Using my 40 % off coupon at Michael's, I bought a set of 2 canvases. I used one for this project and have another one for a future project. I created a Chevron stencil using the Chevron border in my Silhouette software. It took me a little bit to figure it out but once I got it, painting the yellow stripes wasn't too difficult.
I cut the saying, "Here Comes the Sun" out of blue vinyl I had in my stash. Then the pennant bunting is just triangles cut from left over scrapbooking paper. I glued the white ribbon on top of it with my trusty glue gun then glued it on to the canvas.
I love how it turned out and it's my first project featuring Chevron stripes! I think it is going to go above the summer mantle. I'm wanting my summer mantle to be bright colors and fun and I'm thinking the blue, yellow, and red I used in this project might be the springboard my summer mantle decor. Stay tuned - I'll show you pics when it is finished. :)
