According to Tigercolor.com a split-complementary color scheme is a variation of a complimentary color scheme. In addition to using a base color, it also uses the two colors adjacent to it is a compliment. It has a lot of tension much like a complimentary color scheme, but is much easier to achieve.
In the layout I am working with today I wanted to go with a blue/ orange color scheme of sorts. This is a color combination I always love for masculine pages, or outdoor photographs. I went with blue as my dominant color with yellow and orange as the split-compliments and I really like how it turned out. I also used a brown woodgrain and white as a neutral to balance out all of that color, as well as silver for accents.
