Week 359: REPEAT

A new year is here and here we are back in January again!  How about repeating something on our card designs this time around?  You're welcome to repeat a past CASology challenge cue or create anything that comes to mind related to this word!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

Let's see what the design team and our guest designer did with it!

Guest Designer:  Claire

Repeating a simple image creates a great focal point.

Sometimes all you need is a sentiment, texture, bold colors & a few embellishments and keep plenty of white space.

One layer helps to keep CAS.
