Hello. my friends!! It's a wonderful snowy spring day here in Calgary. Yeah, it's crazy that we got dumped on yesterday but we are used to it snowing here until at least mid-May so it's no surprise. Really, it's quite pretty and the moisture will help turn everything green around here. I cannot wait until I can plant pots of flowers around the May long weekend. It should be warm enough by then ;)
I know I've been a total flake when it comes to posting lately but I am always excited when we have a brand new Embellish Magazine Color Challenge for you.
This challenge is to incorporate CHEVRON into your creation. I know you know how trendy it is right now. It's everywhere, which is why it's mind boggling to me that I don't have a single thing Chevron. No stamps, no paper, no fabric. I had to get creative and turn this amazing Echo Park striped paper into my own Chevron patterned paper. It's really easy. Just cut a corner of the page off at 45 degrees. Then cut strips (I think mine are about 3/4" wide). Turn the paper to cut the other corner the same way so you have the stripes going in different directions. Then just match them up and glue them to a backing.
I am sure it comes as no surprise to you that I made a chevron heart. Is there anything I won't put on a heart? Um, no.
I stamped the frame and sentiment from Sweet Somethings by Technique Tuesday. I trimmed it out with scissors and then cut another border behind it.
So there you go! Just use these crazy adorable colors (Aqua, Grey, Purple and Pink), and Chevron, on your awesome creation and add it to the linky tool over on Embellish Magazine blog. I cannot wait to see what you all come up with. Have a wonderful snowy spring day!
