Something New

So I have a template for you today but not of the usual variety. Sunburst (or sunray) papers seem all the rage right now, and I found a tutorial on how to make it. I tried it for myself and thought it was very easy to do. The template today is the result. The triangle I used didn't have a sharp point at the top, so I was able to get an actual circular "sun" area from where the rays spread out.

There is a layer for the base paper and a sunburst layer that can be moved around to your desired location. After that, either clip papers to the layers or fill in with the colors you want. Then you can play around with things like opacity, texture, blur, etc to get different looks. I think it's pretty nifty. Oh, and if you don't like the "sun" area, you can do a couple of things. Either move the layer so that it does not show on the page or hide it behind a photo. Or if you're feeling up to it, try making your own paper using a pointed corner triangle. I promise it's super easy.

I have both 8.5x11 and 12x12 sizes for this template. Here is what they look like:

Thank you - those rays are a little intimidating. Maybe this will make it easier :)

Thank you for the template AND for the link to the tutorial. I will try it myself, too. :)
Have a great day.
