Words and pictures

Today we developed our pictures to go on a greetings card, thinking about how an image can become a product on a shelf.

Fran began by giving some feedback on what we did last week and her thoughts on how we might develop our initial ideas.

Fran explained that by the end of this session she hoped that we will have understood about composing the picture and have decided on the final subject for the card.

Fran gave us tips on what would make a good card

… keep it nice and bright

…something that will work all year round

We looked at the connection between words and images and each of us wrote a page of words as ideas for the title of our card designs.

Before the break we talked about the Blog and Lee offered to take photographs and write about today’s workshop.
