Challenge: Use browns, reds, blues and greens
Color Schemes and Artistic Tips
I've never been formally educated in color palettes. I've never paid much attention to where a color falls on the color wheel and what color is its opposite. I use colors that I love, and love to mix them together.
In this layout, I used browns, reds, blues and greens. I love how the bold red background paper contrasts against the black and white photo. The blues, greens and browns accentuate the red and bring everything together.
Don't be afraid to try different combinations. You never know; you might stumble upon a unique and perfectly perfect scheme.
Have fun and go for it! Find those outrageous and fun color schemes!

Is your photo from today, 10 years ago, or 50 years ago? You might want to research colors from different time periods and use popular hues that relate to the age of the photograph.
