Our first instructor for Concepts is Marty Blake, a collage artist. Obviously, she wants us to work in collage for our first project. Our assignment is to make a set of 6 playing (or Tarot) cards. I decided to make my 'theme' nature, and the different suits are different environments.
Below are three versions of the same face card. I liked the trees in the first one, but I felt that the design was too busy, so I simplified it and ultimately I think I'm going to go with the third design (or something more similar to it).
I know I'm going to make a few changes, but I want to stick with this style for the next 5 cards. I will post the rest once I finish them.
