Hi OA fans! It's Amy here today with your Thursday sketch! Have you noticed the trend in sunbursts lately? I have! They are so fun! There are so many ways to interpret them, too! I've seen them created using mists, patterned paper, taking up small portions of a layout, or even over the entire page! They certainly add a lot of energy to any layout! Today, I thought I'd incorporate a sunburst into our weekly sketch. Up until today, I hadn't given the sunburst a try yet, so I thought what better way to give it a go, than to include it in our sketch and see what others come up with, too! Here is my take on the sketch, I rotated it 90 degrees and flipped the sunburst so that the large beams were closer to my photos. I used a variety of October Afternoon papers ranging from Modern Homemaker, Five & Dime, Farmhouse, and even from our upcoming Cakewalk collection to create my pink burst of energy pointing to the fun photos of my daughter just playing and being silly.
I asked Marcy to join in on my sketch with her own unique rendition. I have to say I was SUPER anxious to see what she would come up with! And I LOVE how her page turned out!
This is what Marcy had to say about her project.
"I stayed really close to the sketch... I love sunbursts. :) I substituted the three photos for four and moved the title up."
I just love the rainbow effect that she created, don't you!? It's gorgeous, and yet still "SUPER" hero cool! SUPER job, Marcy!
Well, that's going to do it for me today! I hope you got a creative BURST with our sunburst themed sketch this week! I hope you decide to play along and upload your gorgeous creations to our Flickr gallery found here. Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!
