Hexagons, Hexagons, Hexagons!

Hexagons are EVERYWHERE! Holy cow! I decided to 'try' and jump on the bandwagon seeing as I have hexagon Nestabilities dies, but I feel like it was a major fail!  I cut out a bunch of hexagons using some PTI scraps I have (yah for scraps!)......but then things stalled fast!  These scraps sat on my desk for TWO WEEKS! I played around, hated it, pushed it aside, tried again, hated it, pushed aside. Finally I just started gluing things down or all of them were going in the circular file!

This is what I came up with. Still not thrilled, but it's acceptable:
What do you think? I know I won't be using hexagons anytime again fast (I think!)

Thanks for your visit!

The only thing I don't like Maria is the gray and that is cause I really dislike gray! I think it is neat how you popped up some of the middle ones for some dimension. Don't give up, you do great work!

MORE than acceptable! I think it's great. And yes, everywhere you look you see these are chevrons! Love your card and the DP scraps are great.

I'm with you Maria, not much of a fan of the hexagons. Nice attempt on your card - very persistent of you. I would have quit and thrown my project in the trash after one or two attempts! I do like your color combos a lot! Check out Pinterest and the designers for PTI. They seem to have mastered hexagons.

Glad you were hit with the "hex" bug as this card is geometrically fabulous!

LOL, I know what you mean, Maria! I love what other people are doing with hexagons, but I haven't come up with anything worth talking about myself. Really like your design, though. Reminds me of grandma's quilt. Love the sentiment and the simple score lines at the top, too.

I don't think it is a fail. I like it. Very trendy with all the hexagons.

Hi Maria,

This card is so NEAT and smartly done... the colours are subtle and unusual. For heaven's sake, stop being so hard on yourself. Your cards are great. As ever.
Love,
M
