August 1st Challenge ~~

25 posts in this topic

There are several principles, or "rules" of design that when used effectively allow for pleasing designs. Most designers instinctively know these and don’t think too much about them, but some of us are “design-impaired” and need a little help! We’re going to focus on one of the principles, UNITY. When unity is achieved, all the individual parts come together to form a whole.

There a different ways to achieve unity. One is by REPETITION. So for your challenge…

Repeat an element, texture, shape, etc several times. For example, use tons of buttons! Or repeat a piece of ric rac over and over. Or use a brush in a repetitive manner! While repetition can create unity and interest, don’t overdo it! That can be boring! Try to find a way to keep things interesting by varying your repeated elements just slightly, and don’t let it overpower your page.

Hope you have fun with this and be sure to show us your layouts! :breakdance:

Here's one of my layouts that uses repetition: [url="http://scrapgirls.com.ipbhost.com/index.php?act=module&module=gallery&cmd=si&img=9297"]http://scrapgirls.com.ipbhost.com/index.ph...cmd=si&img=9297[/url]

Sounds like a fun challenge to me. Love your layout, that face is too darling not to scrap repetitively, :).

What a cutie- your daughter is a sweetheart! Fun LO!

And in the [i]"it was meant to be" column[/i], I started on a LO Sunday and found out about this challenge yesterday. A perfect fit. So I finished it last night and posted it today. :disappearing-smilie:

Okay, while I did this layout without thinking of repitition, (the kit used is one of my most favorites so I was having some more fun with it), this is how it ended up. :)

I'm not sure if this is what I was supposed to do (or what you were looking for) .... Not sure if I accomplished "unity" through repetition, but I tried. ;0)

here it goes anyways!!!

I have repetition in the flowers, the tags as well as the simple 2 color scheme.

Here is another layout using repetition. I would appreciate some feedback because I'm not too sure if the page looks [b]TOO [/b] busy, too dark, or if it is an effective use of repetition.

I'm also trying to go outside my comfort zone and "cut/crop" my pictures into circles - rather than my usual rectangles and squares.

I read this challange at the beginning of the month but didn't really do anything with it. I guess the idea of repetition was with my when I did this one the other day! I've repeated the stars motif.
