I don’t know about you guys but I think that clean and simple (aka CAS) is quite tough to do. Actual there are two things I find hard to do and that is the highly embellished designs and the clean and simple designs.
Ok so they sound like they contradict each other.
If I find one hard to do then surely I would find the other easier to do?
On the great ‘Design Continuum’ where highly embellished is at one end of the scale and clean and simple is on the other end, I would place myself nearer to the clean and simple side I
But that doesn’t mean that the clean and simple designs come easy to me, I do still have to work at them and the more I practice the more I’m happy with the designs I come up with.
But for me that is all part of the journey, learning how to create, design and express myself through what I make. Looking at my early work you can see that it has been a rather long journey so far! But I’m still loving it and learning all the time.
My most recent practice in clean and simple design, above, uses the wonderful Unity All About The Journey which you can get over at Make The Day Special. I’ve coloured the stamp with ZIG Art and Graphic Twin pens.
So which are you? Do you lean towards the clean and simple or highly embellished designs? I’m so nosey!
