Step Description
1 The first thing you need to do is to establish your centerline on the page. Draw this line with your ruler or in this case, by eye. Leave ¼” (6mm) on the top and bottom of the page.
2 Divide that line in half and place a mark. This marks your center or plum line.
3 We will be drawing what is called a 10-headed proportion, so you will divide your plum line into ten equal sections, or at approximately 1 ½” (3.8cm) apart.
