Chasing Rainbows // Joanna Bandelin June 18, 2020 07:00

Hi friends, Joanna Bandelin here sharing a happy rainbow scrapbook page. I used the Chasing Rainbows cut file from JustNick.

 Rainbows are one of my favorite things  to add to my scrapbook pages. My kids love them and I love them, and they are so perfect for spring pages! This cut file went well with the photo of my family and I after hiking to the top of the mountain.

I cut out my rainbow nice and big so it filled up the page. Then backed it with vibrant colors. I did some messy ink splatters in blue and teal on the background before adhering the rainbow and photo.

 

To add some dimension to my page I fussy cut lots of butterflies from a Vicki Boutin pattern paper. Then added a few on pop dots.

I used my trusty cloud punch to make lots of clouds for the bottom of the rainbow. To finish off my page I added a bit of journaling about our adventure.

Thanks for stopping by!

 


Rainbow Baby | Majken Pullin April 23, 2020 07:00

Hello crafty friends!  Majken here with you today, and I hope you and your loved ones are doing well.  I'm sharing some rainbow inspiration today using Chasing Rainbows and the Sketch Block Alpha.  I decided my rainbow was going to follow the color pattern you see in a secondary rainbow where the colors are reversed from the standard ROYGBIV you see in a primary rainbow.  I used Pink Paislee's Bloom Street by Paige Evans (with some help on orange from Horizon).

Rainbow Baby

I cut out "rainbows" and the rainbow outline from the Chasing Rainbow and "BABY" from the Sketch Block Alpha cut files first using white textured cardstock.  I decided on the papers for the inside of the rainbow bands and cut each out using my Cameo.  (To do this, release the compound path of the rainbow, remove the outside edges, and create an offset for each band to make them slightly larger to glue behind the rainbow outline.  You could also cut each without offsetting to fit them inside the rainbow like a puzzle if you prefer.)

A second look at a different angle.  You can see I scattered some matching enamel dots inside the rainbow bands for some additional texture.  I popped up some ephemera flowers using 3D foam adhesive to add even more dimension!

For the title, I left "BABY" unbacked because I wanted the pretty watercolor background to peek through.  I trimmed some 3D foam adhesive to pop it up too. I snipped the "s" off the end of "rainbows" to modify the word for how I used it.

I layered my photo with different papers and added journaling and other ephemera to finish my layout. 

I hope you are inspired to create your own rainbow!  Here are the cut files I used on today's layout.

Love Spring | Vicki Parker March 31, 2020 07:00

Hi lovely friends, today I am sharing a colourful spring layout with you.

 

 

I used the fabulous Chasing Rainbows cut file available in store here:

 

 

I started by using the inverse of the cut file so that I had just the inside rainbow pieces. With watercolours, I painted them in rainbow colours - one colour for each colour in the rainbow. I then backed all of the arcs with foam and stuck them to the layout slightly off the page and cut off the excess.

 

 

I then used the same watercolours to add some paint around the arcs to add that extra watercolour effect - I also painted some at the bottom of each side to look like drips.

 

 

It gave a nice 'messy' watercolour effect that I was really happy with. I then built the layout using lots of the Paige Evans Bloom Street collection from Pink Paislee and some fabulous acrylic umbrellas from Bramble Fox.

 

 

I hope this inspires you to do a rainbow layout for yourself and I'll see you next month! Thanks so much for looking x
