It's no secret this pattern is everywhere - from furniture to bath towels to stamps and scrapbook pages. We're loving the different ways we're seeing this pattern used and adapted. Let's take a look at a few projects from the Peas using these zig zag lines:
Ursula Schneider created her own chevron border by piecing together bits of pattern paper on this soft and lovely layout. I love the way she's countered its sharp points by rounding the corners on her stitching and cardstock.
Paige22 had a similar idea and used it on her vibrant layout, "Happy." I like that the pieces do not perfectly line up; there are small gaps of white that add interest and remind us our pages don't have to be perfect! The splashes of color below add balance to the page.
The beauty of digital products is that you can customize them to suit your needs. I would never have thought to put a pattern inside a speech bubble! Joscie combined a handful of digital elements including this chevron background to create a fun, monochromatic card.
Do you love the pattern, but creating zig zag lines yourself is not for you? There are LOTS of products using this trend on the market. I'm loving the way WeeMemories did not stop at one stamped chevron heart, but layered three pieces and tucked it into a chevron envelope to boot!
Finally, here are two helpful video tutorials from past classes by Garden Girls Shannon Tidwell and Julie Campbell on creating chevron backgrounds:
