I love how easy it was to create the rainbows in this spread, and the possibilities in the  ensemble. Let's take a closer look at the spread.

Create a Title

One of the ways to create rainbow colored memory keeping layouts is to use the shape of the rainbow to create interest in the page. For this spread, I am using a limited color palette from the Summer Dreams Fresh Dye Inks, and Through The Rainbow Stamp Set to create the double rainbow arches on the page.  The shape of the design is conducive for focusing a design, in this case, the title placement.

Frame Your Focal Point

The stamped arches create the ideal placement for a focal point (in this case the title of the spread). Since I have a large area to cover, I am choosing  the new Build-A-Garden: Japanese Anemone and You Matter Die Set to create the main interest of the page.

In order to create a cohesive rainbow colored memory keeping layout, I am using the same colors from the rainbow arches to color the flowers. Then, I added a pop of metallic shine (Brushed Rose Metallic Cardstock), and black accents to the finished page look.

Frame Your Photo

To continue building my rainbow colored memory keeping spread, I am choosing to add an stencil impression of the rainbow (using the   same color palette and Through The Rainbow stencil) to a 4x6in card. By only adding a piece of the rainbow to the card, it causes it to frame anything we set next to it.

Create Your Journaling Cards

Finally, I finishing my rainbow colored memory keeping layout by repeating the partial impression of the arches using the stencil and fresh inks. I am adding a few sentiments from the stamp set and also A Fresh Start stamp set to complete the spread.

You can watch how this spread comes together, and all this ideas at work in the following video. Watch it here, or in HD in  Altenew's YouTube Channel:

Indeed, there are so many possibilities! Jaycee boldly played with colors and patterns to make this card a truly memorable and gorgeous one.

Speaking of memorable, don't you agree that a lesson from the one and only Amy Tangerine is a core memory?
