Looking back through my layouts I’ve found that I love to create bursting backgrounds!

Once again I backed a burst design with patterned papers and added texture and dimension with hand stitching and epoxy border stickers.

I made bursts with watercolors and topped each section with die cuts representing things I love at 30 years old.

Sewn paper strips in a burst against a light pink background make such a fun background for a photo!

I’d love to see how you’ve used bursts on your own layouts, so please leave a comment and a link to your page.

I look forward to seeing you again next Wednesday, when I’m spotlighting a very talented scrapbooker. See you then!
