Using repetition in a layout is a great way to embellish your page without a lot of thought or time! 3 Bird’s Graceful Season is a great collection to do this with.
Katrina here to share a “Rainy Day” layout. April showers bring May flowers, right?! I used a lot of repetition on this page and if you look you can see it easily.
The first obvious thing is the umbrella theme. I cut a couple of different umbrella shapes out with my Silhouette Cameo using multiple pattern papers. Then I moved them around until I got an order of the way I wanted them on the page. I knew I wanted one to offset the picture, so I tucked it in the corner. If you look at the picture area, all the layers seem to have movement from the left to the right. The 3D Embellishment Kit helped with that feel of movement.
If you notice, the umbrellas also have repeating patterns on them. I placed sequins randomly to replicate rain, but if you look closely they have a repeating theme around the umbrellas. And then I used multiple clouds from the Sticky Sparkly Glitter & Foil Chipboard set. Which, since they are “silver lined” I thought they were perfect!
So, try some repeating on your next layout. It will save you time and you will find that once you start doing it, you may just keep wanting to do it more!
