Welcome to the August Color Combo Blog Hop. If you have been following the hop, then you should have arrived from Sugar and Scrap.
Here is the August Color Combination from Design Seeds:
Now I have a confession... I did not make a new project for this month. Instead, I thought more about the process of using a color combination.
For some reason, this color combination makes me think about fall. It certainly does not feel like fall is coming to South Texas anytime soon! Maybe I will be more inspired to use these colors more when the it cools down here.
I also find it difficult to use the color orange. I do not use it often, but I did find a couple of past layouts using orange.
I mostly associate orange with Halloween and Fall. I am having a hard time breaking away from that, and I want to buy this stamp set mainly to color the pumpkin orange: http://www.lawnfawn.com/products/harvest-season. This is a good pumpkin stamp too: http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/servlet/the-26567/2010-Hero-Arts-Rubber/Detail. I may have to work a pumpkin stamp into my fall crafting budget.
I do have some supplies on hand that will work with this color combination. I have a mix of the card stock and some copic markers and colored pencils. Orange with a hint of yellow would work well when coloring some flowers.
This is as far as I got for now. When I have some more free time, I hope to make a project with this color combination. For now, I would love to hear about how you decide to use different color combinations in your paper crafts. Please leave me a comment and continue on the hop. The next stop is Sue Althouse.
