The new challenge at paperDVIZHNIK is a brain cruncher. High light negative space and combine two images in one.
Negative space , in art, is the space around and between the subject (s) of an image. Negative space may be most evident when the space around a subject, and not the subject itself, forms an interesting or artistically relevant shape, and such space is occasionally USED to artistic effect as the "Real" subject of an Image.

I found this challenge really difficult. Not so much the making of my page, although that was pretty time consuming, but the 'design' element.......making an 'identifiable' negative shape or space out of a positive shape or space. I did not succeed in doing this :( I focussed only on "the space around and between the subjects of an image" . I overlapped the two moving figures and created positive/negative spaces within the figures and around the figures. To high light the difference I've kept the figures simple, just watercolour but the background detailed.
Layers of paper, tissue, embossing, stamping and watercolour.
A negative space created in the positive space where body parts overlap. New spaces or 'shapes' created by the wire. The wording...my new favourite mantra.
Rubons and metal gears connected with wire.
Background layers of paper, tissue, washi, stamping and embossing.
