School of Design: Movement/Flow

Hi all!

Summer School is still happening over on the My Favorite Things Blog today. Today’s lesson is all about Movement/Flow.


Movement/Flow is the arrangement of the elements on a card to create a sense of motion by using lines, shapes, forms, and textures that cause the eye to move over the design. Creating a visual triangle with sentiment, paper, and focal point is a great way to show movement as well!

Here’s a card I created based on this design concept.

Check out all those banner pieces. I pieced them together to create the lines to look like they are moving, kinda shooting into the card from the left side.

Some of the banners (cut with the Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner STAX Die-namics) have texture. Others that were cut with the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics are just layered together to extend the line.

Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see who else was inspired by today’s lesson to make a project.

And here’s a list of MFT products I used to make today’s card:
