On to my first project. I created a rainbow background and put my elements on top of it. I cut various patterns at about 1/2 inch wide and about 10 inches long and created a rainbow which went from pinks to blue and back to pinks. I die cut my title out and placed it directly over the pattern to create a neat effect.
You know what I love about the Chickaniddy collections? At the bottom of the patterned paper, on the flip side of the product information, there is a pattern that you can cut out and use. I will try to indicate which papers I used came from what strips of paper below (they are in italics).
Date Night paper: Downtown (front and back pattern) (CN14OS03),Spiffy Tag (DN14OS07); Mini Sticker Banner (DN14EB03); Mini Sticker Tags (DN14EB04), Sticker Sheet (DN14EB02)
Other: White cardstock, Yellow cardstock, Silhoutte machine
DON'T FORGET: I have the cutting file for my next page under the product list. On my second page I am going to go into step by step on how I created this look. This layout was completed using lots of strips of paper and patterned paper cut into strips (about 1/2 inch wide) and cut into a circle. I started with cutting a ton of strips of paper from both collections and laying them out on the table. I did not use every single one, but this helped me when figuring out which ones to use. Here is a photo of that.
Next I got out all of the extra circles I created, figured out where they would go, and started to add my papers to the circles. For each circle I adhered one color line but with different colored strips to each circle. I cut off the ends so the end product would be circles with different color lines. The main colors I used were: Dark grey, grey, light grey, dark blue, light lime green, darker greens, mint (blue/green), dark yellow, orange, pink, and dark pink. Here is a photo.
