Sunrays Tutorial

Hello! This is my first attempt at doing a tutorial!! Yikes!! Anyway ,because I have gotten some E-mails requesting instructions on how to do this Sun-ray technique, I decided to give it a go. It is a real simple technique and I want to give my daughter Theresa credit , she showed me how to do this.
Supplies:
A sponge, I used a jumbo dauber
Ink pad, I used Memento's cantaloupe
Post-it note, I used 4x6
card stock, I used 41/4 x51/2 piece. You can use any size you wish it to be.



Picture of the supplies I used.



I put two pieces of post-it down across where I want my sun ray to stop.



I put dot to mark about the middle of the end of horizon, then using another post-it , place the corner on the dot, as shown it the photo.



Decide how wide you want your rays ( I just eyeballed it). Then sponge on the ink staying mostly to the edge of your post-it.



Keeping your finger on the corner where the dot is, lift and pivot the post-it up for another ray.



Keep doing the same , hold , lift and pivot.



On the last ray, I removed the post-it and sponged right on the horizon post-it.



Here it is all done!


I hope I made this clear and not confusing. I would love to hear back on how you liked this !
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
