Back when we were in school, we were taught about the "Primary Colors." Red, Blue and Yellow. These are the colors that are the base for all other colors. When we think about the primary colors, we automaticly think bright child like colors. These colors are easy to work with because we know the mood and message that we are sending...Disney Scrapbook Layouts, School Day Layouts, Children's Birthday Cards. But this doesn't have to be the case. There are tints and shades to every color. When we "tint" a color, the color is lighted by having white added. When we shade a color, we have darkened it by adding black. The primary colors are easiest to work with because they are the foundation of the color wheel. (We'll talk more about that later). But the primary colors don't have to be childlike and bright.
By the way, Close To My Heart Convention is over and the dust is beginning to settle. There are so many exciting things to tell you about....like a brand new Cricut Cartridge! I will share more in a later post. For Now, Happy Crafting!
