This week's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge is to use at least one triangle on a card. You may use a real triangle (stamped, sponged) or images that are have an overall triangular profile or embellishments arranged in triangles. You may even choose to make a triangular card base!
In my example, there are essentially two triangles: the trio of rhinestones and the overall shape of the stamped area.
Triangles are extremely versatile design elements. First, by arranging three elements in a triangle, you automatically relate all three items to each other, which gives a sense of unity within a design. Second, triangular designs can create a feeling of stability and harmony, especially when the bottom of the triangle is parallel to the bottom of the card, as above. Triangles can also create movement and energy on a card, especially when they are obtuse (with one angle greater than 90 degrees).
So give triangles a go this week!
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed.
2. Use one or more triangles on your card. These can be definite triangle shapes or implied in the design by arrangement or the shape of the card.
3. Post your card somewhere on the Internet and link to it using the button in the sidebar of Simplicity.
4. Most importantly, HAVE FUN!!!!
