Just popping in to share a layout I did for Aussie Scrap Source this week. It's for one of the articles we're doing at the moment on Colour Theory. In this case, Tetradic Colour Schemes. I've used red, orange, blue and green.
Journaling: He looked such a big boy in his new school uniform. And he was so excited to be going to school. I did so well, doing the proud mama thing with no tears... until he put his bag on his back. And that huge great bag made him look so little and quite did me in!
I wanted to scrap these photos of Jamie's first day, from my point of view. Til now I've only done a couple of pages that are written for him. This one's for my album :). To remind myself how proud I was of him on his first day.
Tetradic colour schemes can be a little tricky. It's best to keep a couple of the colours dominant and use the others as accents. And, like I've done here, a load of white (or neutral) space helps to rest the eye amongst the riot of colours.
Have a look over at Aussie Scrap Source to have a look at the other layouts that the Design Team has created for the Colour Theory series. It's a really great series.
