If not for the Rain, there'd never be a Rainbow

There was so much I wanted to do with this layout and luckily I got to do all of it!! This sketch and the prompts I had just really had my juices flowing! I used a sketch by Design Dollies as well as incorporated their Elements Challenge for a non-traditional item which is the blue clear plastic behind the photo, it is actually package that some stickers came in covered in Adirondack ink. I used Candy Shoppe Designs It's Raining It's Pouring Challenge as the theme for my layout and had a blast making my "rain". Creative Prompts Challenge #12 to "Change it Up" by altering an element on your page and so I altered my "sun" which was a white flower. I hope you like my take on these Challenges!!!
"If not for the Rain, there'd never be a Rainbow"
I Misted the top half of the page to give a bluish tent, then I put a row of dots of my adirondack ink on my non-stick craft sheet then used my blender to pick up the pattern of "raindrops" then I used my glossy accent to make dots randomly for an added raindrop effect.
 
I altered my flower with mists and perfect pearls to look like a sun.
I used a plastic bag that some stikers came in as a non-traditional element. I colored it with my Adirondack ink in the same color as the rain.
 
I thought only fitting to add a grassy scene at the bottom to show the other side of the rainbow :)
 

I hope you enjoyed it!
