Thoughtful Thursday

Today there's a new thought up at Thinking*Through*Design! This thought is on chevrons, which I think is a totally AWESOME topic because chevrons are so popular right now-- and not just in the scrapbook world!
Here's my "thought":
"I love using chevrons in my scrapping, especially since they are one of the hot trends right now! I don't have a chevron diecut, so I decided to combine several chevron printed papers. I sketched out my layout to begin with, and used the large circles as focal points of the layout. I used the lighter chevron print (yellow) for the large circle and the bolder pink chevron design for one of the smaller circles. The paper collection I used for this layout is the Amy Tangerine Sketchbook line from American Crafts. There is a lot of doodles in this line, so I added a lot of my own doodles to thie page, namely the title! After I finished the page, I thought the chevron design needed to be a little more prominent on the page, so I doodled some large chevron designs on the background and added some stickles to a couple of the chevrons."

Beautiful page Heather and awesome use of the chevrons! I love that you used the chevron paper for the circles and the background looks great. The Sketchbook collection is one of my favorites this year!!

I agree, it is genius to stitch on your chevrons! The design is subtle on that paper and the stitching moves your eye around the page. Awesome photo too!

I love the layering of the chevron patterns and variety! Some of so bold and others, very subtle. Such a beautiful layout!
