RULE OF 3’s- art journal spread TUTORIAL

 In Davenparty

G’day Creatives!


Staring at a blank page in your journal is scary right?


Well, not ANYMORE! For just 4 easy payments of 9.95… haha


No, there’s no catch here, just a simple-to-follow tutorial on how to create an interesting and visually harmonious art journal spread using the Rule of Threes. Thirds? Same difference 🙂


Enjoy the video tutorial, share your creations on social media and let us know how you bent the rules and re-interpreted the spreads! Also, good luck trying to stop creating pages this way, It’s the only way I’ve been able to string a spread together since I made this video… 😀

    Fabulous and Love this idea as a springboard for a page you are so talented.I now need to Google Rainbow Pops as I have not heard of them i think they are known as Fabs over here in Bonnie Scotland!Also as it’s so cold over here we would only eat maybe a few in the Summer not every day !!

    Thanks again James I so remember going to the pool with my sisters and rainbow paddle pops were my favourite paddle pops along with lemonade icy poles, I loved doing this page and remembering inspired now to do a childhood memory journal for my family.
