Starburst - Parchment Wall Decoration

Well now, I was thinking the other day that it's been awhile since I have offered up a parchment challenge here on the blog!!  Soooooo, having said that, let's see what we can do about it :))

This time I am going to share one of my own designs with's called "Starburst".  I will provide the pattern WITHOUT instructions and your task is to present your own interpretation of the pattern and when complete, please send me a photo/scan of your project!!  I always love to see all the different ways another person "sees" a pattern and how it can be made :))  With your permission, I will always happily share works from challenges (and other fun events) in the Guest Gallery, so don't be shy.....and don't think your work has to be perfect.....we're here to have fun and to challenge ourselves....and please, please, please, it is not a competition....there are no prizes!!!  So come on and join me and let's add your project to what I have made from my pattern.....

Anyone up for the challenge??

Starburst - Wall Decoration

Starburst Pattern        
**To print your pattern:  Right click on the pattern image and on the drop down menu, click on "save image to".  Click on "save" to wherever you want it to be saved on your computer.....or an external drive.  When you are ready to print, it can be reduced, or enlarged, to suit your project size.**

As you can see, I made my pattern into an A4 size wall decoration, however, in the challenge you can do whatever you like and any size you like!!  Use any techniques/tools/grids, etc. you like!!  You can combine other crafts (ie:  decoupage, embroidery, 3D, etc.) with your parchment.....step out of the box and see what you come up with!!  Most of all, challenge yourself and HAVE FUN!!!!  :))
