{Crazy about Chevron}

June 17, 2011

Happy Friday Folks!!

I hope you all have some lovely things planned for the weekend, and I wish all the dads out there a Happy Father's Day!!

I'm kicking off this beautiful day with a DIY project, and I 'm excited to be linking up to Whipperberry and Thirty Handmade Days, two of my all time favorite blogs!

Thirty Hand Made Days

I've been majorly eyeing almost every Chevron design I've seen around the web lately, and I do believe I have fallen in love with those sharp zigzag patterns in all styles and colors.  I have always been a fan of incorporating geometric shapes into my design schemes, and, as my crush on Chevron continues to grow, I decided to turn it into my latest decoration of choice.

As I drooled over all the chevron pieces I wanted to add to my "wish list", I started thinking about something...Why wait to find a perfect print when I could try to make something fabulous on my own??  Well, that's just what I did, and I'm loving the result.

We're definitely in need of some more funky art pieces to add to our new beach house, and I mixed a beautiful blue color to give these paintings even more of a pop.  I can't wait to hang them in their new home this weekend!!
What do ya think?
{My Handpainted Chevron Designs}
I had a blast on this project, and, {like blogging} I have found bliss in my new painting projects.  I'm also creating a series of modern ampersands, and here's a little sneak peek of one hanging out with Chevron...
{Coming soon to my Etsy Shop}
I hope you like them...They'll be making their way to my Etsy Shop soon, I have a lot of other prints in the works to add to this fun collection.
Have an awesome weekend, and take care...
