Spring 2018 - a future reality!!!! Let's brighten things up while we're waiting for IT to end!!!
Really like these colors, especially for patriotic card making!!! What do these colors do for you?
I need reminders about the color wheel because I'm a visual person and I have to see the colors and how they work from primary to secondary to tertiary to analogous, etc. So if I'm having trouble remembering the theory of color, perhaps I'm not alone!
Click on the above color wheel for a discussion of the components of the color wheel.
The below discussion goes into greater detail about what happens when colors are mixed. This is especially useful if you are water coloring or painting with acrylics and you want to mix color. If you watch artists painting tutorials, they are so skilled at putting colors together. They fascinate me!
Here's one more visual:
Since posting this, I found yet another good glossary HERE that does a great job of explaining what each combination of color means!
Hope you find this post useful!
I am woefully behind with creating cards using the weekly color inspirations! This week's colors scream winter to me...forget about the photo on the left 'cuz it doesn't help conger up creative thoughts at all. Just look at those deep rich colors on the right along with the greys and blues and you'll visualize a nice wintery card! See, I already have one in mind!
If you are inspired to respond to a challenge, I've compiled a list below and will add to it as I find additional sites. I love challenge sites that aren't connected to any particular product line!
If you're bored this winter, have no creative mojo, need inspiration, or have inspiration with no one to share it with, try a challenge! It's kinda like card swapping in cyberspace. Enjoy the journey!!!
