With the B sides of Echo Park's Paradise Beach collection papers splayed out on my desk, I recognized a virtual rainbow of richness. The deep colors of the collection, and the fact that I had captured a beautiful rainbow over the beach this summer, inspired me to recreate this color spectrum on my scrapbook page! After arranging the colorful strips of patterned paper, I filled in the left side with corresponding tidbits of color-bingo cards, stickers, die-cuts, fussy-cuts, ticket stubs, labels, chipboard, and more.
Placing this box of color slightly to the top of the page gave me extra room along the bottom for a title. But oh...what to do now? I tried EVERYTHING in my stash. I even used a rainbow assortment of distress inks on white foam Thickers. But they looked too washed out for my brightly colored page. I was down to my last idea and it was this: Why not use the same premise for my title letters? It would certainly match if I used the SAME papers to back a negative cut word...so that's what I did. Here's a closeup:
And here's the finished page:
It was fun choosing and arranging my colorful accents:
I just LOVE colorful scrapbook pages, and this one is a fave!
