Default WT257 - Odds Are (02/11/10)

Odds are you'll have fun with this challenge. And odds are you've heard of the design "rule" of odds. An odd number of anything is usually most visually pleasing in design. So....five brads would look better than six for instance. Three flowers looks better than two. There are always exceptions but today, I'm challenging you to focus on the odds and show me how you use them on a project. So that's 1,3,5,7,9,11...and so on.

Odds are....you'll love your result.

Please remember to WT257 in your keywords section and post a link back here. We'd all love to see your work. Please link only newly uploaded designs for this challenge to keep the links manageable. And we want to get you stamping!

My sample: Sending Love


WT257 Gallery Submissions


Happy creating and thanks for playing the odds!

Julia

Julia, I never knew that "an odd number of anything is usually most visually pleasing in design". That must be why when using brads or buttons, I usually end up using an odd number (3 or 5). So I must already be odd too. Thanks for this challenge. Anxious to try this out.

Fun challenge, Julia....and one that wasn't too tough! : )

My main image is the butterfly, but one is an odd number too! Lots of punching and gluing, but no stamping.

Good to be reminded about the odds rule. Now I have to try to finish my real world chores so I can play with my stamps again. Loving seeing all the above creations and hope to join in later.
