In Living Color


This week's challenge at Frosted Designs our challenge is to "show the rainbow"...
I worked  extra hard on this project....also thinking that I wanted to try something new and different and get "out of my box"  ...so I made all my own embellishments....AND I didn't use ANY patterened paper.  So this layout is also for my DT at Scrap Our Stash where the May challenge is to "get out of your box". 
AND-- Scrapfit Workout #20 is to use ONLY Cardstock & embellies..no Patterned Paper, so this fits that challenge too1!
I put the ribbons on a seperate piece of cardstock and glued them down so that's one "big piece" that I could move around.  To make the sun, I cut a circle out of yellow fabric, frayed the edges and ripped a few pieces for the rays.  I sewed the circle on (with the rays) and left a little hole under where the ribbon rainbow is...I stuffed some batting in the hole and made my sun "puffy".  I also made my flowers out of ribbon and fabric and made ric-rac stems & leaves.  Obviously, I didn't make the buttons...  But this layout was lots of fun and lots of work...(from conception on paper to completion took me about a week.....  I did other projects in between, but I took this one nice and slowly and let it build).  Joseph LOVES it...it's bright and fun and he loves the sun & ribbon rainbow (he was around when I was struggling with different ways to make it work..so maybe he has an "appreciation" for it?)  -- Thanks for Looking!   Here's a closeup...
