This set is mostly symmetrically balanced, with slight differences like the height of the words to add interest. Though the background is busier than I usually make them, I kept the outfit the central focus by adding a large translucent white square between the outfit and the background, causing the background to fade. The repetition is obvious in the number, size, and shape (and even coloring) of the books, and in the repeated colors and flower motif of the outfit.
Please offer me feedback on how successful this design was, any pointers you can offer, and your opinion of the outfit. Thank you!
