A rainbow is a powerful symbol of hope, good fortune and the beauty after a storm, as well as being an all-encompassing image of love and diversity. And when you catch a glimpse of one in the distance, have you ever wished you could bottle it up and take it home? Well, now you can.
Rainbow-themed crafts can brighten up any room and make the perfect party decorations, ideal for making with a group of friends beforehand. Don't just take our word for it though, take it from someone who loves all things bright and colourful – Helen Cooke, the UK-based crafter and jeweller behind @CraftyCooke.
"I love colour. I've always been quite a bubbly person so I dress for my personality," says Helen. "I love seeing what you can do with colour and going against the rules. Especially with crafting, where you can experiment with different colours and see how you can change the personality of an item based on how you put colours together."
To get started you will need a Canon PIXMA printer and the Canon Creative Park website or app. Here, Helen explains how she used a Canon PIXMA TS5350a Series printer, Creative Park and crafting tools to bring a rainbow-coloured windmill and hot air balloon to magical life.
