Hi, Friends!  Chere here with a video tutorial on the “squint’ rule.  I know it sounds like I’m making that up, but I promise I’m not!  It’s a real thing that will help you create balance on your layouts and help eliminate weird spaces that are hard to see without using this time saver.

I use this rule on every layout and every pattern I make.  I hope that it’s something you can use in your creations, and that it serves you well.

Here is my sample layout before I used the squint rule, and then after I used it.

I hope this helps when you’re trying to find trapped white space and applying balance to your page.  Happy creating!
