August Technique Challenge

This month's technique challenge is to do a layout where the pictures are in any shape EXCEPT square or rectangle.

I get into that square/rectangle rut a lot, so I thought this would be a good challenge to see what shapes we can come up with! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! The deadline for this challenge is August 31st.

Just a reminder to turn off your siggy's in this thread as well so we can see the layouts better! Smile

Here's mine for this challenge. It was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be, but lots of fun trying to do something "out of the square box". Wink

I really like how you did that - 2 half circles, that's a very neat idea!

Those are both beautiful! MommyCB - is that paper? It looked digital for a minute b/c it is so clean and neat but the shadows make me think paper... either way it looks fantastic and I am impressed. Lol Trina - I like the rectangles behind the circles. You are so creative! and she makes some great faces, too. Smile

Charys, it looks great! I love the idea of the two half circles.

You always take great pictures of your pages. You are either very good or have a good camera. Smile
