Challenge 173 - 6/6 All About 6

Going around in Circles!!!

The new challenge over at How Much is Too Much is all about circles. Did you know that 6 circles of any size when put together will make a complete circle with no gap in it? So you can guess where this is leading - the date for the challenge is 6/6 so we're going to use six punched out circles, buttons or brads and use it on the page in a circle.

Easy almost too easy so lets add something else in six, flowers, butterflies, bugs or anything that works for your page and 6 patterned papers.
So that's :

6 circles made into a circle - dots punched from Kaiser Seaside Range, these when then glued down onto circles I have punched from acetate and 3D'd to the page.
6 similar embellishments - Bird Stickers, Handcut flowers from Kaiser paper,
6 patterned papers - Glitz and Kaiser Seaside Range

Photo was cut into a circle and overlayed with a circle transparency from Little Yellow Bicycle. Yellow paint was used on the background paper along the edges and to highlight some of the pattern in the paper. Banners were cutout and raised with foam tape, along with crackle accents. Picture is of my DS that I captured when we were at the beach and he was just looking out at the water.

Thanks for looking, why not drop over to HMITM and give this Challenge ago, its a great way to delve into that stash and put it to good use.
