Two for Tuesday - Zig Zag Borders

When I saw the tutorial video Jennifer McGuire created for Studio Calico I just pinned it so I could go back and watch it in detail:


I actually watched it twice - once without sound and once with...to make sure I had the idea in my head.

Then I set about creating a large "Cheveron" border that I split in half for two layouts.

These are the result of my little experiment:


Cardstock: Recollections
Printed Paper: Collage Press Knave of Hearts Queen of Hearts, Collage Press Knave of Hearts Witty, My Minds Eye lost & Found Union Square Home Sweet Home, My Minds Eye Frost Signature Christmas Ice Crystals, October Afternoon Fly A Kite Dandilions
Die Cuts: Collage Press Knave of Hearts
Stickers: EK Success Stocko
Tape: Tim Holtz Tissue Tape Nostalgic
Letters: Jillibean Soup Corrugated Kraft Alphas
Adhesive: GlueArts Glue Glider Pro
Font: My Underwood

This is definitely one technique I'll try again...but I think I'll shrink the size of my paper lines and will also limit myself to about three colors. I think I'll get more success out of this particular technique that way.

Peace, ya'll!
