Colors of Summer (Acrylic Paint - Practical Scrappers DT)

Funny how this layout started.  I was painting blue letters for another layout...and had squeezed out too much blue onto my pallette.  So I took my brush and just made the big blue line along the edge of the paper to "not waste" the paint.    I do this quite often and then the piece of "painted" cardstock just goes into my scrap bin for "later" inspiration. 
So a few days later, I have the DT assignment in the back of my mind and I come across this Sassafrass Rainbow patterned paper.  It hit me...I dug out that cardstock with the paint and added the 3 other colors to "semi" match the rainbow.  Dug out different color Thickers...didn't have the right color of blue I painted some to match. 
Journaling is about how Joseph's smile is like all colors of the rainbow...Precious.
