Repetition

Repetition-Variation Creates a pattern of similarity that moves the viewer’s eye comfortably through a composition.
It is the most logical of all the Design Principles and the easiest to implement.
Repetition can affect and magnify any of the design elements; color, value, dot, line, shape, volume, texture, space.
Too much Repetition can invite tedium. Too little can result in chaos and perhaps another form of tedium.
