On a Summer Afternoon~

So My Studio Calico Trendspotting class assignment was on Sunbursts.

I love sunbursts!

I love them on cards, layouts and just about anything you can put them on.

However, this one has been a labor of love.

Each and every step presented itself with some type of issue. Sigh!

But, today Laura at Bella Blvd has a quick and easy tutorial to show you how to make your own fabulous sunburst.

I just wish I had seen this three days ago.

My layout~

I used CCR to elongate a basic triangle shape from George to make several of my ray shapes.

I then hand cut the rest to fill in my shape.

A close up~

I added a little rough stitching and several sticker embellishments.

In the end I love the total effect of the sunburst shape and bright colors reminding me of this Summer afternoon spent on my mother’s porch swing.

Although next time I do believe I will follow Laura’s instructions.

I used~
Bella Blvd Sunshine & Happiness Popcicle Kisses paper, Journaling Stickers and Miniatures, Baby Boy On the Go paper and various other Bella Blvd paper scraps, White Cardstock
CCR and George and Basic Shapes
