The oversized chevron

I love Studio Calico's little wood veneer chevrons, but you can also make them on a much larger scale to draw attention to the photo.  I choose some Studio Calico papers which have a lovely ombreish/rainbow pattern to them.  I cut a strip about 4 inches wide, and then on the back I marked the centre, and then marked down 2" on each side, joined the lines together which made the point on my chevron, I then made some 1" deep and some 1/2" deep - inspired by those wood veneers and their different sizes.  I like the way that they draw your eye into the photo...though I think my husband is right - I should have used the colour photo for this one as that would have made it pop from the page  allittle more. 

I also used a pile of embellishments from the Maggie Holmes ephemera pack - there are loads of gorgeous goodies in there including the tickets, tags, bows and several cameras.
