This summer I am inspired to share with you three different backgrounds you can use as a starting point for your own summer color schemes.
I’m thinking about the summer months, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m taking the easy route. In fact, I’ve just recently begun a new series of posts called “One Xs Roses,” where I will show you different backgrounds you can use to give your walls a fresh new look. I promise they are not just a bunch of flowers in your window.
One of the first things I do when I begin a new project is to look at my inspiration boards, and I find that the most common place that I use to find inspiration is my art journal. I usually save them for a few days before I start and when I finish, I go through the list and see what colors I really like and what I can use to create my own.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many different colors in one art journal, but I think that I have about 80. They are from everywhere, but the list is by no means complete. But if I do say so myself, the one above is of the most interest to me. It’s a red and green color scheme that I first saw in a magazine with a bunch of flowers on it, so it sort of catches my eye.
I’ve seen that same color scheme in a variety of different art journals, and I’m always drawn to them for their simplicity. It is also simple, but it is bright and colorful. I may or may not have used that same color scheme to create this art journal.
I don’t know what the art journal was, but I do know I love the simplicity of this color scheme. It’s like the flowers, but not. It’s a light green with an emphasis on the dashes of red and green. Like it was said in the video, flowers don’t like dashes.
It seems as though the color scheme was chosen because it seems to have an emphasis on the dashes and contrast with the flowers. I guess that is to give the art journal some depth to its color and contrast.
The color of the art journal was chosen because it seems like it fits the theme of the art journal. The background is light green and has the emphasis on the dashes and contrast with the flowers.
The art journal is actually a piece of art journal art, so the theme of the art journal is more apparent in that art journal than the flowers themselves. The background is also light green and has the emphasis on the dashes and contrast with the flowers as well.
