Happy Rainbow

While writing my last post showing some boy layouts using the May 2017 Clique Kit which featured the Pinkfresh Studios Dream On collection I realized I never shared this fun layout using the same collection. In this one I free-hand cut the different sized arcs of the rainbow and then used watercolor paints to color in the icons outlined in this paper. I wan’t sure if it would “come together” with an equally bright and colorful photo but I found that the bright, busyness of both the rainbow and the photo complemented one another. We sometimes think that the only way to buffer a loud, busy, colorful photo is to tone it down by printing black and white or somehow to tone down the intensity of the layout design. I think the third option is to provide some balance, which is what I tried to do here. I hope you like it!
