Design - whether graphic, industrial, interior or architecture - is the process of taking unrelated parts and putting them together into an organized unit. Each discipline works with solids and voids, and each must respond to three questions: What are the elements I have to work with? Where o these elements go? What structure is necessary so they go together?

White space (visual arts), are the portions of a page left unmarked. It is the "glue" that holds everything together.Graphic designer Alex W. White said "One definition of good design is the balance between the designer's self-indulgence and monotony.

So today's challenge is to use white space. I've always thought of it as wasted space, or I am inclined to journal in the space not used.

Please post your layouts in the Gallery for us to admire.

It's still Sunday here in Maryland but I read this anyway. I tend to make LOs that are > Minimalism is any design or style wherein the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect.

Thanks for the challenge Andrea. I HATE white space so this really makes me think outside the box. I always want to fill every little piece of blank space with something. I really must try to do more of these.
