Hey friends! Brianna Lepper here today sharing a layout focusing on the new Plaid and Polka Dot 12x12 Rainbow Petite Prints. I paired it with the Over The Rainbow collection and pulled out the coordinating colors to match it. Here's my page:

Here are the colors I used: Swimming Pool, Bubblegum, Tangerine, Bumblebee and Citrus. To start, I cut two 12 x .5"inch strips of each color and then trimmed one strip down to three 4 x .5"inch and the other strip to four 3 x .5"inch strips. I wanted to be able to display both sides of the paper so I folded them in half at somewhat of an angle. I went ahead and set them aside and got to work on my background.

For my background, I took a piece of thick white cardstock and stamped the rainbow stamp from the Gnome Sweet Gnome stamp set using some Distress Oxide inks in coordinating colors. I chose Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Twisted Citron. I stamped the rainbow several times and then did some ink blending right over the stamped images. So pretty!!

I then traced a vertical line down the center of my page and lined up each folded paper along each side of it. I adhered each one down and then ran the page through my sewing machine. I love all of the texture that it added to my page. For my title, I chose a few pieces from the Chit Chat pack and popped it up on foam tape. I added it under my photo that I had matted using the 6x6 Paper Pad.

Next, I embellished tone on tone using the Mini Icons Stickers, Puffy Icons Stickers, Rainbow Sprinkles and the Spring Garden Shape Sprinkles.

I wanted a couple more pops of black that would match my title, so I stamped out a couple of phrases from that same stamp set on the top left and bottom right of my design. I also added in some tangled thread to match each color. Here's one last look at this colorful page.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope that I've inspired you in some way. Have you tried creating a simple stamped background or tried adding folded paper like this to your page? It's a great way to get lots of pattern or color onto your page. I've done it using a circular design and now a vertical line. It would be fun to do it on a diagonal as well! See you next time friends!
