Chevron love

Have you seen that chevrons are everywhere at the moment. I recently wanted to use some on a male layout but i didnt have the right colour paper so i attempted to make my own. I loved how it turned out so here is a quick how to.
Take a piece of patterned paper or cardstock measuring 12" wide x 8" high. Draw pencil lines every 1/2" across. Repeat going upwards. Carfully begin drawing in diagonal lines. At this stage you can make each chevron thick or thin.
Carefully cut them out and arrange them in strips on your page.
And do you notice the barn stars. They are very easy to make. Roughly draw a 5 pointed star onto card as a template. Draw around it onto card or patterned paper. Cut it out.
Take your score board and score down every point. Bend the top points mountain and the inner points valley, IYKWIM.
Add to the layout. I used wet glue on the underside of the points to secure.
Materials Used Stampin Up Twitterpated designer series paper 12 x 12 Crumb cake cardstock. Perfect pairs stamps Black Stazon
And i will leave you with a simple card i made from the scraps.
