Rainbows

Today I’m inspired by…rainbows. Unfortunately, that is because we have 3-4 days of rain in the forecast. We can’t seem to get our usual summer temperatures here in MN. Here are some inspiring rainbow ideas from around the web.

Gypsy Chandelier from Urban Outfitters Inspiration point: I love the bling and beads on this chandelier. The colors are bold and vibrant.

Rainbow Toy Blocks by Guidecraft Inspiration point: I love how these blocks are translucent. I am picturing some framed vellum squares or colorful transparencies.

Balsa Rainbow Bird Toy at Feather Fantasy Inspiration point: I love the pattern of the beads and blocks. I see a border in my future…

Spectrum Mobile by Brigitta and Benedikt Martig-Imhof at momastore.com Inspiration point: This mobile kind of reminds me of the bird toy. I like the gradient colors and the simplicity. I might create a border or frame using this type of idea…and punch a few holes in the blocks to vary the texture.

Elmer the Elephant by David McKee Inspiration point: I love the checkerboard pattern! I have a lot of scraps that could be put to good use with a square punch.

Rainbow Bookshelf shown on freshome Inspriation point: I love how these books are sorted. I am thinking it would look super cool to use small strips for a  border/background/frame on a page. I might have to organize my books in my scrap room by color…hmm…
