As promised, I want to get back to my thoughts on using color to enhance your projects. Previously we talked about using Reds, Blues and Yellows. These are the Primary Colors...the three basic colors from which all other colors are derived. Because of this, a project done using these colors will portray a sense of simplicity and purity. Think about a Disney Project. You automatically gravitate to Reds, Blues and Yellows. Bright and cheery, these colors convey "fun." Now, think of a Herritage project...bright reds, blues and yellows just do not come to mind. Softer combinations are what you traditionally think. In a Herritage Layout, you want to create a sense of respect and reverance. This is achieved by mixing the Primary Colors.
When you mix the Primary Colors, you create what is known as the Secondary Colors. Think of colors as the numbers on a clock.
Using colors wisely in your projects is an easy way to enhance the theme and mood of your projects. Feel free to experiement with color to create your own special mood. For Now, Happy Crafting!
