We celebrate the last post in our colour series with nature’s ultimate and arguably most beautiful explosion of colour – the rainbow.
Leeann got a little excited about this colour theory assignment – rainbow colours. She wanted to obviously create a visible rainbow appearance, but in more of a subtle manner. Leeann used negatives as a mask from punched circles and randomly placed them on some cardstock. Then she dabbed paint inside, starting with red then orange, yellow, green, blue and them purple. Once they were semi-touch dry, Leeann whitewashed the entire background with white gesso. Then she used this cool tool that gives you a wood grain pattern. She highlighted each colour and used a mixture of embellishments including Cosmo Cricket’s Salt Air chipboard and borders to pop each colour.
Co-incidentaly, Iris turned to a woodgrain texture as well, but she used a Crafter’s Workshop woodgrain mask, seven of her distress inks, seven of her blending tools, and made a rainbow of colours on her white cardstock. To finish up the page, she took bits of embellishments from different lines and manufacturers such as Sassafras Lass, BasicGrey, Crate, Cosmo Cricket, and Glitz to come up with a gorgeous page that shouts colour colour colour!
Louise has been so loving the Colour Theory series of briefs, they are pushing her outside her creative square when it comes to colours and colour coordination; especially the rainbow colours. Whilst Louise admits she would have struggled a little if she had chosen to use patterned papers, she however didn't struggle when it came to coordinated the colours of the rainbow using some of her favourite products, Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mists, and Hambly Studios. Keeping the design simple Louise has manages to coordinate a little of each colour in her layout.
