Altered book, lesson 5 part 1

Hi everyone, hope you are all well?

I have been desperately trying to catch up with the lovely Elizabeth's altered book workshop. Here is my first attempt at a collage using the design principals she asked us to focus on.  I have used cosmic shimmer chalk sprays, some papers from Fancy Pants designs 'Wishful Thinking' collection (free with a mag)  and an Inkadinkadoo stamp.  Not entirely sure I have quite got the gist yet lol, but here goes anyway......

Elizabeth asked us to look at the following principals -

Harmony - think I have covered this with colour.
Unity - the sentiment and linked elements used.
Balance - not sure to be honest, still looks a little disjointed to me!
Emphasis - the sentiment and stars.
Proportion - the different sized stars and circles.

Any feedback and thoughts on this one would be very gratefully received, am feeling totally out of my comfort zone with this one lol.  My apologies for the photography too, another masterclass from big sis is required methinks!!

Thanks for peeking x

My first tag!

Hi there my lovelies!  Welcome to my blog and my first ever entry!!!!!!  I am showing you a tag that I have made for the Tando Challenge this month.

I have used Cosmic chalk mists which I love and a Tando mask for the leaves.  Loads of doodling and the sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo (I think haha)

Thank you for taking a look at my first ever post :-D x
