So we’ve made it through six principles of design you can use for making sharp scrapbook pages! And we wrapped up with a great principle—flow—because it calls upon you to put everything you’ve learned so far to work. In the next lesson we’ll begin focusing on the key parts of a scrapbook page—look for that lesson in a few days.

    I am really enjoying these lessons, Debbie. I found this lesson brought together all the answers to questions I had with the previous lessons. Sort of wrapped it all up for me so that I could really understand.

    Thanks so much for these lessons. They help a whole lot in making my layouts more cohesive.

      Oh, thanks for the note! I’m so glad the lessons are useful–and, I know what you mean about this lesson. When I was writing it I felt like I understood things better, myself.

    I hadn’t thought of circling as a way to draw the viewer in before. But now I see it’s effectiveness. Thanks for these great tips.

    So glad that you gave us such a visual explanation of Flow. This is the first time that I have seen each category explained in detail. This is my third trip back to review a favorite aspect that includes a representative of each. Love the triangle, diagonal, as well oval descriptives. Thank you again for your kindness.
