The flower photos are from Flickr Biodiversity Heritage Library.

My first work is a Mother's Day card.I choose a carnations photo:

I hope the card looks "elegant" and "simple" so I modify the color (including flower and type) many times.But I think I also need some suggestions. :-)

I read a book named "Flowers for Algernon" recently.So I decided to use this technique to make a simple book cover for it.

The flower photos are also from Flickr Biodiversity Heritage Library.

Because it is a sad story.So I turned flowers to grayscale.

I tried different color combinations and typography after I read teacher's suggestions:

Different color and typography really make different feelings.It's really an important part of design!I think I should work hard on it in the future!
