A Tale of Two Trends

Chevrons and the color orange are two trends that have something in common. They both have a lot of energy. Today's inspiration piece at Scrapbook News and Review magazine managed to capture both trends. I thought they were the perfect combination for scrapping about superhero Easter eggs.

You might be wondering why this is a Super Hero Easter Egg Redux. Well, that's because we used the exact same theme Easter egg Dye kit the year before. I live on an island, and there just isn't a whole lot of variety from year to year. We were pretty sure the store was selling the leftover kits from the prior year.

Though the layouts about the kit are quite different, I kept a few details the same.I used some of the same letters, stars and bright colors on both. When I made the redux layout, I didn't have anymore of the letter r. I turned a J over and used it in the place of R. It looked a little different from the other letters. So I overlapped the star on the curve of the J.
