I have seen layouts with the Sunburst before & have thought about doing one but never really looked into how you make them. I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make one.
I really like how it turned out for this photo. I had 3 photos in mind for this sketch but this one definitely works especially since it is also a layout for About a Boy challenge.
Their challenge is to make a layout that is about a typical boy. What boy doesnt like to dress up like a Superhero. There are 2 reasons why I added Spongebob to this layout. #1- I didnt have much of this shade of yellow paper. #2- There is an episode of Spongebob where it shows Patrick & Spongebob's favorite Superheros. They even dress up like them.
Here is their sketch & my take on it.

I would like to Thank my Peeps at Club CK for tips & instructions on how to make the Sunburst background. It was very helpful. I pretty much followed the instructions at SG but just measured out my own size rays.I even added the twine between the rays. I used Tacky tape to hold the twine in place.
I inked the Thickers with the Distress Ink first & didnt quite like the results so I added the stickles. I was lucky enough to have just the right colors. I also added some stickles to the star after I inked it with Tattered Angels. I had to use a paintbrush because the sprayer clogged up.
I hope everyone has a Great rest of the week!
