One of the hardest parts about creating a digital scrapbook is choosing the right color combinations. I’m not a graphic artist per se, so I love when I can find resources to help me identify which colors come together nicely. I have found a website that I LOVE.
The Color Combinations website is primarily used for selecting carpet and paint colors for a home. However, color schemes and color palettes that work well in nature work well in home decor. And color palettes that work well in nature and the home, often work well in scrapbooking.
Here is just a sampling of color schemes that I found on the website that could be useful in selecting a color scheme for a heritage album. Using these color palettes as a guide will help you pick coordinating papers and embellishments that will enhance your family history album.
|ColorCombo295 uses browns and pinks|
|ColorCombo 287 uses monochromatic greens|
|ColorCombo 191 uses maroon and gray|
|ColorComb12 uses navy blue and gray|
|ColorCombo29 is a personal favorite|
If you’re unsure about which color scheme will work best, play with them on a sample page you create. Check out this post where I Play With Color on a Cover Page to see which combination I personally like best.
