CKC Challenge #3 - A Touch of Tessellation

Over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog, Jemma challenges us to use the ingenious art of Escher as our inspiration.  He often uses a pattern (or tessellation) to create interesting patterns in his pieces.

Take a look at how I incorporated this technique in my layout:


I used a touch of tessellation in my layout today.  I decided to use a series of overlapping circles to create what loosely looks like fish scales.  I'm featuring my son and his role as King Triton in the Little Mermaid Jr.  As I was playing around with the circles, I even found a pattern that reminded me of a fish tale shape. 


How will you repeat a pattern on your page?

Can't wait to see!

Sending Scrapiness,



  1. Great take on this prompt! I really like the center design and those twisted fibers made me think of seaweed. The stitching on your photos mat is a fun detail and the colors on this page are really lovely too!

  2. Adorable layout! I love the design!

  3. Hi Lynnette. Love your layout. Particularly all the little touches that give it a marine life feel without it being overt (like your "seaweed" and "scales"). And I love that you used such a playful photo.

  4. Ah, that costume - so clever and I know it wasn't easy. But it turned out perfectly as did this lovely layout. The "scales" are so pretty and that background paper is just gorgeous - the one with the triangles. I think I need more papers like this in my life. So good to see you scrapping and creating - I miss it when you're not :-(
