It’s Summer School time again over on the blog for My Favorite Things.
Today’s lesson is all about the Hard vs. Soft design concept.
Hard vs. Soft is this:
“For every hard line or edge you place on a card, the design is balanced by some softness, whether it be from a texture (like a ribbon) or a shape (like a circle); too much hard or soft might not work. ”
So let me show you a card I made inspired by this concept.
I went with a hard background (striped paper and black cardstock). And then I added hard elements – circles, stars and sequins.
The soft comes in with the materials I used. I tied twine onto the stars and I cut the small stars and word from felt. I also purposely choose scripty hi word from the Happy Hellos Die-namics dies rather than something a little more strong and hard graphic wise.
To see who else from the Creative Team was inspired by today’s challenge, check out the blog.
