make your own RAINBOW - Scrap Our Stash April Stash Challenge!

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

It's beginning to look like Spring!...uh, sort of.
Here in the South, April certainly has been full of showers...more like torrential downpours!

So, to put some sunshine in this gloomy day, I am sharing the LO that I did for the April
Stash Challenge at Scrap Our Stash.  The challenge is to do a Spring LO, using Spring colors
and to also include a journaling card, a paper clip and some sort of 3D embellishment.

Here is what I came up with!

I wanted to scrap this series of photos of my daughter running with her ribbon twirler from last summer.
I couldn't quite think if how I had wanted to scrap them, but this paper from the 
Wanderlust collection from Studio Calico inspired me!  I love the colors and thought they contrasted
well with the vibrant green of the grass.  And since it was lots of loose, overlapping circles,
I thought that would work with the pictures.  I also punched them out with a large circle punch.

I used my gelatos in matching colors to make the circles of paint from the paper tie in with the
background by repeating the size and shapes...I mounted one photo to the pocketed journaling
card I used and clipped the speech bubble paper clip to it.  I used as many 3D embellishments
I could find in coordinating colors and shapes that went with my theme.

I cannot get enough of these acrylic letters from Crate Paper.  They were part
of the Scrapbook Circle April kit and I know I will use every last one!  

I had lots of fun playing with shapes and media on this layout and hope you will
do the same, or at least get inspired to make your own Spring page for the challenge!
