paperDVIZHNIK Challenge #41...........Symmetry

Challenge #41 at paperDVIZHNIK is SYMMETRY
A relatively straight forward exercise...each side of a central line needs to be the same. I have tried to add interest to the composition by including lots of texture and pattern.

SYMMETRY (Greek symmetria - "proportionality" from syn - "together" and metreo - "measure"). Regular arrangement of parts or forms relative to the center the main axis. Poise, accuracy, coherence parts united into a whole. Looking around ourselves, we observe many examples of symmetry. Flowers, leaves, fruits, human Figure, figures of animals and Insects, etc. 

Die- cut flowers and leaves.

Thanks for visiting today. If you have left a comment for me then I thank you, and am sending good vibes your way.
Our lives need a little symmetry, a certain amount of 'balance', but not too much...we don't want to become too predictable; that would be boring and no fun !
Have a fun week that include some surprises.
