23rd Oct - Tic Tac Toe

Good Morning!
Today's challenge is..

Tic Tac Toe; choose any line and include those items in a layout.

Here are the design team's layouts and it's the new challenge for our new DT members...

Middle row for me: paint, thread and punches. I decided to use papers from Marion Smith's NIRVANA collection. I punches circles in some of the paper strips in the paper cluster and arranged blue thread in between the layers - you can see it sticking out on the sides. As usual, loads of white paint with added blue for the watercolour effect on the background. You can see the details and layers on my blog. I'm very curious to see which line you're going to choose.

I chose the diagonal of wood, thread, and twine for my page.  Most of what you see here came from Citrus Twist's September and October Main Kits, which included lots from Maggie Holmes' Gather Collection and some fabulous die cuts from Indigo Hills by Pinkfresh.  I absolutely adore all the blues!

First row for me, wood, wash tape and flair. I have used the new collection by Coco Vanilla Studio, Make a Wish and a beautiful cut file to add another layer of interest. I look forward to seeing your creations.

I chose the first row across; wood washi and flair. I am a sucker for woodgrain and both the background and cut files were created using wood grain paper. The bright color of the washi is an unexpected pop of color on this layout. A cute little flair button adds a cute woodsy feel.


For my layout, I chose the top row – wood, washi tape and flair.  The map paper gave me the idea of doing a layout of a few photos of my family on their Pok√©mon hunts this summer.  I wanted the page to be fun and busy.  As usual, I have colored my wood veneer.  The dotted washi tape and round flair help to reinforce a diagonal line through the photos.

I chose the diagonal line of wood, thread and twine.

I chose the bottom row with arrow, buttons and twine. I immediately reached for the Bella Blvd. - Color Chaos - for this layout to symbolize the various color belt ranks a martial artist must go thru. Plus I thought it went well with the B/W photo. I didn't want "color" everywhere though, as karate is about control and "clean lines".

I hope the design team has inspired you to have a go! You have until 6th November to join in with the this month's challenges, please link them up to the side bar, we would love to see them!
