Product Post!

I figured it was about time that I started showcasing The Resin Rainbow's product line in my blog making it even easier for you to see and purchase rather than going to a seperate website to do so.

yes I know I could create a seperate blog that is just for this purpose but by having it all in one, you can see how I have also used the products making it more fun and interesting for you and less work for me by having to keep 2 blogs running!

There will be a tab at the top of the blog that says STORE.. and in here you will be able to see almost everything that can be purchased available.

More than happy to take requests and custom orders. I am working on a way to add variations to each product as your purchasing to add colour so you dont need to me to send you a message asking what colour/s you would like!

For now, you can also view & purchase The Resin Rainbow's products on Etsy.

White ..with 1 challenge .. Creative Team Entry .. Teal Sequins

It's halfway through the year already! .. so much to do, so little time. 
This layout almost made itself, I wanted to do a layout based on my daughter and her best friend. They are inseparable and spend not only each day together at school but cheating on messenger every day after school. They are 2 peas in a pod and we are lucky that they have found each other. This is friendship that will exist for their lifetimes, no matter what the future brings.

Along with the colour of Teal  Sequins for this month, we also had to incorporate a sketch!
I didnt follow the sketch exactly but thats the whole idea, to use it as a guide! You can see the similarities between the sketch and my layout - cant you?

Urrrgh! the colours on this layout look amazing when your seeing the original, but taking a picture of it was an absolute nightmare! .. after 12 attempts and some photoshop fixing - i gave up!  The below cropped images of the layout are very true to colour but it just wasnt working!

Items Used:
Resin Flowers from The Resin Rainbow.. 
Hashtag or plant leaves from The Resin Rainbow.. 
Heart Shape from The Resin Rainbow.. 
various cards etc from my stash. 
Wood pieces from Corbett Creations

Have a great June!

White With 1.. May 2017 .. Deep Black

Welcome to May!
Can someone flew me where the last 4 months went to?, they have flown past!

I got a  bit clever with my title for this one. I took the chipboard word and coloured it with acrylic paint with a lettter per colour, added some crackle medium and then black paint over the top! .. while I wanted it to pop with full bright colour, that wouldn't have worked with the guidelines for the challenge or the layout! .. had forgotten all about that technique!

Products Used
Black booktape used as a tag strip
Resin Scroll Border from The Resin Rainbow (was cut up and glued ontop of strip)
White circle chipboard frame
Hexagon stencil with gesso and back paint on the background
Rainbow striped resin dots from The Resin Rainbow ..

Thanks for looking!

SUYS Feb Design Team Entry

Welcome to February! .. had lots of fun playing with the challenge at Show Us your Stuff for this month!


I started with a swipe of silver paint using a brayer, then I added some 'sunshine' colourblast texture paste over the top using a very vintage HS dots 'mask'. Did some searching for a pattern paper with a cute border edge that I added on. 
Somewhere in the middle of the night, I had the idea to add some silver/grey crepe paper as a sewn ruffle border to the side. 
After that the colours just came just happened. I went for a pastel pallete with baby pink, lemon, mint, cream and a pop of colour using a white/black spotty card. All cards came from my stash of ephemera. 

I received a new mold for The Resin Rainbow .. just as I was starting this layout and knew I was going to incorporate it somehow. So I cut up a part of the bespoke flower and pushed them into spot. 

Items Used:
paper flowers all by D-Lish Scraps. 

That's about it for now .. be sure to check out what the rest of the DT have done with this seriously fun challenge this month - and get yours in, you still have 2 days!

Rainbow Splendour are the sponsor this month so you dont want to miss out on your chance to win some of her amazing handmade products!

Happy Scrapping

SUYS January 2017 DT Entry ..

Welcome to January! 

With summer comes water, beaches and plenty of sunshine!  .. it was a no brainer for this layout to fall into place and a pic of my DD building a HUGE sandcastle on a beach on the Gold Coast, Qld kinda made it all work. 

Here is the idea that the design team had to create with!

I grabbed a few pattern papers in colours & patterns that worked well with my mage and tore them up into smaller bits. I layered them over and under each other to make a paper collage and then added a coat of clear gel medium afterwards to keep them in place.

Items used:
yellow glitter stars & 2 butterflies by Rainbow Splendour
 Happy Days chipboard word by Corbett Creations 
Felt Bow by Dlish scraps.

you can see the rest of the amazing design teams January entries here! ..and dont forget to submit your own to win a prize pack from Burdies Embellishments!

Have a fab month!

Happy Scrapping
