Counterfeit Kit Challenge - using triangles

July is off to a good start with a fun challenge over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog - to use at least 5 triangles on your project.

I am totally loving the triangle trend right now and have been using them more and more - but mostly across the page or in the corners so using a bunch of triangles as the paper design was something new to try.

I found this gorgeous sketch on Pinterest and used it to inspire and drive my design.

I used my Sunshine July kit for this first layout as I thought the brighter colours would be fun to contrast against each other as I layered up the different sizes of triangle.

I'm still fighting to improve my layout photography so apologies for the blue tinge and yes, it is actually straight in real life!

I thought I would play up the stereotype about English weather by using clouds and raindrops for this summer day themed page!

I tried to get dimension by raising up the photo even though the background is relatively flat despite the layers

I love trying out new trends when I create and piling up the triangles here was so much fun! What about you? Trends or classic?

Thanks for dropping by and don't forget to come back tomorrow to see more Scrapabilly creations.
