Punky Scraps #42 "Get PIcky"

That's right! Time for my favorite challenge of the month!  I love this challenge because it truly is challenging to use everything on the list.  This month wasn't any different!  These girls about killed me with all of the shapes on this one!  So here is your list:

Michelle - hexagons
Cheryl C – white paint
Kim - make a grid
Sara - use small photos
Nat - no pink
Mandy - use three circles
Elin -use three squares
maxell - use something transparent

So there you have it, shapes galore!  Now my pics aren't as small as some of the other dt...but for me they are smaller than I usually use.  This was only the second time I have ever made a layout without a pic in mind...so as I was going through all of my pics I came across my girl Cassie's photo session and her shirts matched the colors perfectly!  She was also in my punky scraps#40 so this must have been a Cassie month!
At the bottom of the page you can find the 3 squares with a grid texture in them (courtesy of a Gauche alchemy punchinella).  I thought I took a close up, but didn't find it in my files???

This picture shows the 3 circles at the top with more gauche punchinella used for texture.

Here's one of the 2 hexagons and a close up of the Scrapfx title letters and angel wings

And here we have a horrible pic of my transparent heart mixed in with some petaloo flowers that I misted.  I used a Scrapfx flourish and applied  pearls with a viva decor pearl pen...I LOVE this thing!!!  I have tried to use perfect pearls before but I do not have a steady hand at all and I usually can't  get them round to save my life!  This thing is fool proof...even if it starts off with a point at the top...it eventually settles down into a perfect circle!  Seriously, my son was shaking me while I was applying these things and they still look like pearls!  Its my new favorite thing!

You can find the petaloo flowers and pearl pen at the STTG store...plus, if you go visit the ning site you can join an easy peasy challenge there for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate!

This months challenge there is to use the words Thank you, or thankful in a project of your choice!  So whatcha waiting for????  Come play with us!

Thanks for looking, and God Bless!

I love how you incorporated many of the shapes more subtly by having the shapes come through as a texture! Brilliant job Misty!
