When we choose our embellishments & accents for our pages
or projects we can make better choices by considering the impact
of their color on our overall page design.
Not only do the red polka dots tie in with her dress but they
set a playful tone along with the polka dot & happy sky
washi tapes. The sky washi was actually a bit of camouflage
for a mustache image that was showing through!
The accent colors were chosen to give a masculine vibe
to this otherwise neutral layout. Although there is a girl
in the photo, the story is told from a boy's perspective.
Color can support a theme, as in a Christmas page.
Sometimes you just need a tiny hit of color
to add some extra visual interest.
Icy, no? It only took that smattering of blue.
Even when your page is already colorful you
can add your visual triangle with an accent color...
...or highlight your photo.
