My layout is very simple today, stamped stitching with Stitchery Stamps
and using Blending Brushes with 4 different coloured ink pads.
I have seen the starburst kinda layouts done before with paper, BUT I wanted to keep it very clean and crisp using Stamps and Ink only.

I drew a starburst design on my Very Vanilla 12x12 Cardstock with a light pencil

no 2 triangles were the same size, some bigger, some smaller.

Next I used Memento Tuxedo Black Ink to stamp various Stitchery lines
within the starburst to define the areas.

Next I cut myself another template with 3 different size starbursts
to add colour using Blending brushes to the interior of the circular shape.

First colour I chose was Coastal Cabana and filled in a couple of sections.
Then I used Calypso Coral to fill in a couple more of them.
Followed up with Orchid Oasis in other sections.
Lastly I used Evening Evergreen BUT I brushed the excess off before adding it to the page.

Once I was happy with all the colours I then set about encompassing the shaded areas
with random words from Today is The Day Memories and More Card Pack.
I also used a full 3" x 4" card with a phrase on it,
which I used the layering circles dies to cut to size.
Then I used a 4" x 6" card with co-ordinating colours to layer behind the circle.
The title of the page layout is 365, twenty-four seven
which was also cut out of a 4" x 6"card.
Lastly I added a small layer of Calypso Coral behind my photo.

It is something very different to what I normally make, BUT I like the clean and simple view
that this layout has taken on by keeping everything minimalist.

Up Next is Beth Rush with her AMAZING layout
