Day Five: Hexagons


Amy: Hexies...oh how I adore hexies!  I cut the smaller hexagon pattern and layered it onto my jar die and did some simple stamping.  The blue hexagon pattern is cut from a 12 x 12 sheet of paper.  Actually both started as 12 x 12's.  The love contrast of the sizes and colors.




Julie: I am FOREVER happy that hexagons came into the scrappy world and I HOPE.THEY.NEVER.LEAVE. ever ever ever!!!! I love love love them!! And every time a scrappy company releases some hexagons, I am ALL OVER IT!!!!! For my page, I love the denim background so much, I didn't want to lose that in my page, so I used hexagons as an accent on my page .... I cut these from a 12x12 sheet of My Minds Eye paper!



Yvonne: This is my fave photo of my niece and nephew to date so even though I've scrapped this photo on a traditional layout, I wanted to create an altered canvas to display at home.


I adhered scrunched up wrapping tissue to the base of the 12 x 12 canvas, then adhered some leftover diecut letters [see top right]. Then I applied fiber paste with various stencils. When that dried, I played around with paint colours and dabbed with wet rag to make sure the paint got into the grooves to define the patterns on the base. Then a bloom and some swirl rub-ons and I have a lovely display piece! :)
