Hello! Today I want to share my weekly Project Life pages with you and show you two ways to deal with a photo that has a color that doesn’t fit in with your main color scheme. I pulled my photos for the week and noticed a very strong blue and yellow theme across most of them and remembered the Sunday Morning collection featuring those colors as well. The cards fit perfectly with my photos and I also added two of the digital papers to extend the set a little further.
My page had a great, cohesive look and the colors were awesome. But I love color, and my home is full of brightly colored accents, like this red blanket my dog was sleeping on in the spring sunlight.
Unfortunately it didn’t go well with the rest of the spread on its own. Luckily, I have two go to solutions that can help you solve this problem.
1. Convert the Photo to Black & White
This is the trick I use most often when I have one odd color among my photos. It is a simple thing to flip the photo using my favourite Black & White filter and simply continue. Here is the spread with the photo converted and the color scheme remains the pure blue and yellow with a few wood accents to add some interest.
2. Embrace the Color
For this idea, I went through my stash and found two items in a similar (not exact, but close enough) red that I thought could add to the spread easily. You will want to have 3 things in your accent color so that you can create a visual triangle, that is the most pleasing way to introduce a color that was not a part of your original palette.
I replaced the photo, added the small flair button on the photo of the soup, and added the letter stickers on the blue card to create a little title. Easy.
Let me know which layout is your favourite in the comments!
