Heart Note Alley Bands 7 & 8
Band 7 is one of those tweener ticking type bands that I selected to give a little bit of lightness to the design after the heavier band above it. For band 8 it seemed time for a larger band again, but one that included a good bit of 'empty' area as well. An open background in a design is as much a part of a design as any image you use.
Band 8's tulip type of floral, the grass and butterflies give the design the lighter feeling I was seeking at this point. I used the medium mauve with the lighter purple for the flowers, the dark mauve for the butterflies and the darkest green for the flower stalks and the grass and border.
