Hi there friends! Danni here with my take on the Rainbow Love theme for this week. I was incredibly inspired by all the fussy cut-able elements in the 12×12 patterned papers in the new Daydream collection, so I decided to have some fun with the little rainbows in Up in the Clouds patterned paper.
I used my craft knife to carefully cut all the little rainbows out of the Up in the Clouds paper, being careful to keep the rest of paper intact as I was planning on using it later. Once I had done all my cutting (very therapeutic by the way!) I adhered a piece of plain navy cardstock to the back of the 12×12 sheet, so it peeked through all the little rainbow-shaped windows.
I went ahead and took some time to pop all the rainbows up on dimensional foam, which I then adhered over the top of the patterned paper/cardstock background. I made sure to offset each rainbow slightly to allow the cardstock to peek through, which gives depth and shadow.
I chose a sweet photo of my little girl and added some simple paper mats of navy and pink from the 6×8 paper stack, distressing the edges lightly for some texture. I build “This Sweet Love” title from die cut titles pack to right of the photo, creating a left-right downward diagonal to follow my daughter’s eyeline in the photo; this helps create a natural flow to the page.
I built a floral cluster at opposite corners of photo following the same diagonal line, using die cut ephemera flowers and some moths from accessory stickers. I also included a tiny word sticker above my photo and cluster of them as a subtitle below my main title. I love using the tiny word stickers for this, and the sentiments are always perfect.
For a little shimmer I added some gold ink splatters delicately around the page, then tucked in three of the tiny paper flowers from the sequins & flowers pack within my embellishment clusters. I added some further detail to my floral clusters by tucking in some of the gold leaf sequins from the sequins & flowers.
To add the finishing touch, I chose an assortment of sequins to add sparkle around my page, adding them in three clusters like I would enamel dots. The background of this page looked so impactful that I did not need to add much embellishment to have an incredible layout, which made this page come together so easily!
I really hope you enjoyed this page and maybe got a little inspiration! I have a process video linked below if you would like to watch it all come together. Happy scrapping!
