Using Dina Wakley Media products, Megan Whisner Quinlan teaches you how the design principle of repetition can be used to create a whimsical Journal spread.

Instructions 

Exploring repetition can be a great way to have fun on your mixed media spreads. Faces are one of the most emotive images we can use, and in this project, images of the face are repeated to tell a story. Follow along to see how to create this whimsical spread.

Step 1: Stamp your focal point from the Make Things Happen Stamp Set onto white cardstock. Choose a phrase and stamp onto the same page and cut out.
