Hey ya'll!! Welcome to another Mix It Up Monday, hosted by yours truly...ME! And this time, we are Breaking All the Rules!! That is my challenge to you today, to break the rules...what rules? Well, as you know, in art, there ARE rules that some follow such as Rule of Odds, Rule of Thirds, Rule of Space...etc...While I wont go into an art lesson, which Im far from being able to teach, lol! I will give you some examples that you can do to 'Break the Rules' in our little hobby here! Examples include, but not limited to:
1. TWO brads/flowers/pearls (no odd #s!).
2. Put the image at an angle or not centered.
3. Use colors that clash.
4. No standard size card...ex. 41/4 x 51/2 is a standard size card, make a card anything BUT that size.
See where I'm going with this? Here is my example:
I used only 2 brads, and put the focal image over to the left-hand side instead of in the middle and only corner rounded one corner. I also used oil pastels on kraft cardstock..which in itself isn't really a rule breaker, but something normally not used, lol!
Ok, it's your turn now! Let's see YOU break some rules and just HOW many you can break on one card? Maybe the card making/scrapbooking police won't arrest us!! haha!
