What is the principle repetition? Repetition is when a design is copied or repeated.
How does texture affect color? Smooth surfaces reflect more light than rough surfaces that makes them brighter and lighter. While rough surfaces absorb more light which causes them look darker and less intense.
What do curved lines suggest? They add a soft, graceful effect to designs. Curved lines are thought of as more feminine.
What is the difference between horizontal, vertical, and radial balance? Horizontal balance is when the left and right parts are balanced. Vertcal balance is when the top and bottom parts are equal. Radial balance is when the elements radiate out from a design. Are equal
What do diagonal lines suggest? They suggest action, movement and excitement.
What is space? Space is The area provided for a particular purpose, it can have 2 dimensions or have 3 dimensions.
What are the four types of rhythm? The four types of rhythm are: Gradation, Radiation, Repetition and Continuous Line.
What is asymmetrical balance? Example? Asymmetrical balance is when parts of the design are not identical but are equal in visual weight. An example would be if you had a large picture and next to it you had 2 smaller pictures that appeared to be even with the larger one.
What is the difference between horizontal and vertical lines? Horizontal lines lead the eye from left to right while vertical lines lead the eye up and down.
What is the golden mean? The golden mean is that all things are set up in a 3 to 5 ratio.

What does unity or harmony mean? It means that all the elements and principles of design work together.
What are the two things texture involves? It involves how the surface feels to the touch and how it appears to feel.
