CASology 187 - Spin
This week's CASology Cue Card is Spin!
Oh, this is going to be a fun one - so many great ways to interpret this cue card! I chose one close to my heart - a plane's propeller.
When you're making a CAS card, knowing when to stop is the most important thing - generally, the earlier, the better; but you still want it to be interesting!
I started with the Sugar Pea Designs plane and the Papertrey sentiment both in black. Ultimate CAS (and my favourite CAS - one image, one sentiment). You can stop there. Sometimes that's all you need. But this time it was boring.
So I added the MFT (You Move Me (retired)) sun. Better. Still dull.
Clouds? Hmm. Need 3 (for balance and all that). Too busy? How about a REALLY light colour (WPlus9 Fairy Dust)? Will it be too much? What should I do?
Added them - and in fact the scene is much better. But still CAS. Stop there or have more clouds on the card base? What colour card base? White helps to extend the white space around the focal point.
The result is a light, airy card that has a lot on it, but still feels perfectly CAS!
Now it's your turn!
