Today's Tip - The Visual Triangle

Like all visual arts, scrapbooking is based on some basic design principles such as:


  • The Visual Triangle;
  • Repetition;
  • The Rule of Thirds; and,
  • The Rule of Odds.
Our brains perceive images in familiar shapes. By placing items on our scrapbook pages in a triangle, it allows our eyes to see the page as a whole rather than being distracted by one or two pieces on the page. You can create a visual triangle on your scrapbook layout with photos, embellishments, or event text such as your title, date, and journaling.

When placing embellishments on your next scrapbook page, think of the visual triangle principle and see if you can make it work with your style.
