    Hello and happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe we are past the halfway point in this year’s MOC already! Crazy! Today I have a challenge called ‘Elements on a Path’ and all I want you to do is create a path using elements. You can have a literal path with stitching or a doodled shape and then add a bunch of elements (at least 15) that follow that path OR you can create a path with elements alone. You must be able to see the path clearly when you are done, so don’t just throw a bunch of elements on your background and call it done. I want to be able to see the path clearly. I have included some samples below. In these samples you can clearly see elements following a circle or an ampersand or even a heart.

    I have also created a Pinterest board with some more samples to give you ideas: https://www.pinterest.com/kscrappy/elements-on-a-path/

    And here is my layout:

    Recap of Challenge Requirements:

    1. Create a path with elements. You must use at LEAST 15 elements to create your path. Elements can be things like, buttons, sequins, brads, alphas, stitches, paint splats, brushes, word snips, etc.

    2. The path your elements follow must be clearly visible. You may add another element such as a doodled or stitched path under your elements to clarify your path.

    General Requirements:

    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).

    Clarifications will go here. :)

    Question: Can we have elements on the page that do not follow the path?

    Answer: Yes, as long as your path is still clearly visible

    I already felt like I HAD to do the stitched circle, and now that there are 2 more like that I super have to. I'm sorry if I'm a copycat, but that's just so stunning!

    I totally get it! It took all my will power to try something different because the stitched circle samples were my favorites too! :)
