And recently, I have fell into the chevron craze. And I've fallen hard. I know I'm late but it' just so cute!!! How did I not see it before? I currently want everything to be chevron!
Unfortunately, chevron isn't the easiest thing to paint. (Why couldn't I just be obsessed with stripes or solid colors?!) I started to draw a grid with pencil on my bulletin board by tracing a sticky note pad. Then I drew in the diagonals of each sticky note box. I used a tissue box as my straight edge and oddly enough, it was the perfect size (weird, right? I like to think of it as resourceful!). So after a few lines, I stopped tracing the sticky note pad and just used it to put the tissue box in position. Confusing enough??? I don't know, but it worked for me!
Oh, I also painted the frame blue. I used the Americana acrylic paints - "Mulberry" and "Deep Midnight Blue" that my mom picked out for me. Good job mom!
(sorry about this last picture being a crappy phone picture...I had already uploaded the other pics on my computer and was too lazy to do it again!)
