My original inspiration came from this little gem on Pinterest.
Again I love chevron so I immediately fell in love with this. But I also love pictures. I have about 6 canvas's from my dorm room that I decorate and put pictures on. So I got this awesome idea to just chevron the canvas's and then put pictures over top.
After deciding what I was going to do, I had to come up with a way to paint the chevron onto the canvas. So where did I turn to find this? Google, duh! And I found this cute blog that showed me how!
First I painted the canvas the base color I wanted. Then you measure out lines on your canvas. My canvas was a little bit of an awkward size to make this perfect, but I did about 1.5 inches. You do horizontal and vertical lines, so that when you are through you have boxes on your canvas.
|I know this is kinda hard to see! Sorry!|
Then you go through and draw diagonals through each box using the corners as guidelines.
|Again sorry if you can't really see this!|
|Now you can see a little better what is going on here!|
When all is said and done, you peel off the tape and you have your wonderful chevron canvas!
|Again not a great picture!|
This is the first of six for me and I am in love! My other colors will be grey and gold. I know it is not perfect, but I am thrilled with what I have been able to do!!
Now go get your craft on and make something you love!!
