Blogging from A-Z • D
D is for Design. Design makes all the difference in a piece of artwork. A craft is just a craft until you bring design into the mix. Design can come easily. Design can be elusive. Design can be simple. Design can be intricate. Design can look good. Or design can look bad! It's all subjective though, isn't it? Or is it?
Elements, colors, and textures must all come together in a balanced harmonious piece...here are just a few examples of some pieces where I felt my design was just off! (in fact, all three of these pieces don't even exist anymore - I pulled them all apart to reuse the beads!)
Right now I am struggling with my design for the Bead Soup Blog Party! Sneak peak:
Although I'm sorry our host, Lori isn't feeling well, I was relieved that our reveal got pushed back a week. And thankfully - I've got an idea for my design that I think just might work!
Do you create? What is your design process? Do you sketch first? Lay out your materials? Just go at it with no firm ideas in mind? Let the medium do the designing for you?
