3. Vary the scale. While color and shape are easier to get a grasp on, scale is a bit more complicated. There are three different sizes of scale: small, medium and large. When mixing prints, try not to choose more than one of the same scale size; multiple patterns of the same scale often result in a one-way-ticket to Cluttersville...well, unless you're a total master like Betsy Burnham, that is. The five fabrics in this photo all fall under the small-scale category. Notice how your eye can't really decide which one to look at? My point exactly.

avoid choosing too many of the same scale size; multiple scales work better; this is an example of too many small scales and your eye doesn't know where to go.

Vary the scale. Means the size of the print nd pattern. Scales are of three types. Small, med, large. Try having diff scales so eyes can move. For example here , all the prints being a medium scale result In a mess.
