance and detail. I don't claim to be the font of all knowledge but I do understand these principles completely and this is why I find photography and scrap booking so enjoyable.
Simply entitled Principles, I will be starting an online course coupled with input from two of my favourite photographers and Scrap bookers - Anita Mundt and Mary-Ann Hawes. They will also provide input into these theories too.
The course will be delivered to your inbox every Sunday including images of scrap pages, cards and photographs using the topical principle subject for that week plus a link to a private forum to discuss the ins and outs and share information if you need help.
This course will be your bible to understanding design principles such as:
* Rule of Thirds
* Radial symmetry
The 6 week course is an investment priced at £20.
If you wish to register an interest, please email me here.
I will then contact you accordingly.
**I leave tomorrow for London. I finally have my screen test with QVC for Design Objectives. I am not as nervous as I thought I might be but then Dawn did give me some majorly expert advice about not swearing/saying "erm"/moving fast/burping etc. Clare and I have plans for wasting time doing this and that and luckily we have been invited to watch a live show on the Friday night. Fingers crossed the camera does not pan on to either of us becuase I might just break out into song and wave to my mum!
