Rainbow layouts | Anna Komenda

Hello Pinkfesh fans. it's Anna Komenda here with another batch of inspiration for you. I love rainbows and I love incorporation them into my designs. The more colors on the page the better :)I have two very colorful layouts for you today. One of them is all made with papers and embellishments and second one has a mixed media background. 

Let's start with the page inspired by the current challenge: rainbow color palette and cutfiles and die cuts. This color scheme matches perfectly with brand new "Stay at home" line so my layout is all made with it. 

"Stay at home" collection is designed to scrapbook all the moments we spend at home recently, with the lockdown happening almost around the world. Activities like playing games, cooking, gardening, making art - all of that with the entire family - are the bright side of this situation. When also celebrated birthday of my younger daughter staying home and connection online with the rest of the family. I am so grateful for the technology right now :)

We had a rainbow themed party so June challenge is just the perfect one to scrapbook this day. I picked the paper with colorful squares, called "Better things ahead" as a part of my background. I am in love with Fabric bows included in many Pinkfresh Studio lines. Such a clever embellishment! I mounted few of them and glued them color on color on my background paper. I also created few of my own bows, using papers from 6*6 paper pad and fantastic new die called "Artistic bows". 

I finished my composition adding title made of puffy alpha stickers from the same collection and few stickers and ephemera pieces.  Colorful enamel dots are the cherry on the top of this project. 

Second layout I have for you today is also made with "Let's stay home" line. This time I didn't scrapbook any indoor adventure. I was inspired by the rainbows and framed a photo of the rainbow. It's not just any rainbow - it's the prettiest, most perfect rainbow I have ever seen. I was visiting my friend last year in Australia and we vere driving by car in the heavy rain. And then, out of the sudden, rain stopped and we saw this jewel on the sky. Of course we had to stop to snap photos :) The arch was so big it didn't fit into just one photo frame.

I started making this page with sheet of watercolor paper and set of Distress Oxide Inks in rainbow color order. I used brand new and super fun "Nested chevron" cling rubber stamp. Have you seen this new line of products at Pinkfresh Studio site? It's a background stamp but you can remove pieces from it to combine them in different colors. I only used one piece and stamped with it several times, each time with different color. Next, I used clear water to move the pigment in Distress Oxides creating beautiful, colorful washes. 

This kind of colorful and bold background doesn't need much of embellishing. I placed my photo with a frame made with paper form 6*6 pad (my favorite pattern from this collection) and embellished it with flower clusters from ephemera pack.

They seemed a little bit "too white" so I used the same Oxide inks to color them. Thanks to that the blended in better. I created a title using small and very versatile mini puffy alpha stickers. 

Colorful hearts fussy cut from another paper were a perfect finishing touch for this page along with enamel dots. 

I recorded a process video in case you want to learn how to make similar background.

 That is all for today. I hope my rainbow pages put a little smile on your faces. It's always a very joyful process when i make a rainbow page. Thank you all for stopping by.

XO Anna
