Colors on My Mind

I like to test color combinations on smaller projects, like notecards, before using the color combinations for photo-album pages.

As I was scrapbooking last week, I felt in desperate need of some color inspiration. I was especially looking for ways to incorporate red and neutrals in a trendy, fresh way.

Pottery Barn's Chesapeake Collection combined light green, light blue, and red against a backdrop of sand.

I combined blue, red, and the sand color on one card.

I was happy with the result, although I think a series of red stripes behind the blue might have worked better than the red waves.

Where do you go for color inspiration?
