JANUARY 22: Clean & Simple Style Welcome to Day 22 of MOC 2020!!! (can you believe that it's already Day 22???...) Today's theme is my favorite scrapbooking style: CLEAN & SIMPLE I love minimalistic layouts!!! Sometimes less is more and today it's your turn to show this. The challenge for today is to use a minimal amount of elements that complement your photo and force you to focus your eye on a small part of the page. In your clean & simple layout every element "counts", so take your time to find out what works best. Concentrate on one small area of your page - remember that you only need a small part "decorated" to create the clean & simple look! You can work with a simple frame around your picture, some paint or splatter and a few additional elements - usually only a few elements are needed to create a wonderful looking clean page. Don't forget that also shadows are important here. I created two example pages for you: One without... (here you can see what I mean with a "light" pattern for the background) ...and one with a journal card: (This is Moritzburg castle near Dresden/Germany) Please click on the layouts to see the credits... The special rules for this challenge: * Use a neutral/solid (only one color-"family", if with pattern than a very small/light pattern...) background paper and no additional paper (also no extra paper stripe or something like this) * You are allowed to use (you needn't use all, but listed here is the maximum amount!) - one photo (with or without frame) - one journal card - some paint/small splatter - no more than 5 (small) additional elements Additional elements can for example be a flower, a button, a tag, a doily, sequins or something different ... think small! - some (extra) journaling/a word art/title is allowed, but remember to keep it simple * Your photo and elements can take up only 1/4 of your page - the rest of your page must not have any elements or photos * The use of a template is not allowed (In my personal gallery you can see more clean & simple style layouts, also with more than one background/papers, bigger photos,... BUT for our Day 22 Challenge please create your layout following the rules above...) The 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: Uploaded to the TLP Gallery (not an outside hosting site). 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. Posted in this thread. People can comment here if they wish. - Your page must contain at least 75% current Lilypad product (currently for sale in the store from either permanent designers or guest designers). I hope you have fun with this challenge and I can't wait to see your pages!!!
