1. Lead with Color

Use bright accent colors to lead the eye around your digital scrapbooking or artistry page.

  • Accent colors in Bright hues pack a punch on the Visual Interest front.
  • Use them in small doses in the form of WordART or embellishments and transfers/overlays from the ArtPlay Palette Cosmopolis.
  • Notice how Miki has placed the red elements in a Visual Triangle to frame her Focal Image.
