Thursday Trending: Arrows Everywhere

It took me a long time to jump on the chevron and hexagon bandwagon...I love trends, but can get nervous about them.  Except for arrows, bring them on!  I love arrows of any sizes as well as chevron-like spearhead arrows.

Not sure if that is what they are called, but who is keeping track. The arrow took on an important role in my newest layout for Webster's Pages.  I went with a love and Valentine's Day theme...with that...Cupid came to mind!

Cupid shoots arrows, of course.

I love these little hearts on the Clean & Simple papers in the Modern Romance LOVE them. The forest green one really drew me in and I had to showcase it, one little strip at a time.  I started out with a criss-cross grid and then decided to use the chevron paper to make my arrow heads.  An idea was born.

I decided to bring the yellow around the page, overlapping with other colors.  To give the straight lines movement, I added that flower cluster.  I might be Clean & Simple, but I love a good flower cluster from Webster's.  

I am digging the arrow.  We might be casually seeing each other.  The frequency is more than I anticipated so it might be long-lasting love.
