Hey Hey! It’s Michelle back here today with a new rainbow inspired layout share. I’ve been itching to make something with all the patterns and colours from the Sunkissed collection since it arrived, and even though theres similar layouts out there I just couldn’t myself. The papers practically stuck themselves down haha
I started by cutting and tearing pieces of almost all the patterns within the A5 paper stack, plus a couple from the 12×12 papers. Enough to create a bunch of strips in different sizes to layer together down the side of the page. I originally had them overlapping the edge of the right hand side from top to bottom, but then changed direction after I created the background on cardstock.
I made the Rainbow background using shimmer inks and plastic packing technique to create a watercolour effect, and then ended up covering most of it with the paper strips. Its always a shame to cover up something so pretty.
The photo I’ve documented is a family snap from a couple years back that I realise now as Im typing this I’ve already scrapped. Haha Does this happen to anyone else? You can see in the close up above that Ive sewn through a majority of the paper strips to add a little extra detail to the layout. I’ve also adhered some of the strips using foam tape to give them a little dimension. This made adding the photo a little tricky as it needed different depths of foam adhesive to fit over all the layers.
I backed the photo with the pretty rainbow splatter pattern paper that you can find in the A5 paper stack.
I created the title with the ‘Feelin’ Fine’ piece from the 12×12 cut apart paper – Fun in the Sun, plus one of the last remaining gold glitter title words I have left. I might have to add more of these packs to my collection as I just love them! Both title pieces worked perfectly in rainbow order, right where I needed them to be.
At the top left of the paper strips I created a pink cluster, in line with all the pink coloured strips. I’ve used a mix of florals, stickers, puffy stickers and bits from the cut apart papers
And then I replicated the cluster at the bottom within the blue hue section also. The florals I’ve used are from the Floral Ephemera pack, something I’ve not even touched as I was so floral fussy cutting crazy on previous layouts.
Heres a closer look below at all the layers created with all the pretty paper strips.
Well friends thats all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by to see my latest rainbow inspired layout using the Sunkissed Collection. I’m sure I’ll be back again soon with yet another rainbow creation, as I just cant help myself. This collection is just so perfect for that kind of scrapping.
Until next time, Happy Scrapping!
