The Thinkery : Rainbow page

Life is so wonderfully full these days. We spend most days at home since the baby was born. The kids have learned to play by themselves in the backyard more and they look forward to little walks around the neighborhood. This weekend though we decided to try a quick trip to the museum. I figured with Ryan with me it would be a lot easier to handle and the kids would get a much-missed outing in.

I saw a poster hanging up outside and the colorful repeated images totally reminded me of a layout I had done years ago. 

Here is the image:

 Here is (part of) my old layout:

I decided to recreate the look with stamps again.  I love working in rainbow colors, so I went that way instead of using just primary colors.  Luckily I had some awesome rainbow pictures from that day at the museum to pair the idea with.  I borrowed the circle photo idea from the poster as well.

The top photo is actually a panoramic shot I took with my phone. I used a lot of bits and pieces that were laying around my table, mostly my January and February kits.  My collection of Studio Calico stamps was put to good use here, including the new little wanderlust roller stamp - it is so cute!  Seriously though, it feels good to use my stamps instead of just collecting them and hoarding them.  To get the rainbow, I mostly used Ranger Archival inks, with the exception of purple and orange which are chalk ink.  I just got the large ampersand clip from Webster's pages and had to use that on the page as well. 

I am linking this page up with Paper Issues for their Color by the Numbers challenge
