Rainbow Splendour Fun

Good Morning!

I am popping today to share a page that I created playing with my pretty new Rainbow Splendour goodies! There was recently a new release and there are still a few goodies over on the blog if you haven't checked it out yet!

One of the things that I was pretty pleased with (even if I do say so myself!) was some cut files that I designed to go with each of the kits. Here is a sneak photo of the cut files for the girly kit:

I decided to take the open flower shape and create a background with it and use this as the basis for my page. And this is what I finished with...

I have been admiring for ages the fabulous pages others had been making by backing cut outs with patterned paper and I really wanted to give it a go, and this is how it turned out. I learned too that there are easy and hard ways for tracing shapes to cut out to back each flower! I used quite a few bits and pieces from the kit to help finish off my page too. Can you spot them?

I love the new wood veneer flowers, I foiled mine with gold to give them some shine. To do this I used my decco foil glue pen and some Heidi Swapp gold foil. Just cover the wood veneer with the glue and burnish the foil once it has dried (no need for heating with a laminator or minc!!!). Sometimes the glue gets sucked into the wood, so you may need to do this a few times, and even then it may not be perfect, but is still finishes up looking pretty cool.

The larger wood veneer with gold foil, you can see that not all of it is covered, but it still looks fine!

And here I have my little embellishment cluster with some other favourites. A Charms Creations heart, a pretty vellum bow, some glitter leaves and a D-lish Scraps journal spot. the little heart on top is from one of the cloud wood veneers (also from Rainbow Splendour) and it is foiled too.

So a relatively simple layout, but with lots of details. Loving how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by,

Really like the cutout flowers wth backing did you cut them on a cricut or silhouette? Or buy them like that? Love the page!! 😊
