Now, I must admit, when I first saw this one, I was stumped. Even if I have admired Nicole's work for some time now and that I know that sunburst patterns have been and still are very trendy right now, I was totally clueless in how to adapt it in a design. What to do? In the last year, I have learned that when a sketch seems overwhelming, just scale it down, so that's how I started. It still wasn't doing it for me so I went a bit further and found a few layouts in my inspiration folder that had that sunburst pattern in them. I was immediately drawn to Ania-Maria Wolniak's takes on this trend, ran with it, and designed this layout:
I used a lot of Basic Grey's Serenade on this one... Truthfully, I love this collection so much that it took me a few moments to gather up the courage to make that first cut... ;) How sad, I know! Hee!Hee! I also added some Tim Holtz, Tattered Angels, Pink Paislee, Maya Road, American Crafts, Bazzill Basics, DMC and Queen & Co. This layout is all about how I have always admired my dear cousin, Lisa (shown in the photo), and how much I hope to know as much as her when I "grow up."
And yes, the CS girls have done it again! And to now surprise, they seem to have had no problem adapting the sketch to their design. WOW!
