    Hello and welcome to the July Style Challenge! This month, I'd love to see what you can do with symmetry on your page. To help convey this idea I've gathered some images and illustrations with symmetry and mirror images to get your creative juices flowing. Take a peek:

    Sundrysociety.com Retro Arches Printable Art
    canvas.com Mirror Image by Soul Curry Art & Illustrations
    artrepublic.com Opulence by Olly Howe
    ragnamouritzen.com Untitled 8
    canvas.com Workspace New York by So Loretta
    Condenaststore.com The New Yorker May 29th 1965 by Arthur Getz
    folksy.com Hummingbirds and Butterfly Original Lino Cut Print


    As you can see from the images above, symmetry can be very literal or somewhat more abstract.

    Here are some scrapbook pages that utilize this design principal on their pages:

    Here is my page with a mirrored cluster on the diagonal:

    So your challenge for this month is to make a page with symmetry or mirrored images as the star of your page. Your page should have more than just a symmetrical pattern paper or a photo on each side of the page. I want to see symmetry as the main design principal of the page you create!


    Remember our monthly challenge rules:
    Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Galleryand then linked to the July 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).

    I'd like to complete this since it would be something new for me. Thanks for the idea.

    So in my mind, if you flipped the page in half along the horizontal line the bottom and the top would be symmetrical.

    I might have gone a bit overboard but was inspired by the middle image

    This one was... both difficult and easy at the same time... Other than the text - journaling and word bits - the lower half is the upper part flipped up side down. Journaling in gallery.
