Colors and Patterns

Color...don’t be afraid of it! There is nothing that inspires me more than color. Walking through the aisles of a scrapbooking store is the most delightful experience for me. Some women like shoes, but I prefer paper!

Most of what you need to know about color is what you learned in elementary school with your first paint box. Mixing primary colors creates secondary colors, and mixing those makes even more. There are a few rules to follow, but the number-one rule is to follow your instincts. When a color combination makes me smile, I go with it.

If you do feel a bit unsure of yourself, you can follow these three basic rules:
1. Stay with one color family. A monochromatic scheme will always work beautifully, and it’s easy to follow. Use all pinks or different shades of green.

2. Use the color’s next-door neighbors. Colors that sit next to each other on the color wheel can set a beautiful tone for your artwork. For instance, red-violet, red and red-orange can make for a very fiery, exotic piece.

3. Explore opposites. Complementary color schemes are exciting to work with. Can you imagine a plum dress with lemon-yellow accents?

Color choices can be a bit overwhelming sometimes. Scrapbook paper manufacturers make it so easy to work with color. Everything is made to coordinate; all you have to do is choose! I prefer to mix and match my paper choices so the design is truly mine. Whether you use coordinating papers or your own mix, your heart will sing at the right choice!

There are also some rules to follow regarding patterns. When I choose patterns for my projects, I generally follow the rules of interior design. When deciding on patterns for a room, typically we will choose a large-scale print or fl oral, a small-scale print or fl oral, and a stripe, plaid or polka dot to match the selected solid color. Think of a set of bedding. A floral comforter may have a striped pattern on the reverse side with small polka-dot or plaid piping. Designing your art will work exactly the same way. This is also how the scrapbook paper companies design their lines. You will have lots of patterns to choose from; it’s just a matter of choosing the right proportions for your unique mix.

A Word From the Author:

"I invite you into this world of mine. It’s a place where you can leave the dishes alone and your worries behind. We will draw fabulous clothes. We will sketch ball gowns that you would probably never wear and ruffles that are way too girly but oh-so-beautiful to look at. We will draw whimsical faces and paint hair any color we want, as long as it’s not gray! We will add glitter, shimmer and bling—yes, lots of bling. Grab your mixed-media tools and a cup of tea, and let’s play!" — Julie Nutting
