4th March- Chevrons

This weeks challenge is 'As it's all the trend in the scrappy world at the moment, create a layout with chevrons on it, in anyway way you can think of!
There are loads of inspiration for chevrons around the internet lately, I found some great ones on Pinterest too! 

Here is what the design team came up with:

I made my chevrons and then hand stitched in between them!


I love Chevron Paper and seeing the new line by Fancy Pants Designs "Be You." made my heart beat faster! The Chevron paper in this collection is not in a regular pattern - there are bold lines and thin ones as well as mixed colours! Really love it! Perfect for the little friend in my picture!


While I adore the look of chevrons and love what I see other people do with them, I have a hard time incorporating them into my scrapping in a creative way so I made them my focal point in the circle on my layout.  I added some hand stitching around the circle to anchor it. 


I love the new trendy chevron pattern, and I incorporated geometric pattern that I've seen about quite a lot (in particular a page by Lisa Truesdell.)  I used a couple of different style chevron papers and then used my arrow stamp to make all the embossed white chevrons (which is also why they go a bit wonky in places).  This is my first page featuring my new nephew, getting a special cuddle from my son, I love the look of adoration on his face as he carefully held his new cousin and this is documented in the journalling behind.


I've used two kinds of chevron in this layout - the first is one of the gorgeous patterns in the Echo Park "This & That: Graceful" collection, which I've used at the top and bottom of my layout, and the second is the handmade chevron block to the right of the photo.

I love chevrons as a graphic element but I also love how they serve as little arrows to guide your eye across a page. I used them here with that in mind. They definitely add movement to a page!
