Thursday Trending: Combining Shapes

Hexagons, Triangles, circles...oh my!  I love a good geometric shape...especially when they are combined together.  I think all the different sides and angles makes for interesting focal points.

I used several different shapes on the layout below. 

Some were simply a part of the paper.  See those circles on the bottom reminds me of old fashioned tin ceiling pieces...just gorgeous!  I like that they are in white with texture because it has just enough good stuff without being busy.

I wanted my photos to be the focal point so I combined the square number tag, the circular flower and the hexagons.  I also love the oval and sunrays...all those different edges bring the eye right where I want it. 

I sometimes get antsy about too many shapes and patterns, but works.  Maybe I am comfortable because many of the elements are pink.  That seems to tie them all together. 

I used the Allison Kreft Composition and Color line for this one...yummy stuff!
