Color Inspiration for Scrapbook Pages

Lesson 4: Balance with Photos

Design by Tracy Kyle


Tracy drew from the colors in the subject's shirt for her scheme, accenting the blue background with matching plaids in brown and a splash of orange for contrast. Each is in the same proportion as the photo: the most blue, a bit of brown, and the smallest touch of orange.
