For the Love of Chevron

Yep, it's true.  I am completely smitten with Chevron.  It doesn't seem to matter what form it comes in. The fact is, I LOVE IT.


And so, it seems to mean that I must keep on making layouts that incorporate Chevron.  In this particular case, I really love the juxtaposition of patterns and colors as well as the varying widths of the various patterns.

I've been visionating on this particular layout for a month or two since I saw some artwork by Catherine Dudley.  Below is the piece that she created that inspired me to create the page you'll find a little farther down.

Isn't that the coolest piece?!  If you click on her link, you'll see that she has a very unique collage style that includes linear design and color.  I wouldn't mind having something like that on my wall and you know what, I may just work on creating something like it.  (is that wrong??)

I have visions of glossy medium slathered over the tops of some favorite patterned papers and tapes.

My layout uses a lot of my washi tapes, including one of my favorites.  (see that Red and white diagonal stripe?  It has a second layer which is mostly covered up on this particular project which says 'No.' with a line where you can write something.  Love that roll.  You can get it here if you love it too. (I'm almost tempted to buy another roll because I really don't want to run out!)

In addition, I used the Glee Club kit from Studio Calico. Finally, the base is created using some vintage ledger paper from a French Pharmaceutical Firm in the late 1800's.  Love using my vintage collection papers.











Thanks for stopping by today.  Your visits and comments and choice to follow mean so much to me.  I appreciate and read every single comment you leave, just so ya know!
