Rainbow Pie Layout

Hey everyone! It’s Paige Evans here with a new layout using my Pick-Me-Up collection!

Taste the rainbow with this new rainbow pie layout from Paige Evans using the Pick-Me-Up collection!

I started by die cutting a circle pie chart with stitching holes and then did a chain link stitch around the entire design using all six strands of white embroidery floss – I love the texture and interest this type of stitching adds!

Then I went through the Pick-Me-Up collection and found eight solid patterned papers with which to back the “pieces of pie.” I backed the remaining two spaces with photos of my daughter. I placed the patterned papers in rainbow order – all of the colors make me HAPPY – just like the title of the layout!

To embellish I did the tone-on-tone technique. I went through lots of the Pick-Me-Up embellishments (ephemera die cuts, stickers, chipboard stickers, and puffy stickers) and placed the pink ones on the pink slice, the yellow ones on the yellow slice, aqua on aqua, etc. This creates more texture and enhances the rainbow look!

I traced the circle onto a smooth white cardstock background, machine stitched around it several times, and then adhered the circle on top. The machine stitching adds… you guessed it – texture!

To finish I wrote my journaling in a bit of empty space inside the lighter yellow slice using a black pen.

You can never go wrong with a rainbow color scheme and the tone-on-tone technique! I hope you give it a try! Thanks so much for stopping by the Pink Paislee blog today!
