The shape I chose to use is taken from the petals of the flower photos used earlier in this module - I cut out templates in graduated sizes. Image 1 - looking at just the shape by arranging the templates.
Arranging cut out shapes on contrasting backgrounds - images 12 and 13, both A5 size. Image 12 has turned into a bird, image 13 could do with more contrast to show the shapes more clearly.
Combining cut outs with negative shapes on different backgrounds - images 14 and 15.
Image 15 also show some arrangements on copies of the tonal paper.
