I am not a professional when it comes to color combinations & the color wheel, but when I see combos that move me I either pin it to my Pinterest board or, if I have a similar marker colors, I re-create the combinations for later use. I have been working on paying more attention to colors, not just as they are, but more about how they make me feel and again, I am not a color professional so I don't know what the meanings of the colors are. (Maybe I should have will look up the meanings for next weeks post.)
In addition to paying attention to color, I am also re-inventing my love for scrapbooking, my once upon a time hobby that became the beginning of my creative industry career. The main color combination of the pages I worked on just about the entire weekend were black, white, kraft, dark red with a side of gray.
Along with the color combinations, I am learning to pay better attention to patterns and all of the patterns of the Me & My Big Idea Pocket Pages cards are doing just the trick for me. With this palette of colors, you can add any color with it to compliment the photos you are working with and it automatically works, which is good for me, the born again scrapbooker that needs a little reminder and encouragement here and there.
Look how it all changes with just a little dash of color:
Today, pay a little attention to color combinations and if they move you, make note of them for future use.
