look again at your supplies

I love to look at the scrapbooking supplies I already have and use them in a slightly different way.  I actually like to do that with many things besides scrapbook supplies too actually.  I had my Tim Holtz stencils out and I was thinking about the sun burst one and if I could turn it into a rainbow to co ordinate with my Granddaughter’s dress in her Easter photo…. sure enough, it can be done!  I used painters tape across the part of the stencil that I didn’t want to use to block the areas. (you can use regular tape just make sure to stick it to your clothes a few times first to decrease the stickiness, that way it won’t ruin your layout when you take it off)  I used distress ink in the colours of the rainbow.

When I was happy with the rainbow, I added lots of die cuts and used them as a frame and accents for the photo as opposed to a card base as the large frame is intended to be used as. (I believe all of the dies are from Spellbinders that I used and the title was cut with the Silhouette)   The thread I used was from my Mom’s sewing kit from many years ago and the buttons are antique as well.

I like the final layout very much.  I can’t believe how different that stencil looks just by colouring each ray a different colour.
