Wonderful World of Color: A Color Wheel Mini Book

Welcome to our (Inter)National Scrapbook Day colorful extravaganza at Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  It's Lynnette and I'm here this round to provide you with a bit of color inspiration to get you in the mood.  Speaking of mood, isn't it amazing how color can evoke such strong feelings?  The fabulous Jennifer Grace showcased a rainbow of layouts focusing on Color Mood in the previous post, so here's a mini book to build on that concept.

 Color psychology

Grab some scraps of paper in the ROYGBIV color families and let's make a mini!  (I actually omitted the indigo for ease of making a simplified pie chart.)  Six pie wedges will do the trick.  I found some round cardboard coasters in the dollar section of Target that made the perfect base for my book.
Plus, pie charts are so on-trend right now!

Next, find some photos that match the color characteristics.  To drive home the feel, I tried to find photos that mostly featured the color.


A little touch of washi in the corresponding color...


with some tiny alphas to spell out the descriptive word...


and a sticker to add some love.


What a sweet little way to showcase the many sides of my dear daughter (plus a few photo bombs by my son!  LOL!)


Some rainbow ribbon or ribbon scraps in ROYGBIV always dress up the binder ring nicely.

Keep these colors/character traits in mind the next time you are capturing the essence of someone special on your scrapbook layout or in your very own Color Wheel Mini Book.  

Be sure to keep checking back to our blog the rest of today and tomorrow for more inspiration, challenges and prizes!

Happy Scrapping!
