Chevron Love

image

I’m sort of crazy in love with chevron designs right now. Chevron has been a big trend in home decorating, packaging design, and of course, in scrapbooking for quite some time now, and I never seem to tire of it. There’s something very fresh and classic about the simple lines of chevron! It seems like my “favorites” folders are always bursting with chevron designs.

Chevron papers are one of the few patterned papers that I feel comfortable using as a full background print. Tara’s layout has a cool designer feeling to it, without overwhelming the pictures.

Chevrons can be used in small areas to add emphasis to a focal point. I love the way mizbizibee put a patch of chevron under the photo on this page.

If you are looking for a unique embellishment, try filling some shapes with chevron papers like cardinalskate did with this page.

Chevrons make great border papers on layouts. Ana.Paula framed her fun layout with a cheery chevron print.

I love the chevron can go with any theme or topic. It works equally well on masculine and feminine pages. It’s the perfect finishing touch for this travel page by Heather Prins.

A bold cheery chevron balances out the dark solid paper and the black & white photo on Brandi’s fun layout.

When mixing prints and patterns, chevrons go with just about anything! I love the combinations on scarlettcharm’s page.

When I look at gracielou’s layout, I just feel happy. Chevrons are so much fun!
