Welcome to Kim Jensen's Designer Challenge for March 2022. This month we are pulling out the elements and using them all! or at least a whole lot of them Your challenge is to create a large shape from a mix of elements for your page - no papers, just elements. The shape is completely up to you, it just needs to fill the page and the element arrangement should convey what it is. Challenge Instructions: Layouts should have: 1 solid background paper Shape must fill the page Place one small photo in your shape. *Mix and match elements and words of all kinds to fill the shape. Only elements such as flowers, clips, wordart, stamps, stringbats, sequins, etc. and alphas (single letters or used to spell words) may be used, no papers. -Mixer packs are an ideal place to start as Kim gives you a variety of coordinating elements to work with in one pack. *Multiples of small elements may be used to fill in spaces. Please do not fill your shape with only one kind of element. I want to see a variety. *Small empty spaces between elements are A-OK, or they may overlap slightly. *One line of text for naming and dating your page outside the shape is allowed if it does not fit in the shape somewhere, but bonus points if you can fit it in the shape itself! play with the text warping options to give it some curve if you don't have a straight area on or in your shape. *Remove the shape that you used as a guide for building on from the page when filled - do not leave it on your background. The arrangement of your elements should communicate the larger shape on your page. BONUS challenge: use 4 or more different element packs to fill your shape. If you need some inspiration, I've collected some a variety of examples on this Pinterest board. https://www.pinterest.com/melinda_staley/scrapbook-los-tutorials/fill-a-shape-challenge/ I made this example with the Eclectic Spring Mixer as the main pack and took some screenshots as I went along to show how I did it. If you would find that helpful, you can check it out HERE. and the page I did last month for SOSN that sparked this month's challenge Challenge Rules: *Use at least 75% Kim Jensen Designs product (current or retired from TLP) to create your layout meeting the criteria listed above. *Upload your layout to the Kim Jensen gallery.

A few of the team played along with me early so you could see some more examples. Meibritt went with a Summer Pool theme and a heart shape Kimberly also made a Summer themed page, but chose a sun shape and Monica used all green elements to make a clover shape Have fun playing and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
