Default CAS23 - Show us your artwork! (7/13/09)

What is CAS?
CAS is an acronym for Clean and Simple.


There are different ways people view CAS. It is very subjective. There is no list of rules that will fit everyone’s personal definition. The following are possible guidelines, only. Please do not feel afraid of playing in the CAS challenge or debate with yourself if you’ve created a CAS card. If it is a CAS card to you, put CAS in the keyword box.


1. Clean: the design is uncluttered with lots of white or open space. Simple: having a clear focal point without a lot going on to detract from it.

OR
2. simple in design regardless of the number of embellishments or how long it takes to color, stitch or to use a special technique

OR
3. can be copied and mass produced fairly quickly… usually without a lot of coloring, layers, embellishments, tools and/or techniques

OR
4. any combination of the above

Now on with the show!

This week we are having an inspiration challenge.
(www.art.com)
This art site is HUGE! If you are overwhelmed by the size of this site, or you are concerned about running across questionable images you'd rather not see, I have linked some selections in post #2. Since these are links, please link your inspiration piece into the comments section when uploading your card.You'll find 5 floral, 4 animal, and 4 children's images. There is some overlap in the last 2 categories.

Keyword: CAS23

DT samples to help you get started with ideas:

Ann's Card

Harriet's Card

Lisa's Card

Jen's Card

CAS23 Gallery


Uploading: Remember the keyword is without spaces. Use a comma between keywords with a space after each comma.

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

1. Open 2 windows: One window for your card and one for this thread.
