Today I want to share how I made a sunburst kind of layout using four different 6''x6'' papers from a paper pad. This is something I have been thinking about for some time but never gotten around to actually doing before and now I'm happy I did it during my vacation because I think the result is fun and it was a great way to use those paper pads which I love so much!
First I choose four different patterned papers and decided which part of the paper I wanted to have towards the middle of the sun burst. I used a protractor and divided the middle angles of the four papers in thirds, 30 degrees each.
I placed all the papers together with the divided angels pointing towards the middle and then I numbered the segments like this and cut them out. Then I placed them in numerical order and put them together with tape.
Turn it over and suddenly you hadve a unique paper for a special project!
My first try with this technique was with a winter themed colection by Bo Bunny. I cut along the edges nad chalked so that I could place my new sun burst on a piece of white paper to have a border.
For my second sunburst I decided to make a 2-page layout and use half of the sunburst on each page.
Side by side they look like this!
On July 10th we got a new family member! His name is Kosmos. He was born on April 17th and he is half Norwegian forest cat and half domestic short-haired cat. We believe he will be short haired when he grows up. He is just the sweetest little guy and he loves to play and cuddle and he is perfect with the kids eventhough they aren't always perfect with him...
Of course I couldn't resist decorating the pail we keep his food in :) Hubby just shook his head and smiled at me.
So, now you know! In the future there will be cat layouts! I'm so happy!
Have a nice day!
