Colour Inspiration No. 01

Hello friends, it's Kayleigh here to bring you a new type of blog posting. I am pretty stinkin' excited about this & hope you are too! Today I bring you a colour palate to spark your creativity. I've seen this idea a few other places & thought i would share a scheme with you. Try playing with the colours in various quantities on your page for different looks. A red background vs a neutral background will change the page completely. Also try playing with patterns to add more interest to your page.



Here is my page that i created using this scheme:


I chose blue as my main colour for the background paper. I used pops of red for a splash of impact & to keep the eye moving around the page. Then used the neutrals to ground the page. Try playing with the colours in various saturation's for more visual interest.

Here are few products that might help your mojo to get going, i found lots of great products available at Designer Digitals!














Have fun with this idea & let your mojo flow today. Please link us to your page here if you create a page using this colour scheme. Do you have a favourite colour scheme that you fall back to regularly? Or one that you are drawn too? - kayleigh

Loved putting the LO together... not only did I use your colour scheme, I also used your 'Story of Today' as inspiration too!
