Abstract Grid | Tutorial



Happy Monday, this is Vee here today with a tutorial for you today!  I have an easy tutorial on how to incorporate an abstract grid as a design element for any project.  You only need a few supplies as listed below:

  1. Pencil
  2. Pen
  3. Ruler or straight edge such as a gift card or scrap paper



I always start each project with my photos and ink and build my layout from there, once I liked the placement of my photo and a small amount of embellishments I secured them in place and left a small amount of white space available for my grid.  I drew my horizontal lines in pencil first and added a love you lots v3 badge button and built the grid around it by adding one vertical line to it.  To complete the look I added  a documented snipsnip diagonal minimal label below that line to anchor the grid to the page.  I prefer the look of the abstract grid more than the conventional "tic tac toe" grid.  To add a little contrast I traced over one horizontal line with my black pro pen. 

I hope you will give this design element a try the next time you have a creative block, it is easy and simple!  Please share your projects in the Evalicious Flickr pool here.  We love seeing your work in the gallery,xo.
