Creating this heart I used salt and pepper shakers for the larger heart, pink sweet and low packs for the second heart, yellow splenda packs, and blue equal packs to make the third heart. The inner and final heart I made using straws that I cut to form a heart.
This mixed media heart has several of elements and principles of design. There is a balance of near symmetrical balance, both sides are very similar. There is repletion in the rotating of salt and pepper shakers, and maybe even a real texture of the hole in the shakers. The primary color triad is used.
