Art Journal Challenge #9: Negative Space and new goods

I’m sure you’re all familiar with the concept of white space or negative space. Some of our members are masters at using white space in traditional layouts.

We have to remember that negative space is not just the ’empty bits’, it has shape. You can use it to:
– focus on a subject
– provide balance
– create a resting place for the eyes – ‚breathing room’
– help flow

A lot of negative space can look sophisticated and bring drama and power to your page.

As suggested I have also provided an optional theme for your inspiration.

Use negative space for effect in your art journal layout.

OPTIONAL THEME: Breath or Breathe
