Supply Savvy- Using Color Palettes

Grey is not typically a color that I use. Neither are pastels. Grey mixed with pastels though makes a nice color combination that I might use more often. I never would considered trying it out if not for this week's color palette at the Scrapbook News and Review Blog.

Pre-made color palettes can be a great way to get your creativity flowing. They also are a great way to learn to combine colors in ways you had never before considered. Start with the color palette, then search through your patterned paper supplies to select matching colors. Before you know it, you will have a new kit to work with. Best of all, you will give a fresh look to older papers and embellishments when you mix them using new color combinations.

  1. Gray has been working it's way into a lot of my pages too, Christy!! Love the way you used it with the striped pp and the pop of Orange!

  2. Using neutral colors like grey is good for your artistic masterpiece. And your scrapbook right there shows how to use and mix it properly. Say, do you think that it should be spelt ‘grey’ or gray’? Some say that ‘gray’ is an old English word. Nonetheless, the shade is utterly appealing, simple, and timeless.
