Did you know odd numbered arrangements are nearly always better in a design than even numbered?
Even numbered arrangements create symmetry; the brain happily groups items into pairs and then stops analysing what it's looking at.
Odd numbered arrangements force movement and visual interest. This is because the brain keeps looking to find items to 'pair' together hence forcing you to keep looking around the picture.
Why not try it out for yourself?
Hence the 5 candles and the 3 Happy sentiments!
BTW - before anyone contradicts me! Yes, even numbered arrangements can also work well but in a different way by focusing the brain to look at the centre of a design.
I'll have to make a card with an even numbered grouping.
Not today though, as I'm off out for the evening - it's the end of term jolly.
School's out for the summer!!!
I can hide the alarm clock for the next 6 weeks.
