Chevrons and Green at The Twinery!

Hi Everyone, today I have a fun layout for the Twinery's Green and Chevron Challenge!
As soon as I saw the challenge, I knew I was going to use this silly "selfy" picture of my daughter and me.   It's amazing how she doesn't mind taking pictures like this, but if I pull out my Canon, forget it!

I decided to go with a monochromatic look.  Bella Blvd had a lot of green/white papers with chevrons, perfect for the challenge! I created dimension by cutting out shamrock shapes from my background paper and backing them with a coordinating paper. To make them pop a bit more, I outlined them with some Honeydew Twine from The Twinery.

I cut additional shamrocks from another coordinating paper, folding them to give them some shape and added them to the layout.  I like how everything pops off the page!
To make my picture stand out on the patterned background, I spread some white paint as a backdrop and added some painted lines using a tutorial I found on Evalicious' blog.  And of course, I had to use my green chevron camera flair pin from Evalicious!
A little more Honeydew Twine around my picture and some green washi tape complete the look!
This is the latest Twinery Challenge and if you play along with us, you could win this fabulous prize package! Two spools of our Twine AND a $25 gift card to Michaels! For all of the details, and to link up, see the original challenge post here.
