I've been enjoying Nic Howard's Color Class over at Big Picture Classes. (formerly Big Picture Scrapbooking) We've covered the warm colors: red, orange and yellow. My favorite part of the class so far has been making this 6x6 mini album.
Of course there are also layout ideas for each color. The red is my favorite because I used two photos of my grandmother that span about 50 years. The orange and yellow layouts were inspired by pet photos.
I do love the warm colors. Red is the one I'm most comfortable with, probably because it is my mom's favorite and a color I wear frequently. Orange is growing on me. And although I can't wear it, I love a bright yellow. It just makes me happy. Being a visual learner, color is one of my favorite design elements. I want to learn to use any color effectively, not just my favorites. What colors or color combinations tend to catch your attention?
