The theme for my stamps was clothing, in particular styles from the 1950’s. I used 2 dimensional shapes to give it a simple style and then added fabrics to the main piece of clothing and drop shadows to add depth and texture to rather flat objects. The background and text are chosen to describe a setting.
Balance – This stamp emphasizes balance as the shape is very square, and also split down the middle.
Unity – This shows unity as all the colors match
Variety – This shows variety with all the different colors and pattern
Emphasis – There is an obvious focal point which emphasizes the hat
Scale/Proportion – This shows scale and proportion with the use of the big hat
Rhythm – This exemplifies variety as the man is walking and shows movement towards the left
