3 Choosing Your Scrapbooking Colors

Colors and color coordination and contrast will highlight and accent your scrapbooking. A well thought out color scheme can help define the theme of a page, attract attention to specific items, or detract away from mistakes.

Colors and poorly chosen color schemes, on the other hand, can cause your scrapbook page to look gaudy or mismatched.

Background colors can either be matched, coordinated, or contrasted with the colors in your photographs, mementos, or embellishments. Matching colors add to the continuity of the color scheme. Colors add depth to scrapbook pages. Contrasted colors focus the eye. In this way, color can be used to create the effect you desire.

A great way to see how colors look together is to collect and compare color wheels from your local paint or hardware store. Paint wheels with lots of colors are usually available free for the taking in nearly any paint department.
