Charlotte had her preschool graduation a few weeks ago. Where does the time go? She LOVED her school and her teachers. Part of the logo for their school is a sunburst, so when I saw the 6/8 sketch a Studio Calico, I was inspired to create a sunburst on my page.
And then I also saw the colors of the recent mood board at Scrap Around the World. I thought the yellow and black would be perfect for this page! The diagonal lines in the straws inspired me to use the yellow lined paper from the Crate Paper Boys Rule collection for my "sunburst".
I started by cutting random "rays" for the sunburst and then stitching them down on the page. The I dug out a lot of black accents, including wood veneer stars that I inked black, and some die cuts and chipboard from Crate Paper Styleboard and more Boys rule.
Of course I had to add some black splatters and for a little bit of subtle color, I added a few light mint colored vellum stars from Boys Rule.
I am SOO happy I am coming out of my scrappy rut! More to come this week!
Stay scrappy my friends!
