I like to use my graphic design knowledge when I’m creating art journal spreads. The elements and principles of design are easy to learn. They can help you create pleasing layouts that express your ideas.
Shapes are an essential design element. The types of shapes you use can express different emotions and moods.
Geometric shapes are organized and efficient.
Squares rectangles are honest, orderly, rational, and formal.
Vertical rectangles are strong, while horizontal ones are peaceful.
Circles are graceful, warm, comfortable, and perfect.
Triangles are strong, energetic, and action-packed
Triangles sitting on an edge are stable, while triangles sitting on a point are unstable.
Organic shapes are pleasing, comforting, & spontaneous.
They can be be abstract or realistic shapes.
