JFJ 15 for 30 Challenge - Day 6: Straight Lines

At times, we want to think about the layout of our pages and create visually interesting spaces that hold our attention. Dividing the space of our pages in various ways is one way to consciously consider the layout and composition of our pages. Straight lines section off areas allowing us to set different purposes for the different areas. Horizontal and vertical lines create a lot of stability on our pages, and diagonal lines create dynamism and movement. We can use these characteristics to our advantage as we explore composition and layout.

Experiment with straight lines for fifteen minutes sectioning off areas, creating grids, and playing around with stable and dynamic layouts. Use a single material or several materials. Work on a single page, or spread your lines across several pages.

Once you've responded, you're encouraged to post some of your results, and don’t forget to mark your posts with #jfj15for30.
