Good Monday everyone ! Welcome to a brand new week !
My name is Emeline and i am your blog host for this week.
The challenge this week : show us your favorite color combination.
Color is somehow scientific and it plays a huge role in the overall look of our scrapbook pages. I LOVE colors and i love to mix them. The ingenious color wheel is an invaluable tool for you to have fun with colors. Try using the color wheel to design well-coordinated eye-pleasing pages that really shine !
here are some basic (among many others) color schemes in using the color wheel:
let us pick the color green. Since every color comes in many saturations and hue, choose two or three additional values of the green color you want to use. The result will be calming and cohesive. Your page should turn out to be pleasing to the eye and stylish.
Choose two or three adjoining (side by side) colors.These combinations tend to be either warm (from the red side of the color wheel) or cool (from the blue side of the color wheel)
Choosing colors across the wheel from each other creates contrast and is a good way to make the items on your page stand out.
Let us see some examples :
Lisa Warren used a gorgeous combination to create a boyish layout.
Cherie Nymeyer used a soothing color palette on her page.
and here's another by Mimi
with a beautiful mix of colors :
Liz Qualman created an adorable card using the fabulous color combination. Look how she utilised Pebbles Inc Linnie Bell sticker ! How cute !
and Gaelle created a lovely page using earthly colors. Love the hand drawings ! :)
and lastly, i used complimentary yellow and pink (together with neutral colors grey and white).
