The Charm of Chevron

I think we have all heard of Chevron....it's been around for a long time. Chevron is also known as zig zag pattern and is a super popular pattern these days.  It’s being printed on everything from fashion to interior decor, clothing, jewellery and more..
It has also made a huge splash into weddings and birthday parties and of course Scrapbooking and Pocket Page Memory Keeping.. I personally love it!  And it's no wonder why; chevron isn't only a great way to add a modern twist to your creations  but it also creates clean lines and adds a fun pop of color.
There are many ways to incorporate it your projects and below is a number of ideas/links to I have come across that have particularly inspired me. I have also found some cool downloads featuring the chevron pattern. 
Don't you just love this creative work of art below on the lollyjane blog - awesome!

Another piece of artwork from Me and My Big Ideas - it just oozes happiness and colour. This one is on my must try list...I am definitely going to give this a go.

So bright and fresh. Citrus is a fun colour to use and the chevron pattern of the table runner adds dimension. The simple white table gives a great backdrop for all the colour. I found this on the trix and trumpet website.  

What about some cute Chevron Washi Tape.  Right here in the
store.

Did you know that there is a distinct difference between a herringbone-design and a chevron design.  With the  herringbone design the wood blocks finish perpendicular to each other, resulting in a broken zigzag. Like in this image below.

Til next time...
