Theory of Three's

The design theory of three's has been around for ages and ages.  Sets of three used in design give your eye a place to travel to.  It is physically appealing.  I rule that I tried to follow when I made the following card.  Tilda on a windy day, wouldn't you say?  Notice the three colored panels behind my main design as well as the three flowers, and the bow, button, and charm all of which sticks to the theory of three's.  I also used just three primary colors-purple, pink, and white.  Again I colored my image with my Copic Markers and used Flower Soft for my flowers in my design.  I love the diminsion this adds!  The other flowers are from Wild Orchard and the charm was bought off of Ebay.  Love, Elle
