A Note from Karen

For me, color plays a huge part in scrapbooking. I nearly always use my photos as a cue for the color, but also consider the mood I want to portray. Blue-greens are not my favorite shades, but they were clearly the dominant color in the photos for this layout of my daughter playing at the park. To balance things to better suit my tastes, I chose papers that also included lime/chartreuse greens—which I really love. This led my layout to have an analogous color scheme, or one that pulls from colors sitting next to one another on the color wheel.
