Weekly Challenge - Repeating Shapes - Deadline Sept 12

This week I want you to pick ONE shape (square, circle, triangle, hexagon, etc), and then use it at least 15 times on your layout! It doesn't have to look exactly the same each time, so feel free to think outside the box and figure out interesting ways to repeat your shape.

Important Details

Due Date: Sept 12, 2013, 9am (USA Pacific time)

Tag: challenge shapes sept 2013
Make sure you use this tag exactly, so we can browse easily through the gallery and see all the submissions, and so you can get your points. Please only tag one layout.

See basic challenge rules here.

Check out finished and entered layouts here.

It's going to be so hard to choose a shape... I'm loving circles, squares, AND hexagons lately!!

Fun..... and harder than it might sound. 15!?

Nice challenge! I have an idea already!

I went with circles. Some of my circles are in the shapes of the items such as the wheels of the car and the bike.
And some are the photos. I also counted the splotches in the background. I kinda thought way outside the box for this. LOL
My layout in in my gallery

I tried a grid for squares, but needed to use 12 X 12. Not my favorite size.

I tried to use triangles in my layout ^.^

I went with circles because I had a great template for it! smiley

Catherine, I like this a lot. It's great how you choose a polka dotted background and how all the other circles repeat in bolder colors. Lovely! Will have to lift this page for sure. smiley

I totally agree Amanda!

Thanks for the challenge, love everyone's pages and ideas smiley - I chose a Pentagon as my shape...

I had the PERFECT template for this in my stash!

Find the link to it in my gallery.

This challenge solved my dilemma of what to do with these silly boy photos.

My submission can be found here

love it catherine! and the hearts! so cute. To get images bigger I'm pretty sure you can set the size when you insert the image to the forum, by typing in the size. I normally go 600 by 600

Hi Kay, ref image size

I just right clicked the image after I had uploaded it to the gallery then copied the url
Then using the insert image icon pasted it into there and clicked ok smiley

Lots of lots of hearts!

This is wonderful

Here is my submission for the shapes challenge. I used a puzzle piece. It may be a bit much, but I had fun creating it.

Eileen, I love the quote smiley Emily, nice hearts

Heather-- Thanks for the help. I fixed my image size.

Emily-- Love the hearts.

Eileen-- what a perfect quote--I adore the puzzle piece idea. Can I steal it? LOL

This really is a fun challenge! I love all the submissions so far. I took the opportunity to play with squares.
You can find my layout here.

I LOVE all the layouts so far. Great work everyone.

Here is mine.

I figure the trees are basically a bunch of triangles stacked on one another - maybe that is pushing the boundaries a little? What do you guys think?

Eileen, I love the puzzle pieces! And Kaleena, of course it's pushing the boundaries a little, but isn't that what creativity is about? You also repeated rectangles if you want to be specific about the shapes, but I love the idea that the trees are stacked triangles.

This is an art journal page I made. I'm not sure if art journal pages are strictly allowed, but I love creating them on my iPad. It's more portable than even a handful of watercolor pencils and a waterbrush and gives me access to infinitely more supplies. Someday I'm going to get one of those giant 128GB monsters with 3g and I'll truly have the power to do whatever art I want whenever I want to. Sadly right now I'm tethered to Wifi to access my dropbox account and only have a 16GB iPad 2. It's still really awesome though.

Oops, forgot the link to my page: here.

Uploaded to the gallery here.

Wonderful layouts everyone! Thanks for sharing. I've given you all 10 community points and congrats to our random winner Elisabeth!
