Hello Cocoa Vanilla friends and welcome to my second project with the Legendary collection! Today, I decided to stretch my creative muscles and scrapbook a photo of myself after my pinning ceremony – that felt pretty legendary if I do say so – and to create a rainbow! The colors in this collection are super saturated so it was perfect for this type of project.
I started with a rainbow cut file I had in my hoard of cut files and backed it with some of the papers from the collection – luckily the cutfile only had five swatches for color so I was able to make a pretty convincing rainbow with the papers in the line. After backing my cut file and my clouds, I tore one of the patterned papers to create the illusion of sky and layered a few clouds in the background on foam for more interest and dimension. Then it was time to work on embellishing!
For this layout, I did something I rarely do – I stuck down my title first! I knew I wanted my title to be Super Star and that I wanted to scatter stars across my page so it just made sense to do it that way. I created a cluster using some ephemera and propped up part of my title on foam stickers for added dimension. I really loved the medal that said “certified legend” so of course that went into my cluster and I added an extra few stars to repeat the theme.
I chose to mat my photo on one of the more colorful sheets of paper to repeat the paper in the background and created a cluster around it using a mix of the die cuts and cardstock stickers on the other end of my rainbow. I love the flow of the page with the rainbow connecting the left and right side of the page – it makes the whole layout feel super fun!
Finally, to help me balance some of the white space, I tore an edge on the bottom of my paper, added a bit more patterned paper and a few bits of ephemera to add some color and pop at the bottom of the layout. A few enamel dots sprinkled across the page completed this layout!
I hope you enjoyed this page and it inspired you to pull out a cutfile and some patterned papers and to add some color to your day! See you next time.
