TLC384 ~ Let the Sunburst Shine ~ (7/2/12)
Hello everyone....it's me again with another fun technique!! I have been seeing sunbursts all over the internet....they are so trendy and easy to make!! Soooo let's get sunny with a few rays on our creations ~~ you can use up your paper scraps and use any design you want....how fun is that !!!
To make the sunburst you:
1. Pick out your papers...you can use patterned paper or cardstock. You can also stamp or emboss it for a little texture.
2. Cut the strips at an angle, wider at one end and thinner or to a point at the other end.
3. Adhere the rays to the background cardstock or patterned paper...let the strips hang off the edge of the paper and then trim the edges when the you are finished with your design. You can add a sun or use a stamp as the center image. I have seen the rays used as a flash for a camera and also as a background for a beach scene. I also saw the cutest card using white rays over a white sky with white snowflakes for a winter scene.
4 You can even use sun ray dies if you have them
5. Be creative and have fun!!!
