in my opinion, is totally played out. Don't get me wrong...I still love them, but I'm also tired of them. So when I was supposed to use hexagons and masking for a blog post for The ScrapCake I knew I had to change it up a little. :) So using my Cameo, I made hexagons that were taller and different than the normal stop sign hexagons we've been seeing everywhere.
Here's my layout:
Here's how my masking technique played in to my layout....
I created the mask with my Cameo (the negative portion of the cardstock with my hexagons). Then I added several mediums including ink, chalk, and paint, so it looked like this before I lifted my mask off:
Then I covered a bunch of my hexagons up with hexagons of patterned paper, as well as kraft cardstock. Using the hexagons of the same color as the background create a much more subtle look but still add a lot of texture and character.
Here's my close up's of the layout:
Thanks so much for stopping in today!
So weigh in--hexagons...still hot or getting old?
