and  don't forget each week we share a another readers challenge for you to take part in... so read take a read and join in!

Welcome to Week 7 in our Design Principles Readers Challenge.  Each week we’ll be posting information about a different design concept, together with sketches from Becky Fleck at Pagemaps, and our design team, that work to demonstrate the concept.  We’d love you to join in by creating your own layouts, either using any one of Becky’s sketches OR creating your own design that showcases that week’s design principle.  This week we are looking at the Z theory.
Please EMAIL your pages or cards to us by next Tuesday 3rd July to appear in our Readers Challenge blog post.
Please try and use products supplied by Aussie Scrap Source brands (you’re quite spoiled for choice there!).
Our favourite layout each week (as voted for by our design team) will win a prize pack of Aussie Scrap Source goodies!

WEEK 7: Flow – the Z Theory 
When we design a page, ultimately we want to be able to control where the viewers eye lands, and where it travels. The premise of the Z theory is a simple one and is based on the theory that western cultures read from left to right.   If you overlay your page with an imaginary Z, placing the important elements along the z and its intersections can create a more dynamic page.  The eye will naturally follow the path of the Z.   You can use this rule on its own or alongside the rule of thirds to create many successful designs.  In advertising or website design, the ‘call to action’ would be at the end of the ‘Z’ as that’s where the eye stops.
Be aware of the way your eye moves over the following layouts from our design team, and the two sketches we have provided by way of inspiration this week.



Hope we get to see a heap of fantastic pages by you all. It's never to late to join in on our readers challenges!

Thanks for popping by ...Miss wally xxx

HI! so good to see your layouts again, and thank you for the info about the z concept.. I had never really thought about that, but it does make sense...

I think your fussy cutting looks fabulous, all the layers too... I did have a giggle at the lazy egg layers though, I have chooks like that too.. but the chooks are great fun for kids!!
and thank you so very much for the Hambly RAK, I will cherish the products knowing that they are not in production any more..
and I am off to email you!!
thanks again!
