"Don't Box Me In" ...Why not? Its FUN!


The other day on her post Anita used a very fun design element to break down her "mountain" into a "mole hill." I have tried that technique several times in the past myself and highly recommend one tries it. I found that not only was it fun thing to do but that also the results were very visually pleasing. The grid can be as large or as small as one desires. Also, the grid boxes can be in whatever shape or arrangement that suits your fancy. Be loose and enjoy. In the example above I drew my boxes in first and then filled them with images. I was reading Danny Gregory's book The Creative License at the time and decided to combine an EDM of sorts into my composition. Hope you enjoy!
