Fusion #9 - Hello Chevrons!

Hi and thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you're enjoying the Spring weather.  I'm trying to get more active and start walking again.  I even bought some new walking shoes yesterday.  I was actually out looking for some for my son, but I quickly got distracted by all the bright colors in the women's section.   I'm old school and normally go for the plain white.  The ones I picked  a bit shocking - silver with pink and purple accents.   I don't know what got into me.  I guess it's time for a change!  If they make me want to walk more then it's all good right?

A new two week challenge begins at Fusion today.  Look at all the bright colored chevrons!  The minute I saw it I started thinking about striped beach umbrellas, but seriously folks, it's still cold in my part of the world!   Here's the cool thing about Fusion - you can work with the inspiration photo, OR the sketch.... OR BOTH!  
I stuck with the pattern and snuck in the striped colored chevrons on the background paper.  The three chevrons on the pattern became colorful flowers.   These were just flat cut flowers that I layered and added a gem to the center of.   If you look close you will see the layout is there, but as a foundation.  I topped it with die cuts and wood accents.  I think it's just about as cheery as the inspiration pic.    And look!  No stamps!!   How weird huh?  Well sometimes that just happens.   I'm just sayin'!

If your needing a little more inspiration, check out more designs from the rest of the team. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

This is a fabulous design and I love the bold primary colors you picked with the feminine touches. I am not sure I am brave enough to do something like that. :)
