Design Your Life Week #10

January 3rd, 2009

I am SO catching up here!

In week #10 Cathy Z. took a look at the huge topic of color. We have  been discussing color all along with various color combinations to try. This week, she discussed the basics of color theory but then shared her approach to color. She looks for 4 colors in her photographs that may work. She may narrow them down to 2 or 3 colors but then she looks for papers and embellishments in those colors. Next, she will work with the proportions.

We did a couple exercises of picking 4 colors from the photograph and then narrowing it down to 2 or 3 colors. I learned that I am really more comfortable with a two color plus neutral combination. I am addicted to white especially for the journaling and/or background colors. I did two layouts this way, but I won’t post the pictures because they are group shots.

  1. It’s a beautiful color combination Denise! I agree that it’s non-traditional, which is what makes it such a great layout! Isn’t it rewarding to try something new like this??! Such a nice clean design. I’m such a fan of your work…

  2. Gorgeous color combination and pages, Denise!!!!!
