Painting a Background

I finished a layout of Paige playing with her Christmas toys from last year. I've been inspired by rainbows lately, and I decided to create a bright rainbow background for this page. The rainbow stacker toy made the decision for me...instant rainbow background! I love how the bold colors really pop off the black paper. I just dripped some craft paint on the paper and smudged it with my finger. So easy!

I punched 2-inch circles and painted them to match, added some stitching and some punched butterflies, and that's it! Quick & simple.

Thanks for looking!
