Step Description
1 The first thing you need to do, is to establish your center or plum line on the page. Draw a line, either with your ruler, or in this case, by eye. Leave ¼” (6mm) on the top and bottom of the page.
2 Divide the plum line in half and place a mark. This marks the center line.
3 We will be drawing what is called, a 10-headed proportion. So you will divide your line into 10 equal sections, or at 1 ½” (3.8cm) apart. I have numbered them 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and I’ll do the same thing on the bottom 6 , 7, 8, 9, 10.
