How I made my Rainbow Layout I

My layout for this month's Challenge uses the technique of Rainbow Colours. I chose to make mine into balloons as the theme brought to mind the film 'UP'. The photo is Andrew in his beaver uniform - my own little Russell!

This is the original layout we are scraplifiting by Steph Devlin.

and this is the sketch

I used a sheet of My Mind's Eye paper from Good Day Sunshine Collection called 'Head in the Clouds'.
Then I gathered together enough scrap patterned papers from a box under my desk, in each colour of the rainbow to make my balloons. These were mostly Basic Grey Lime Ricky & Lauderdale and Sizzix papers. The shapes were all cut on the Cricut using the Create a Critter Cartridge.
Select the snake,with shift, real dial and layer 1. Cut these in various sizes from 1.5" to 3.5".

The balloons were all inked with appropriate coloured chalk inks and added to the page, some raised on 3D foam pads, others stuck down to the page.

Then I added Baker's Twine in corresponding colours - I tied this to the balloon and stuck down to the page under where the photo would go later.

The photo was mounted onto black Bazzill and the bottom trimmed with a Martha Stewart border punch.

The title was created with two alphabets. The 'UP' is American Crafts - Remarks Letter Sticker - Runway in white. The tiny letters for 'growing' and the date are Doodlebug Designs inc. Simply Sweet Lily White rub-ons.

Challenge runs until 5th November.
