Creating a Focal Point

*Originally Published on Craftwell’s Blog*

Hey Crafty friends! It’s me, Tyra and I’m here to share how I used the beautiful dies from Teresa Collins’ A Girl’s Best Friend set to create a focal point.

A focal point is simply the center of activity or focus in a design that you would like to draw the eye to.   In each of my projects I used one die and a contrasting color or pattern to create a design with a single focal point.  Let’s see what I created!

1. In this first card I used the single gemstone die in a contrasting color against a backdrop of neutrals to create a focal point.

2. For my second card I used the beautiful star plate die on a navy starry patterned paper to create a focal point against the pastel colored elements in the card.

3.  For my last project, I created a shadow box featuring the beautiful bow die in a pretty pink pattern that contrasts well with the gray and white neutral background.

These three projects are examples of how you can use just one single die and contrasting color to create a striking design!  I hope I have inspired you today! Take care and thanks so much for stopping by the blog! Tyra 🙂
