Lately I’ve been into pink.
It surprised me recently when I realized how often I turn to pink as my dominate color these days. I’m sure it has something to do with bright sunny summer days.
Have you been into pinks lately, too? If so, here are some ideas to keep the pink love rolling in your scrapbooking for a little while longer.
And if not? Well, maybe you’ll find a few pink palettes here that you’d like to try, just to change things up.
Analogous: pink-orange to orange to yellow-orange
All three of the colors on this page share the same hue (orange), which makes them especially harmonious. Pink-orange is the dominant color. The white, grey, and black are neutrals.
Lots of Colors
Pink and red are the main colors here, but I added pops of yellow and blue and green accents to communicate childhood energy for this story.
Monochromatic: Pink, pink, and more pink!
Look how the colder hot pink contrasts with the subtle muted grapefruit-like pink. This page also has bits of pink-orange.
Ballet Pink with Metalics
This is actually an analogous color scheme: pink to yellow. Gold is a yellow, and pink is a red, plus there is some orange mixed into some of the metals and pinks. I mixed a little pink into the metallic color you see on the swirls to make all the colors work more in harmony together. I think it looks just dreamy!
Analogous with Pops of Blue and Green
On this page you get the creamy, dreamy harmony of an analogous color scheme in the paint and mist background, with a burst of contrast from the blue and green accents. If you ever start out with an analogous color scheme but realize it’s too calming for your story, try this.
Analogous with Gold
Can you tell I love analogous color palettes? Gold is the dominant color on this page, but pink runs a close second place in getting your attention. There are red and orange accents, and the analogous color actually runs as far down the wheel as green (yes, it’s allowed!). The green comes in the smallest amount and makes a slight but important impact: more energy.
I assembled most of these pages in recent Paperclipping video tutorials as I shared other tips and tricks. Click here for information about a membership!
So what do you say? You ready to play with some pinks?
