    Yay! It's May ... and I'm excited to host this month's photography challenge. Your challenge is to get outside and snap a landscape photo. The focus of your image will make up less than 1/3 of your photo, leaving lots of "white space" in the frame. In that "white space" do some journaling or add a favorite quote!

    Here's my sample page:

    To recap:
    • take a landscape photo
    • 1/3 or less should be the landscape and 2/3 or more should be "white space"
    • add some journaling or a favorite quote in the photo's "white space"

    Now it's your turn! I can't wait to see what you come up with!


    Please remember our monthly challenge rules:

    Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the March 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).

    May we have more than one photo on the page if the landscape is the dominant photo? Thanks! Sounds fun!

    I hope this qualifies as only 1/3 landscape.

    I hope this counts, this was a great challenge, it actually resulted in me finding a bunch of photos I didn't know I actually had digitally!
