Hey there! I'm so glad you stopped by today! Today I'm starting a new blogging series called Let's Talk Tuesday
The first topic for Let's Talk Tuesday is lines...
Lines you ask? Yes, lines. When I create a layout the first thing I think of is where do I want my line of focus and which direction do I want my line to go. Then I start creating a line with my photos, embellishments, and journaling across that line on my background paper.
My goal is to always have a line (or lines) to draw the readers eye across the page. I also try to add the focal point of the layout (usually the photo) directly into the line or very close to the lines.
I drew lines in Photoshop to a few of my older layouts to show you what I'm talking about. Let me show you some examples of a horizontal lines:
Next, let's talk about diagonal lines. This is probably my favorite way to design and the way I design most often. Starting at one corner and working my way to the opposite corner with the focal points of the layouts falling very close or directly on the line.
Here are a few projects that start on the top left corner and go all the way to the bottom right corner:
Here are a couple of examples of layouts that start at the top right and go to the bottom left:
Sometimes when I create layouts that are a little more complex I create more than one line. On these two layouts I created three lines with my focal points laying on at least one of the lines:
