Hi there everyone. Marcy here to start your week off with a challenge.
I love using the same element multiple times on a page for emphasis and direction. Sometimes when I want to put a lot of elements on my page I find that using a repeating element allows me to do that while also keeping my page calm and cohesive at the same time.
So I decided to toss the challenge of using repetition to Vivian today... and here's what she sent back to me.
What perfect photos for the Sasparilla line! Here's what Vivian had to say about using repetition on her pages.
"Repetition is a technique I use often on my layouts to help create flow and direct the viewer's eye across and around my page. On this layout, created with the fun new Sasparilla line, I repeated colors, shapes, patterns, and motifs. The three primary colors repeat, as do stars (most raised on pop dots and accented with twine), cowboys, horses, and bandana prints."
And here's how I interpreted the use of repetition.
I love repeating star patterns on my pages, so for my layout I used my Silhouette to cut out a star pattern on a piece of white cardstock.
I used a variety of different patterned papers behind some of the stars and lifted the die-cut paper up with pop-dots.
The stars add an interesting design element to the layout with the repetition of the same pattern also being relatively sedate.
How about you? Do you ever use repetition on your pages?
