This page started life as a spread faffing around with colour. I was trying to put a little of every colour of the wheel onto the background, and then see what happened.
It soon got a bit overwhelming the more colours I had on there. I realised swatches would really help me to figure out where to go next, and perhaps I should choose one of the triads. So I started recreating the paints, chose my triad, and used the new batch of paint hide a lot of what was already on the page from the cool side of my colour wheel. Hence why I ended up with Triad PLUS, as the touches of Plum and Blue were still visible. But I wasn't too worried, by the time I finished, I knew those would not be as dominant.
I realised that what it was lacking was the 3rd colour; I had nothing from the warm side of the triad at all, so I hit the tangerine with PS308 (the JoFY rainbow stencil), adding a bit of depth with colour 3, the Orange made from Haystack and Coral.
Next step was adding colour. Now I must admit, normally I would just start adding colour without thinking much, but I had to be careful to keep this triad balanced, so I thunk a lot harder than normal! I couldn't add orange to the top semi circle, as there were orange spots there already. To contrast left the choices as nothing (page background), minty green or dusky rose, or book page....or white maybe??
I added the colour quote to the right hand page, when I need something to be straight, I use a clear ruler with grid lines as my acrylic block!
I had also added a bit more blocky type stamping from Mini 109 (MN109) releases last week, and you might also spot Mini 124, (MN124) another newbie, that script is just too delicious not to use everywhere.
Same logic was applied to the left side of the spread.
See you next time!
