Magic Number Three Tips

Design is something I used to really struggle with. However, after reading an article about using page elements in three's, creating pages became a lot easier. Using three's makes pages flow and gives them a "finished" look. I hope this concept helps you as much as it did me!

Things you can use in threes are:
  • embellishments,
  • digital brushes,
  • photos, and
  • words or phrases.

Try dividing up your journaling into three sections by using ribbon or creating 3 lines of brads. Or try dividing your page into 3 columns.

I have three photos, three pink flowers, and three words for my title and subtitle. Oh, and did you notice how I used three different fonts?

What else can you use in three's on your layout?
