REPEATING shapes, colours, die cuts…

Hello everyone, Gisele here for a little tutorial on making your pages cohesive. Making your eye travel around the page, more visually appealing. This technique is similar to the visual triangle but goes beyond, it’s a continuity to help your card or LO.

In this example, I repeated the colour orange/coral and the 3 leaf shapes of same colour.

In this example the colour aqua/green was repeated around the card and also the circles are repeated with the die cut, the wooden buttons and the enamel dots.

The colour purple was the main repeating element in this page and the floral elements.

Here I repeated the cork elements and the brown in the mating of photos and the strip up top. The adding of the twine also continues the rustic feel of the page.

This next one, orange was my repeating element in the words, puffy heart and die cuts.


This LO, the  repeated stitching, the flairs and the yellow throughout are what makes this page unity.


This next example, the white from die cut, the title and enamel dots are the repeated elements. Also, the chipboard nature elements are repeated: butterflies and bird. You can also see I repeated some words or small phrases too.


In this last example, I have repeated the tags, florals and butterflies.

So when I am designing my pages or cards, I keep repeating either shapes, same colours , die cuts… It brings a cohesiveness to your page or card and more eye pleasing too. If you add all different elements they do not create unity as there is too many variables. I hope this short tutorial has helped you to create your next page or card.
