- sticky-dots, one color
- contrasting color of base paper, about 8" x 10"
- Choose a color of sticky-dots and then a contrasting color of paper. For example, yellow dots on purple paper work as an effective illusionary combination.
- Stick a yellow dot on the purple paper. then another. Then another and another and another. Try to leave purple paper showing between the dots.
- When the paper is well filled with dots, stand back and look at the design. Foe more optical fun, stare at the design for a little while, then stare at a white wall. See the dots?
- Use two sizes of dots of the same color on a contrasting paper. Try to make patterns with the large and small dot for an optically stimulating experience.
- Cut construction paper or colorful sticky-backed paper into squares, circles and other shapes from several colors. Create a collage on a contrasting color of base paper. Incorporate patterns forwonderfully weird optical results.
