Rainbow Page by Krystal Idunate

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Hello friends! Krystal Idunate here today sharing a new spread I created using Paige’s Sunrise Sunset cut file along with her Wonders collection. I really loved the look of this background and thought it could be a super cool base to tell an affirmation based story for my son. I decided to fussy cut out a photo of my son and place it at the bottom of this 6x8 spread.

With this awesome background, I knew right away that I wanted to cut it out with textured white cardstock and then to back it in a rainbow of colors. Prior to making my cut, I did slightly adjust the sizing so I could fit in into my son’s 6x8 story album.

With the Sunrise Sunset cut file cut out, I was ready to get all that color filled in. I decided that I wanted to fill in the background in a general rainbow order. Looking through the Wonders paper collection, I found most of the patterns in the 6x8 Paper Pad. However, I also used a large portion of Paper 2. I started with the pinks (in lieu of reds) on the left side of the file, moving through the rest of the hues of the rainbow as I progressed to the right side. Next, I needed to add my title. I was so happy that the Thickers had the word “YOU” all in the same color, as well as the word “ARE”. It was like it was meant to be! I chose a long phrase sticker from the 6x12 Cardstock Stickers, added that at the base of the spread, and then placed the foam Thickers on top of that. I really love how big and bold the title is. It totally pops off the page.

To finish off this project, I added three of the die cut butterflies from the Floral Die Cuts. I decided to color match them, so I added the pink butterfly next to the pink strips of color, the yellow by the yellow, and the blue by the blue. Finally, I grabbed a journaling pen and went to town writing descriptive words about my son in the rays. I am completely obsessed with this spread. I love the bright, vibrant nature of the layout in general, but I also love the message for my son. And let’s be honest… that photo is just the best! If you would like to see a process video for this layout, you can find the full process HERE.

I hope this spread helps inspire you to create a spread expressing words of affirmation for you or your loved ones. It’s such a great journaling practice! Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day!
