Hexagons

I've mentioned before that I'm not the trendiest scrapper.  (With the exception of this awesomely, fantastically trendy project, of course.)  In fact, I'm probably one of the least-trendy scrappers around.  When I do embrace a trend, it's usually only after I've given it time to grow on me.  But most of the trends pass right on by me.  I haven't accented with mason jars or used feathers on a layout.  I don't have a single project that's mint and orange.  I haven't used any Polaroid-shaped chipboard, nor have I used mustache patterned paper.    

And up until a few days ago, I hadn't used hexagons.  No particular reason why, as I have nothing against hexagons.

Each Wednesday, Ideas for Scrapbookers (where I am a Contributing Artist) has a Designer Showcase, featuring a particular topic, design element, or theme.  Today's is hexagons.  We get the list of topics several weeks ahead of time so that we can create something to fit the theme if we don't already have a relevant project to share.  I dug through my stack of patterned paper and discovered that I do actually own quite a bit of paper with hexagons.  So I made a card.

 
As it turns out, I really like working with hexagons!  I can definitely see using them again for future projects.  What about you?  Thumbs up or thumbs down to hexagons?

  1. Great card!
    I too, am always late to the trend party.
    I'm pretty sure I just ordered a hexagon embossing folder!

  2. Cute card! Love the little bee "flying" around and the distressed pink BG!

    I love the look of hexagons but they scare me! LOL! I have been wanting to try them for a long time and I finally made it a bit simpler by buying some Jillibean Soup hexagon stickers. I have since used them in varying amounts on 3 layouts. I don't think I would ever be brave enough to do more than that though.

    1. No, that is YOUR next assignment. We can work side-by-side, me with hexagons and you with hexadecimal.
