Strong contrasts make things stand out, they are noticed immediately, commanding your attention. A strong contrast will intensify the impact cf the contrasting items.

When I got the request for this custom order for 2 jelly fish featured in an art quilt, I would never have thought of doing a wall hanging with this theme. But the more I thought about the request, the more excited I got about the idea. It was intriguing and interesting, and fun to work out how to go about it. I think that’s part of the enjoyment of creating any sort of art; translating an idea into something concrete. Working out the “how am I gonna do that?” to “I did it and it’s good!!” .
