Week 287: TOGETHER

Together is the nicest place to be and the gallery will soon be filled with entries, all united by CAS design!  Let's see how you interpret this cue!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:

  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)
Let's take a look at what the design team and this week's guest designer created for inspiration!

A black & white sentiment with a twist and pop of colour creates interest on a CAS design.
