Scrapology October Layout Challenge - R is for Rainbow

 This month on Scrapology the challenge is to incorporate rainbow colours in a layout and the design team has taken it's inspiration from a stunning layout by Steph Devlin.

Whilst looking for a photo to use on my layout I struggled to find something suitable. I wanted a really bright photo but whilst I found lots of fairly bright photos but couldn't find any in primary colours. Until, I found a photo of Lara taken on the day her Rainbow group celebrated the Centenary of Girl Guiding a few years ago.


My layout was very simple. I used lots of cardstock. I started with a white cardstock base, matted my photo on black cardstock and then added butterflies and stars punched from coloured carstock. I finished the layout with a title made from Echo Park letter sticker in rainbow colours.

Here's Steph's original layout....


..... and the sketch.


Jill at Cardinal Colours has come up with a super prize this month and we hope you will join the fun and enter the challenge by creating a layout using the sketch and Rainbow Colours. Pop over to Scrapology for all the details and to see the team's layouts.

Brilliant! I love all those butterflies. It seems guiding and scouting really lent themselves to this challenge.
