Hello Lovelies. It is with much excitement that I bring you a layout created with the delightful Vintage Artistry Sunburst. I was so excited to create with this collection, as I have many beach photos. I am fortunate to live on the Gulf Coast of Florida, and have the most beautiful beaches within a short driving distance of my home. The hard part was choosing which photos to use. Sunburst is filled with the most beautiful summery colors. There are flamingos and palm trees, seashells and seahorses, flowers and butterflies, and so much more! There are also a solid colors in the Foundations pack with all of the coordinating colors in the collection. As always, the coordinating products in the Sunburst collection can give you endless possibilities to create with. I chose to use a paper from the 12x12 collection pack. Flamingo Terrace. I machine stitched around the paper, and this was my foundation.
I decided to showcase the elements in the Cluster Kit, and added bits and pieces from the Ephemera Bits collection as well as the Laser Cut collection. But there is so much in the Cluster Kit, that you really can use just what is in the kit to create many projects. The beautiful part of the cluster kit is, you can follow the cluster patterns exactly as pictured on the packet, or you can design your own cluster, as I did, for the focal part of this layout. It is fun to collect and layer the elements, and build the clusters using your own style. Use the photos of the clusters on the kit as a starting point, and let your imagination just take off.
I love the intricacy of the net laser cut. And the yellow Frangipani (Plumeria) flowers are exactly what I had in my garden a few years back. These laser cuts are truly beautiful! Of course the seahorses are darling!! The colors are all so beautiful. It was simply so easy to do all of the layering.
I used one of the the little flag banners to string along the bottom of the cluster. The tiny clothes pins hold each side of the banner in place. I cut one of the acetate film strips in half, and placed one half on top, and the other half on the bottom under the cluster. I added a couple of butterflies on the page. I cant believe I didn't use any flowers other than the laser cut flowers!! Unheard of for me!!
I hope you enjoyed looking at this layout as much as I enjoyed creating it. See what the other designers have created with Sunburst. You will be delighted and inspired!
