Remember how your math teacher said you’d use math every day for the rest of your life?
Well, as a scrapbooker, you definitely do! You measure, you count, and if you try out
today’s tip, you’ll apply your math skills even more!
It’s time to take a trip back to geometry class, because we’re going to talk about what we
call the triangle rule. In a nutshell, here it is: After you finish a pattern and you’re ready
to add some accents, arrange them so they form a triangle.
When creating a layout you create a triangle across the two pages.Here’s a layout featuring our Magical paper packet. Can you spot the triangle?
Here it is!
See how the deer, oars, and punched circles create a triangle?
The little flags above the three circles also help form that corner of the triangle.
The triangle rule is great because it helps you balance your pages by giving you guidance for where to place your embellishment clusters, while also leaving you lots of different options to
play with. If all of your layouts were perfectly symmetrical, they’d look nice, but there
wouldn’t be much room for creativity. By creating triangles, which can be all sorts of different sizes and dimensions, you are still creating a layout that’s pleasing to the eye, but you get a lot more variety!
We hope this makes adding accents to your scrapbook pages a little bit easier.
