In need of a layout idea to try?
This week I picked two design principles and made them the crux of my scrapbook pages.
Any time you’ve run out of ideas you can pick a design principle and let it inspire the direction of your page.
Not only can this get you moving forward on a layout, but it can also be a great way to practice or explore the design principle.
So my tip today is: Pick a design principle and use it to jump start and inspire your design.
The last time I did this I chose the principle of harmony, and in the process I learned more about my own taste and visual preferences.
This time I chose two principles — leading the eye and anchoring — and combined them to make the main design elements of both of the pages I scrapbooked in the newest Paperclipping video. I then showed (in the video) comparisons to other pages where those principles were used more subtly, or where I took the complete opposite approach.
The 6 total layouts I featured in the video show you just a sampling of how versatile design is. And that’s just one reason why design is so super cool.
So, do you want to try this design principle exploration?
You can choose your own design principle to focus on today, or you can watch my video and go with the design principles I chose. You can scraplift my layouts, or you can use the principles and the ideas to inspire your own design.
You must have an active Paperclipping Membership to watch the video.
Shine On and have fun paperclipping!
