Rainbow Colours

The previous entry should have been dated 1st June, but it took me too long and by the time I hit 'publish' it was 2nd June! So here goes for the second day of the colour challenge - A Rainbow of Scrapbook Pages.
Today Shimelle said "If were talking colour, we've got to talk rainbows, right? Let's get the rainbow discussion started with some rainbow scrapbook pages."

Some of my favourite rainbow coloured paper ranges are Lime Rickey and Urban Prairie from Basic Grey and Surprise from Scenic Route.

Rainbow layouts that I have made in the past:
'Ever Changing Colours' was about my daughter's taste in clothing changing from all pink as a young child, to multi coloured as an older child, then to black, white and grey as a teenager. I machine stitched a black circle several times onto white Bazzill card stock. Then used letter stickers from various Basic Grey Collections. The journalling block was a BG stamp. This one was on the BG gallery for a while.

'The Eden Project' was again made with white card stock for the background and the multi size photos showing the different colours of the blooms mounted onto black card stock. I added a row of coloured brads in the bottom left. The title was created with the QuicKutz and Provocraft letter stickers. This page was designed for the Crafty Pastimes Design Team Gallery.

'Jack and the Beanstalk' was a LO to record the pantomime my daughter took part in last season. I used Basic Grey Colour Me Silly papers and a page map for this LO. I cut the image from the front sheet of the collection pack to go under the 'Jack' part of the title which is American Craft Thicker letter stickers. The other letters for the title are Making Memories Glittery letter stickers. The leafy 'beanstalk' is ribbon from Cardinal Colours. The little resin flowers have gems in the centres and are from Lakeland Limited.

It's a Colourful World' is a LO I made at a Scrapaholix retreat some years ago. the papers are by Scenic Route. It is a photo of my baby sister back in the 1960's.

This is my most recent rainbow layout, showing the 'Colours of Disney' from our recent trip to California. I used Rime Rickey papers from Basic Grey, and it was inspired by a LO by Allison Davis in the May '09 edition of Creating Keepsakes.

10.20pm Just updating to say I have read the second post for today's challenge and will have a go at using the tutorial and the rainbow border, but not tonight! Good night all x

Later that week: ...And here is my LO for this challenge, I printed the rainbow image onto photographic paper, and used it together with Basic Grey Lime Rickey papers. Just loved the bird paper! Used the front sheet from the collection pack for the journalling strip! Lots of metallic rainbow coloured dots from Paper Chase. The photos were taken on our last day in California when we visited Beverley Hills on our way from Venice Beach to Hollywood.
