Welcome to another week of Project Life Inspiration at Elle’s Studio! This week I am sharing the week of February 27- March 4 of my Project Life album.
Every week when I start putting together my Project Life layout, I begin to think I little bit about my color scheme. Really, anything goes in Project Life. Your layout can be as coordinated (or mixed-match) as you prefer. However, the scrapbooker in me can’t help but adding a little coordination when putting together my page.
I have found that it can be a bit of a challenge to identify a color scheme when there are so many photos and memorabilia represented in a week. So what I do first I find a single color that seems to be reoccurring in my photos (or just one color I want to focus on) and highlight it with papers and embellishments. For this week’s layout, I focused on green.
Since it was the first week in March, green worked perfectly. There isn’t a TON of green in my photos– really only in my sons shirt, a bit in the salad photo, and the background of chalkboard in the bottom left photo. But by using embellishments like the green pennants in the New Bright and Vintage Pennants, I was able to highlight this color.
I also used a bit of red and orange in my color scheme. Red and orange are hardly represented in my photos at all, only in my memorabilia and embellishments. I used red tags and washi tape to highlight the Chick-fil-A packaging and the dentist bag. You will also see touches of orange in a few journaling cards and brads sprinkled throughout the layout.
I hope this gives you some ideas about adding color to your Project Life. Thinking of your embellishments, tags, and journaling spots as a key element in pulling together a color scheme will help you worry less on choosing photos “that match” and focus more on the photos that tell your story.
