Hello & Happy August! It is (amazingly) time again for another set of new challenges. I say this all the time, but, where does the time go?! I've had quite the busy past few months and life just doesn't want to slow down! I tend to be a cleaner/more simplistic scrapper. But I do love a good mixed media page and adding in texture. Digital texture is the best kind - no mess! So for this month's challenge I decided to combine the two: make a clean mixed media page. Use your mixed media tools - stamps, paints, gesso, stitches, etc. - on a page that has plenty of white/empty space. Here is my page as an example: Hope you have fun and happy scrapping! As always, please remember the monthly challenge rules: Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread. The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month: 2 challenges = 10% off 4 challenges = 20% off 6 challenges = 30% off If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad (new prize starting with the July challenges)! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).
