CAS194 Technique Challenge- COLLAGE (10/29/12)

Please keep the CAS challenges limited to cards only.
Thank you!


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

It's all about the design .
* not the technique
* not the tools
* not the embellishments

It's all about the design .
* Uncluttered
* lots of white or open space
* one main focal point

It's all about the design .

Clean & Simple


Hope everyone had a great week...here's what we got for ya this time...

I have recently started art journaling and doing some mixed media art and one thing that shows up in both is COLLAGE work. I have seen some gorgeous cards that are one-layer beauties but have such a great depth and interesting focal points while still being a CAS card. That is often achieved by collage. SO let's see what you can come up with by collage...either with layers or without!


It's also great to add the keyword: CAS so that you're in two galleries.

Leave some love for our dedicated and enthusiastic design team! Here are some amazing samples to help you get started:

I'm not very good at collage so this really challenged me. I love using those collage stamps as they are so well put together, but when it comes to me mixing and layering different stamps, I struggle! Here's what I came up with:
