January 14 : Clean & Simple with Texture (Style Challenge) Hello and Happy MOC! We are almost to the half way point and I’m excited that it is my turn to host a challenge. Today’s challenge is something that I just love creating and can’t wait to see what you come up with. I’m a basic scrapper, preferring minimalism, so I adore clean and simple pages - especially clean and simple pages that have dimension and visual interest and texture! Things like stitching, cork, wood veneer, washi tape, gesso, and vellum really make these pages come alive and this style simply makes me happy! Your challenge today is to create a clean & simple page that has texture as a focal point. Here are the requirements: 1 - At least 50% of your page must be empty space (i.e. clean space, white space, empty space). 2 - You need to choose one texture from the following list and have it be a prominent element on your page: stitching, cork, gesso/paint, wood veneer, washi tape, fabric, and vellum. That's it! Here is the clean and simple with texture layout I created for this challenge: I used Paislee Press' Here We Go, Amy Wolff's Mega Paper Pack, Sahin Designs Garden Party, Pink Reptile Designs Gesso It and Mommyish's Enjoy The Ride. I hope you have fun creating, can't wait to see your clean and simple layout with texture, and cheers to all of us enjoying this year’s MOC! To recap the requirements for this Clean & Simple with Texture challenge: 1 - At least 50% of your page must be empty space (i.e. clean space, white space, empty space). 2 - You need to choose one texture from the following list and have it be a prominent element on your page: stitching, cork, gesso/paint, wood veneer, washi tape, fabric, and vellum. Remember these important points to qualify for the MOC prizes: Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places: 1. Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site). 2. Posted in your page thread you created in the MOC Layouts Folder. You should have one post per completed challenge page. If you complete all 31 challenges, your thread should contain 31 posts. Please do not comment in the participants’ page threads so we can keep them clean. 3. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish. Pages must contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers).
