4 Alarm Fun

One of the things I love about Get It Scrapped! is the wide range of topics and trends they cover.  The Team always has a great assortment of assignments to choose from each month. Today, Get It Scrapped! is sharing an article based on Scrapbooking with Red.  You can use color in a lot of ways on your layouts.  Here are a few suggestions:  1) dominating, 2) catching and drawing the eye to your focal point or 3) guiding the eye around the page and/or accenting.





Our local Fire Station held an open house, and we took the kids, to join in the activities.  The color Red, was a perfect choice for this page, because it is a color that most of us associate with the Fire Station and Fire Trucks.  I used Red as a dominant accenting color and used it throughout the clustering and layering on my layout.

If you are looking for more fresh ideas for using color on your layouts, come over to Get It Scrapped! and see the Creative Team's take on using Red.
