    Hi everyone! You made it to February! You deserve a gold medal! Yellow gold, rose gold, whatever you prefer... I'm happy to bring you this month's style challenge and this month is all about metallics.
    I won't bore you with scientific groups of metals, alloys and their properties but think of the range of golds & silvers of jewellery; chrome & brass finishes of modern furniture, fixtures and appliances; and even the antique and more masculine rusted iron, tarnished copper and steel possibilities this gives your page.

    I'm looking forward to seeing a range of pages in the gallery featuring metallic sheens & elements this month! From full-on, heavy with metal pages (fortunately in the digi world they won't really be heavy but think the scrap-art version of heavy metal band, Metallica) to Metalicious (that I'm thinking is more the Beyonce end of my completely made-up metal layouts scale!)

    For this challenge, please use at least 5 metallic elements, alphas or papers.
    You are welcome to recolour items or apply styles.




    I'm a big believer in anything the paper scrappers can do, we can do digitally so this month, my sample page is inspired by the foil transfer technique (using a Minc or similar machine) in the paper world

    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 February 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! 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).

    Either way, you have more than enough & if it looks metal-ish that's good enough for me, thanks for playing along :)
