Get It Scrapped! Tangerine Tango

***If you are here for the Frosted Designs Crafting Room Blog Hop, please click HERE.***

I am excited to stop in and share one of my first article assignment layouts for Get It Scrapped!.  You probably saw my first layout, that was shared HERE on the Get It Scrapped! Easy Scrapbook Pages site.  Today's layout was posted on the Get It Scrapped! Blog, this past Thursday.  In this article, Scrapbooking with the Color Orange, you will find some great information on the following topics:  Orange Dominating, Orange Drawing the Eye, Orange Guiding the Eye, and Orange Accenting.  There are some amazing layouts from the Creative Team, which demonstrate using each one of these techniques.  

On my layout "Funny Face", I chose to use Orange as an accent color.  



  
Orange is not the dominant color on my layout, but I used it as an accent, to guide your eye in a visual triangle.  Your eye is drawn to the Orange hearts at the top of the layout, where I placed my title and then moves to the photo, which is highlighted with the large Orange brad.  And finally your eye moves to the Orange scalloped border at the bottom of the page, where I placed the envelope that holds my journaling.  I also combined orange, pink, and green in a split complementary color scheme, which you can learn more about HERE.


And in case you were wondering why Orange is so popular this year...it was chosen as Pantone's 2012 Color of the Year.  So you will see it popping up in Fashion and also in the Scrapbook world.  I hope you will find a way to use Orange on an upcoming layout or project and that you will share it with us in the Gallery at Get It Scrapped!

A very cute layout using orange...a darling photo! I am working on a layout of DH with our DGD, would love to use orange but DGD has on pink, blue, and black! I guess I should have printed the photos in B&W! Thanks for the great inspiration!
