September Potpourri
« on: August 31, 2012, 08:55:20 pm »
My very first Challenge!!  I'm so excited, I hope you enjoy trying it.

I was looking around Pinterest and something caught my eye.  I think they are quite popular now.  I just HAD to try one!  This month's challenge is to do a Sunburst layout.

I found a very easy tutorial on the Bella Boulevard blog:  http://bellablvd.typepad.com/bella_blvd/2012/08/designer-tutorials-creating-sunburst-backgrounds.html.  After several tries, I found (for me) it was much easier to use a few sheets of double sided paper in a paper line for the sunbeams.  I am not good at matching colors, and the coordinating papers helped pull it together (I used Sassafrass Lass).  The hints she gave in the tutorial (such as doing the corners first) really helped.  After I had all the sunbeams glued down, I took my Sharpie marker and drew all the stitching.  My photo and journalling went on the layout last.

There's a whole page of sunbursts on Pinterest!  http://pinterest.com/scrapstitcher/sunbursts-scrapbooking/

You don't have to do a full page sunburst, you can do half a page or even a card.  Get those creative scrappy minds thinking!



I can't wait to see what you scrappy gals come up with!

Oh Sherrie...this is soo awesome.  Love the sunbeam background, your faux stitching, and your journalling/doodling is to die for.  Awesome challenge.  Thanks!

Great job Holli!  I love how you chose colors that matched her clothes!  The pleated flowers are a nice touch, too!
