Challenge #173 - 6/6 - All about 6 {June 6 - June 19}

Going around in Circles

Did you know that 6 circles of any size when put together will make a complete circle with no gap in it? So you can guess where this is leading - the date for the challenge is 6/6 so we're going to use six punched out circles, buttons or brads and use it on the page in a circle.
Easy almost too easy so lets add something else in six, flowers, butterflies, bugs or anything that works for your page and 6 patterned papers.
So that's :
6 circles made into a circle
6 similar embellishments
6 patterned papers.

Janet M - I think doing your own challenge is a challenge in it's self, I really had fun with this one though. I'm sure my daughter will be impressed to see the picture of her up dressed in her Halloween costume as a geek.
I used 6 pattern papers in the frame on the picture.
6 circles into a circle
6 brads
6 modes of transporation
6 in the title and on the speed sign.

Elizabeth: I love working with circles. This was a good one! I don't know if I cheated by using the brads in the shape of a circle, but I thought it did qualify the instructions. :) Plus I used 6 pictures shaped as circles, so that counts for a bonus!

Anna-Karin: Thank you for this clever challenge Janet! I cut six circles from six different patterned papers, arranged them into a circle and stitched around each one. The big white circle was scratched into the Core’dinations cardstock to reveal the inner core. For the six embellishments, I used stars and gave each one a different texture (UTEE embossing, flocking, crackle paint, ink, glitter and Flower Soft). The title of the layout translates ‘Eyelashes’ and the journaling is about all the attention Anton get for his blue eyes and long eyelashes.

Fi - This was definitely a challenge for me this week, I felt I was going around in circles trying to get my punched circles to look remotely like circles. I punched the polka dots from Kaiser Seaside Collection and adhered these onto a circle that I punched from acetate. I made 6 of these and raised and 3D'd them on my page. I have used 6 patterned papers, 6 birds and 6 flowers to complete my lots of 6. I cut the photo into a circle and overlayed with a LYB printed circle overlay. I will post more details on my blog. Looking forward to see what other come up with.

Debbi T: This was a serious challenge for me! For some reason, the even number 6 really stumped me. I managed to use the required six of everything--six brads, six rub-ons, six chipboard numbers, six pearls, even a six-word title (if you read 1,000 as "one thousand"), except that I used 3 pieces of burlap--but I did use 6 staples to adhere them. I love a challenge, though, so I definitely had fun!

Debbie F: I don't use circles as design elements all that often, so this was a challenge for me. I dug into my first Studio Calico kit that I'd been hoarding for a few years. I created the splatters with black acrylic paint by running my fingers along the paint dipped brush. I even used a stamp that was still in the package! I added 6 star stickers, six bling circles, and 12 other stickers (title letters and star strip). Fun challenge!

To play, and have a shot at being chosen for our How Awesome Is Too Awesome Hall of Fame and creating as a HMITM Guest Designer, just share your layout through Mr. Linky below!

We can't wait to see what you create!

Okay, am I allowed to fix my link? I think I botched it up... or do you all prefer a link to the picture or the actual blog posting?

Janet M said...

Actual blog post so we can comment - thanks

OK, this was truly a challenge for me, but I did not allow it to defeat me. Awesome challenge!!!

Wow who would think circles would be so difficult lol
Mine is a looser interpretation but I enjoyed it eventually
