February BAFA Meeting Design Exercise

The Beaumont Area Fiber Artists met Saturday past.  Our design exercise was on manipulating negative space with torn shapes, cut random shapes, folded image, and random same-shape paper.  Of note:  Kathy's and Christine's dimensional folded image (Fig. 5, top right, fabric and Fig. 10, second from left, paper) and Sylvia's examples in fabric - random shapes and "torn" (Fig. 7-8). Everyone loved Beth's cut random shapes in form of arrowhead (Fig. 9, 3rd from left), Dot's contemporary Gate (for lack of a better description) (Fig. 11, also third from left), Susan's waves of geese (Fig. 5, bottom right) and Liz's random shapes using both positive and negative image (Fig. 2).  I posted two sets of exercises, one from 2010 and one from 2016.  I thought the second set a bit more imaginative and communicated better (Fig. 12-13).
