In my best musical voice.... "Hey good-lookin, Whatcha got cookin? How's about cookin somethin' up with me?" Somethin' scrappin' that is... hehe Today your challenge is to cook up a layout following my MOC recipe. Start with 1 solid paper for your background. It must be a solid. It can have texture but no patterns. Add 1 BIG photo - NO OTHER PHOTOS ALLOWED. It must take up at least 1/2 of your page. It can be bigger, but I must still be able to see some of the solid background paper. Add 1 or more shape(s) (rectangles, squares, circles, triangles, hexagons, scallops, chevrons) to your layout and fill the shape(s) with solid or pattern paper as desired. These can be paper layers, but I must still be able to see the solid background. Spice it up by adding 1 or more word art(s) to your layout. Sprinkle on ONLY 1 scatter. (FYI: Paint is NOT a scatter). Top off your layout with 3 or more elements in addition to what you have already added, but remember you can ONLY have 1 scatter and 1 photo TOTAL on your layout. Finish your layout to taste with shadowing, journaling, a date or an awesome title. These are all optional. Add what you want from what's listed in this step, but NOTHING ELSE can be added! Credits: Clean and Simple n28 templates and Joy Bundle by Sabrina's Creations Solid Bg paper: white; 1 big photo; 4 hexagon shapes; word art (for title) and word strip; 1 star scatter; 3+ elements: ampersand, flower, button, foliage, bow; Finish work: shadowing and date And that's it! To recap: 1. Solid background - must still be able to see some of it when your layout is complete. 2. 1 Big Photo - NO OTHER PHOTOS ALLOWED 3. 1 or more shapes of your choice 4. 1 or more word arts 5. 1 scatter ONLY 6. 3 or more elements of your choice - The shapes, word art and scatter do NOT count as one of your 3 elements. 7. Shadow, journal, date or title if you want - NOTHING ELSE PLEASE! Please remember the standard MOC guidelines: Your page must be a new page in order to count for the Month of Challenges. Your page must be posted in three places: Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site). Posted in your page layout 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. 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). Thanks for playing along, I can't wait to see what y'all have cooked up with this recipe! ************************************************************** I will be hosting this recipe challenge as a speed scrap on Thursday, January 18th @ 2 pm EST/11 am PST and can answer additional questions during that time.
