Hi there, it's Pam here sharing and a design tip with you that I love to do. Sometimes when I get in a scrap rut, i just need to go back to some of my favorite design techniques, repetition! This is when I use a shape or element over and over to create a design. I will often use a photo or two to replace the shape. You might have used this before, but here are a few examples by me of repetition!
My first page is using circles over and over in a row to create a stoplight like feeling to my page. This goes along with my soccer theme and how soccer is like stop and go sometimes. I used my Coluzzle to cut out large and small circles and used a few photo in the middle of the circles.
In this next example, I was inspired by a Studio Calico stamp and also Amy Butler paper - two companies that I LOVEEE!!. I created my design and cut it out with scissors. I also replaced some of the shapes with photos.
My next page is an oldie but a goodie! Created back in 2006, I use strips of paper over and over in the background to make make my main photo pop! I like the effects of small strips of paper!
Here is another page created a while back in 2007 using repeating photos in the top and the bottom. This is a digital page which I really don't do to much of anymore, but still a favorite layout from back then!!
Here is one more repetition using both paper and photos. I created the text squares in photoshop and printed them off. I also used photos intermixed with the squares.
My last example is a layout (there is a link to the template here) where I used repeated the flower design over and over all over the layout. This created a neat place to "peek" my photo from!
I hope you have enjoyed this tip that I used! :) Have a great weekend!!
