Workflow Wednesday: The Power of 3s Design Concept

talking about the power of threes or odd numbers as a design concept when creating planner pages, Bible journaling, and scrapbooking.
Did you know that THREE is my favorite number? Did you know that using odd numbers is a design concept? It's true, a lot of home decorators use odd numbers when clustering items together. It's why candle sets usually come in sets of three.

Three is the most popular number to use and it's the number I use most often when I'm looking at the design of my projects from planner decorating to Bible journaling to scrapbooking.

It really is my favorite number, I even have three kiddos and it's the perfect size family for me and my hubby.

talking about the power of threes or odd numbers as a design concept when creating planner pages, Bible journaling, and scrapbooking.

So, I wanted to show you what I mean by using 3s in my designs, by pointing out the threes in a planner page. I like to repeat the same concept three times around a page.

  • I used the woodgrain and peach washi tapes three times
  • I used woodgrain elements/stickers three times - the clipboard, "scheduled" arrow & "don't forget" arrow
  • The three circle elements/stickers all have the same blue shade for the upper half of the sticker - "Don't Forget" sticker, the layering sticker that says "chiro 3:50pm", & the gumball sticker with the gray leaf

When I think in threes it makes it really easy to design a page as I grab three similar stickers and layer them around the page... usually in a visual triangle like I talked about last week
