This month’s collage exercise was based on the Design Principle – Unity and Variety.
It’s interesting the further we delve into Elements and Principles of Design that they all start to meld together. How cool is that?

Design Principle - Unity and Variety
Unity creates harmony by using similar elements within the composition and placing them in a way that brings them together. For example, using all circles (unity), but varying the size (variety). Other examples to suggest unity would be the use of repeated colours, textures or patterns.
Variety adds interest by using additional elements within the composition. For example, varying the colour of the circles (variety) but keeping all the circles the same size (unity). Too much variety of elements may result in a busy composition.
The key to a great composition is to find just the right balance in your work using both unity and variety to their best advantage.
