Hi and hello, Jana here with you again. I have a fun new Layout for you today. Have you ever tried to catch a rainbow on a photo? I´ve tried it and I would say I always failed… it´s never that beautiful like on the sky… So, today I wanted to bring a rainbow on my Paper and for that I grabbed a CutFile from the JustNick Store and the Vicki Boutin Watercolors – one of my new favorites!
Look at this rainbow on my desk, I love the colors!
I picked a scalloped background CutFile (https://justnick.myshopify.com/products/scallop-background) from the JustNick Store and colored it like a rainbow… started with red and ended with dark blue. I wanted to layer the scallops more, wanted to add some machine stitching too and so I decided to cut them all apart and I really like how it looks
I wanted to have a rainbow on my paper so I grabbed the same colors and started to paint them on the white Foundation Paper. I also used some plastic to get some messy mixed colors. Some splatters and the background were done. BIG love!
Once everything was dry I started to arrange my scallop rainbow onto the rainbow on the background paper. But I did not placed color on color… I love how that looks! When I was satisfied with it I went to my sewing machine and stitched everything down. Because of the stitching I was able to curl up the scallops just a bit – for more dimensions!
I wanted to stay in the color scheme and so I started to look into the Vicki Boutin “All the Good Things” DieCuts and Frames Pack – but I only found a few things that hat the same colors and was matching the theme/feel of the Layout. So I needed to look deeper in the Collection and found the awesome butterfly patterned paper with aaaaallllll of the colors. I fussy cut a few of them out and arranged them with the other Elements on the stitched and layered scallop rainbow.
This page makes me really happy and came together pretty quick! Once I picked the CutFile and the colors for my rainbow… this took some time! But, look at the finished Layout; it reminds me of summer and fun! Can´t wait for it
I also have a process video for you to watch – https://youtu.be/qnqqwmQRzfU
A BIG thank you goes to Nicole from JustNick for offering us some free CutFiles to play with them, I really love them and can´t wait to use some more on my next projects!
