Layout Share: Let's Jumprope

Happy Monday! Today I have a layout to share with you today based on using one of my favorite ways to start a layout: Color! I am obsessed with color schemes and finding inspiration for layouts in colors around me. Today I am using a triadic color scheme. I have been learning a bunch of fun new things over at Studio Calico in their Color Theory class, and I thought I would share something I learned with you.

According to tiger, a triadic color scheme uses colors that are evenly spaced around the color wheel. These color schemes tend to be quite vibrant, even if you use pale or unsaturated versions of your hues. *This link will give you all kinds of great information about many different color schemes, including; primary, secondary, tertiary, triadic, complementary, analogous, square, rectangle, and split-complementary.

Example of a Triadic Color Scheme

Two things I noticed when researching this type of color scheme. 
  1. I use the red, blue, yellow color scheme frequently, especially with boy pages.
  2. I don't use many other combos of triadic, so I pushed myself to try one that is really out of my "wheelhouse" so to speak. Here is what I came up with.

This was a very fun layout to make. I enjoy trying new things, and this color scheme (purple, aqua, and orange/yellow) are definitely not a typical color scheme for me, but I really like the result.

Let's talk stepping outside of our comfort zone today. What kinds of crafty projects have you worked on lately that were out of the norm for you? Anyone else branching out of their wheelhouse lately? Is there anything new that you would love to try? Let' talk crafting, any kind of crafting will do, I would love to hear all about it.

I will be back tomorrow with some more Project Life to share. I hope to see you back then.

Until then,

Happy Scrappin'
