3 Ways to Improve Your Use of Color in Scrapbooking

As we near the end of our color month focus, we thought we'd give you one last post with inspiration for pulling color in your projects!

1. Check out this helpful color wheel guide by Erica Hernandez from the archives of our Garden section.

2. Try working with a color family like neutrals, brights, pastels, and primaries.  Here's what the Garden Girls did with color families for this month's theme:

3.  Be a student of color and take a workshop.  Through the Kaleidescope by Amy Heller is completely focused on this subject.  Amy is an expert on the topic and has a background in art direction.

Art Class by Wilna Furstenberg.  It was released earlier this year and can still be found in our Hot Products section with 30 perfect ratings.  Wilna encourages you to experiment and play; there's an artist in you and she is your biggest cheerleader.  Color is such an important tool for an artist, and Wilna does not disappoint.

Start Here by Lisa Truesdell.  In this mini $12 workshop, you'll get an entire chapter dedicated to being inspired by color.  A perfect choice if you're budget is tight, but you're itching to learn and in need of some motivation.

We hope you feel more equipped to pull together just the right colors to record your memories!
