TLC414 ~ Play With Balance ~ (1/28/13)
Hello everyone.....It's my turn to host this weeks Technique Lover's Challenge!!! As stampers and crafters, I'm sure you have worked with your stamps, images, die cuts, etc. to create a balanced design. You don't want an image too big or too small for the space you are decorating. However, if you pair something too big and something too small, you will actually create balance!!! Soooo, for this weeks challenge we are going to Play With Balance....I want you to use a stamp, image, diecut, etc. too big and one too small to create a perfectly scaled design!!!

1.You can add the small image to the side of the large one or add it right on top.
2. You can mix stamped images and diecuts, stickers, or embellies

My Sample

TLC414 Too Cute

I'm thinking this qualifies for the TLC challenge - CAS205 FS - Gail. . If it doesn't Joan, I will delete this.

I CASEd a card from our Featured Stamper's gallery and used a small scale floral stamp instead of dp. Thanks for another fun challenge! CASEd for Bonnie

Greywolf 01-28-2013 11:05 AM

Joan, a good challenge and exercise in composition. I hope to give it a try since I rarely think about balance - it either happens automatically or ... it doesn't. Ha!

Off to take a look-see at the gallery.

I used the TLC414 scale challenge to case Mamaxsix's pretty card for the CAS105 Challenge: //www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...;ppuser=132623

I hope I got the bird to tree balance. The birds would have been way to large in these trees if they were not above them on embossed "wires".

I'm not sure I've got the balance perfect. Normally I would use a larger font for the sentiment. I kinda like it though. Thanks for the challenge, Joan.

For Gail

I used this card by mamasix as inspiration.

Thanks! Enjoy your day!

Can this work? This is a pretty big stamp image with the leaves (and truthfully I think it's upside-down, but I decided not to care!). I created a visual 'triangle' with the darker small word stamp and the stamped washi tape to balance it all out.
