Today I have a fun layout to share with you!  While walking through Target a few weeks ago, I saw this bed set and immediately thought SCRAPBOOK PAGE!  :)  I mean, chevrons, ombre, and white space???  Yes please!




So this is what I came up with!  I love the movement of the chevrons on this image, so I wanted to use them to help convey the movement in my photo of my daughter running and jumping off the dock.



I chose some blue papers from different collections (Crate Paper, Fancy Pants, Studio Calico) that went from dark to lighter to create the ombre effect.  I cut strips 1.25" long, and then cut chevrons from them of varying sizes  I just cut the first few chevron pieces from the dark navy free hand, but them used them to cut the right shapes for the other shades of blue so the arrows would line up.



I accented with a few other colors to make it fun and summery (most products from Crate Paper The Pier collection), and again, some more sequins to give that sparkling water look!  Finally some contrast with some circles in cork and woodgrain and some splatters of yellow mist.


Thanks for stopping by today for the hop and stay scrappy my friends!
