Here I am playing with the transparency of the papers to create more saturated color or neutralize the colors.

In example four above, I switched to a dark background that is broken into a light area too.
Example five above, is simplified.
Example six above switches One shape to a more disintegrated shape.
I think my favorite is example four.
I did most of the design work in black and whites. I wanted to make sure the design was strong on its own before adding color. After reviewing several basic shapes over the entire module, I focused on two basic shapes that I not only really liked, but that felt that I could illustrate growth and disintegration.
On example one, it was the simplest.
On example two, I let the design move off the page. I didn't like it, but did like the way the form began to break up.
In example three, I thought about using the disintegration to form a compositional line as well as line density. The space was too small to develop the line.
In example four, I started liking it better.
