During our school years we probably all studied colour theory in art class at some stage, but along with the millions of other things I learnt at school it seems to have gotten lost and seemed not too important.
Here is a quick refresher on colour basics that you can apply to your scrapbooking when choosing colour schemes.
There are three primary colours: Red, Yellow and Blue. These three are the primary colours because no other colours can be mixed to create them, and all other colours can be created by mixing different combinations of the three just adding white or black to lighten or darken.
The primary colours are quite often used for advertising, childrens toys and logos as they are bright, eye catching, uncomplicated and fun. This makes them perfect for layouts and projects featuring school pictures, sport or actions shots, playground pics, boys or birthday parties.
Why not try using a primary colours scheme for you next layout or scrappy project?
