Playing with Color

November 02, 2016

Color really is a big deal to me on my scrapbook pages. I use it as a way to tie my photo to the other elements on my page and create harmony, to set the mood and convey feelings and quite simply to have fun and add a little bit of myself to each page.

This month at The Get It Scrapped Membership we've got a new learning track series available called Playful Scrapbooker and the first class in this series is centered around one of my favorite topics, Color Play.

Kindered Spirits by Amy Kingsford | Supplies: Lilypad Designers: MPM Kindred; Mommyish Designs: Warm and Cozy Paper and Elements; Sahlin Studios: Kindred Add-on Papers and Elements 

My page "Kindred Spirits" is an example of how I generally approach color on the page:

  • I'm not afraid to use rich, saturated colors. 
  • I often tackle extended color palettes of 5 or more colors.
  • I love white backgrounds, not only because they don;t require any ink when printing my pages at home, but also because of the way the colors pop against it.
  • And I use color as the glue that holds my page design together - notice all of the visual triangles in this page that I've created with color.  They keep your eye circling my photos as you drink in all of the finer details.

We'd love for you to join us over at The Get It Scrapped Membership as we take an in-depth look at using color playfully and purposefully on your scrapbook pages!

Have a great day!
