Layers Challenge Theme (1).jpg



Layers can take on so many interpretations like using physical items such as the prints and books in our challenge announcement flatlay to some more deep and meaningful layers, metaphorical tree rings or layers of an onion. You could experiment with the aesthetic layering of light, layering of colours, layering of textures, patterns, prints. It's totally open to your interpretation so get your flatlay, shelflay, stacklay, hanglay on and lay your creativity on extra thick!
