June 2012 flickr Friends : Chevrons

A new month brings a new theme for our flickr pool challenge and we hope you’ll be a part of it!

Each month, we provide a theme for you to use on your projects and then ask you to upload them to our flickr pool. At the end of each month, we’ll select a few of our favorites to post here on our blog and send them some BasicGrey goodies as our way of saying thanks. Sound good? You’re free to create any project you’d like – a card, a layout, an altered piece, a mini album – whatever you’d like! You’re also able to incorporate the monthly theme into projects that you upload for our sketch series or any other challenges.

And now for the details…

The theme for this month is “chevrons”.  Hello you trendy pattern you!   We’re seeing chevrons everywhere as of late, including our PB&J collection.  We can’t wait to see how you interpret this month’s theme!

River Side | Yohko Takiguchi

We also issued this challenge to a few of our design team members, including Yohko Takiguchi.  She notes, “The bright color of the PB&J collection matched perfectly for my pictures of this riverside outing.  I created the big chevrons by cutting a yellow paper of this collection. Then I layered a strip of a small chevron pattern paper on the big yellow chevrons.”

Creating Rock Art | Mary Rogers

BasicGrey digital design team member Mary Rogers also took a turn with this month’s challenge theme.  Mary explains, “Vagabond is still one of my favorite colloctions, especially having a teenage son.  I loved these photos my husband captured as Hayden was writing on the rocks.  My hopeless romantic.  I wanted the focus to be on the photos, which is telling the story and created and added photo frames to give the photos depth.  For the title I used the monograms and just added the midnight paper so they would all be of the same background.  I love how the big chevrons frame the layout and the small ones draw your eye to the photos.  Finally, a bit of brush work was added under the photos, along with a framed texture for the background paper.”

Mini Golf | Pamela Young

Design team member Pamela Young created this layout using products from our What’s Up collection.  She notes, “I created a chevron pattern out of patterned paper and stitching.  I also used the fantastic chevron border sticker.  I just love how the What’s Up? collection is perfect for ANY occasion.  I love how this fun layout turned out.”

Canvas To The Imagination | Katherine Bley

And last but not least, another digital project from BG digital design team member Katherine Bley.  Katherine says, “This layout was created using a mix of papers and elements from the Perhaps digital collection. Perhaps was the perfect color choice to portray this particular moment when my granddaughter found great interest in a blade of grass in our front yard when the weather broke enough that we could actually play outside (we live in northeastern Indiana and early spring can be really cold). I’d have given anything to know what her little mind was thinking as she twisted the blade of grass in her little fingers.”

Now it’s your turn! Upload your projects to our BasicGrey flickr pool, making sure to tag it with our monthly theme “612chevron” so that we can find it easily. Projects must be uploaded by June 28, 2012 at 11:59p MST.
