Thanks for joining us for the May edition of One Product, Three Ways. This month we are featuring our new Wood Veneer Hexagons, and our three designers playing along in the challenge this month have used them on three different projects to inspire you! Let’s see what they have created.
Meghann Andrew | I love these hexagons, especially for the fact that they are different sizes and some contain images or sayings. I paired them with the 3″ x 4″ colorful hexagon tag from the May 2017 Kit to document my favorite fizzy beverage, Ale 8. It’s customary for us to buy one at the end of a long hike in my home state, so it was perfect that this month’s May 2017 Digital Cut File included the word “hike.”
I wanted to arrange the wood veneer pieces so that they resembled the effervescence from a fizzy drink, so I turned them different ways and lined them up in a vertical line, going right through my photo. I decided to paint some of them with acrylic paint, matching the red, green and yellow on my layout and in my photo. To mask off some of the hexagon, I used washi tape before painting. For a different texture, I paired these up with hexagon enamel shapes to finish up my layout.
Daniela Dobson | I used the Wood Veneer Hexagons as part of the embellishment on my card. I wanted there to be a variety of textures, so I traced three of the smallest hexagon onto my cardstock base with a black pen and colored the shape in with markers. I stamped “Hello” from the Today Stamp with three different ink colors on the sun 3″ x 4″ tag from the May 2017 Kit, and adhered it to the card base using foam adhesive. To finish off the card, I outlined the base with a thin, black border with and added sequins.
Jamie Leija | I’m super excited about hexagons these days. They’re so different from you typical basic shape! I love how they interact with each other and can nestle alongside each other so neatly. I created two 3″ x 4″ pocket page filler tags using the awesome Wood Veneer Hexagons. I love that there was a mix of plain, shapes and words decorating the veneer. I also love that the May 2017 Kit came with two journaling tags featuring this awesome shape. Also, if you look closely, the middle of each Spring Sequin is a hexagon, so they were perfect to pair alongside the veneer and the journaling tags.
