The April 1st challenge for About A Boy (link on the sidebar) was to use chevrons in your design - easy right!? WRONG! I went through my entire stash and found I had nothing. Apparently I've never used a chevron before.
I went looking in my idea books and on web pages for inspiration, but everything was so busy for my style of scrapping. I then stumbled upon a picture that had nothing to do with chevrons and noticed the rick rack, and that was the inspiration for the following page.
I knew I wanted the chevron to be subtle when I started so this was perfect for that.
You probably can't tell from the large page, but the photo mats are chevrons too. I took a close up to try to show that detail.
As a final note....if anyone has any suggestions on how to take better pictures of my scrap pages I would love, love, love to hear them. It seems no matter when I take the picture I get glare and the smaller details don't show. Can't wait to hear your comments. Until next time....
