Default September Less Is More Challenge

Hi everyone, Darlene here of Studio4 Design•works. It's time for the September 2013 "Less Is More Challenge! I hope everyone who have school age children are all set to send them off. We start after Labour Day weekend here in Canada, and I know some of your children have already started so it's time to get back into routine mode again! We're in the midst of a long weekend and I'm holidays next week! I'm so excited to be getting away for a bit, so I apologize in advance that I won't be able to see your lovely layouts until I get back next Sunday. So please know I'm not ignoring you!

I love the great participation in this challenge and look forward to seeing your layouts every month! This month, I'm offering up a FREEBIE mini kit for you to work with called SOLITUDE. The premise of this challenge is to download this kit and create a LO using ALL of the elements and papers of the kit, leaving nothing out. Feel free to use your imagination and clip papers, recolour elements or papers. You can add journaling text or a title, but nothing more. You can duplicate items and use them over again, or clip to shapes that come native to your program. Be creative! And most important - have FUN!

Post your LO here in the "LESS IS MORE" gallery and then link your LO back here in this thread.

Download the mini kit HERE.

Here's what you get to work with this month.

Thank you for a beautiful kit!! Here's mine:
The only hard thing to see is the pink paper which I turned to pale blue and made paint splatters out of and lowered the opacity.

Great LOs so far!
Foxinsocks, how did you do the heart cut outs? I haven't found where shapes are yet in PSE7, so I either do circles or hand draw each cutout... Love your circle layering too!

IN PSE 9 In the tools bar on the left, it is the blue star, click it. At the top, in the window task bar it will say "shape" with a small window showing the current selected shape, simply click the down arrow and look through all the choices!
