A rainbow appears to us as a circle of colours in an arc centred on a line to the sun. In a primary rainbow the arc shows red on the outer part and violet on the inner side. We are taught this description of a rainbow from when we are little as children love drawing rainbows in their pictures to show a happy sunny day.
A rhyme I remember to help with the colour orders of a rainbow is Richard of York gave battle in vain and so the colours go red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. However a rainbow can be depicted in any random order of colours with the recognisable arc shape. Here I will show you how you can use your beautiful rainbow scrapbook paper, go to digitalpapershop.com to find your chosen design.
