Donna’s Blog Post – Colour Balance

by | Jan 14, 2022 | Inspiration

Hello crafty friends, it’s my turn to share with you some inspiration 🙂

Colours are an important part of our scrappy world, I was tidying up and sorting though some of my papers and an old decorating rule came to mind.  60-30-10.

It’s a classic rule for decorating a room, but it works just the same on layouts.  60% is your dominant colour, 30% is a coordinating colour and 10% are your accent or highlight colour.  This works to create a visual balance to your pages, but like all rules it’s doesn’t always have to be used, but it can help if you find your having trouble getting a page to “look right”.

For example my page below – 60% is my green – 30% is yellow and 10% blues.  And I’ve taken a bit of liability with the rule in my 10%, by having some pastel coordinating flowers.
And of course,  once you know how the rules and how they work, you can then learn how to break them!

Have fun with colours
Happy scrapping
