With Susan Stringfellow's sketch in mind, and Scraptastic's May kit, Destinations Unknown in hand, I knew just what I wanted to do for this Easter Sunday photo of my dad. And it was going to be colorful! But before chopping up those papers willy-nilly, I planned out the sunburst design by drawing a template on printer paper and assigning colors to the various pieces. Assembling was then quite easy.
Did you catch the shine? Although we had quite a laid back Easter Sunday, I wanted this page to be special. After piecing the sunburst pattern, I used gold mist to add a bit of sparkle.
The 2 circular Road Trip icons from Chic Tags fit perfectly into those
over-sized bottle caps from my stash. I used the striped vellum to
fashion an envelope for my tag and decorated it with all sorts of fun
tidbits, including a Studio Calico speech bubble, Ormolu flair, and October Afternoon "doo-dads", all from the kit and add-on.
The little birdies (originally included in one of the October kits), were a playful addition. Tweet, tweet!
