My First Guest Blogger

I would like to introduce everyone to My first Guest Blogger: Bekah she blogs over at Reflections...on Living Creatively. I hope you enjoy her guest post and then go by and enjoy her blog, she has much more creative posts and idea's that like this post can be used by all crafters and artist.

I am Bekah from Reflections...on Living Creatively. While I am primarily a scrapbooker, brushing up on your knowledge about color theory is useful for any crafter! I am excited to be joining you today at Modista Modesta!

Red, Yellow and Blue are the primary colors, and Orange, Green and Purple are the secondary colors. Colors next to each other are analygous. When used together the look is cohesive and can convey a theme. Colors opposite each other are complimentary and create drama and energy.

Here I used the complimentary colors green and purple to communicate the fun and energy of the party.

Ahhh! I never, in my recent recollection, anyway, have ever seen this complicated color wheel! I only know the basic one: red, yellow, blue- orange, purple, green.
But this one makes so much sense! The fabric for the window treatment in my kids room- which I LOVE is that violet and green! No wonder I like it so much, those colors go together!
Thanks for sharing this! Its a fabulous resource, for sure!!!

Sonia, Thanks for having me as a guest, and CK, I'm glad you found it useful!

@CK - I love that color wheel also - I'm always putting what people would consider odd colors together, and get the comment "those are odd colors together, but they work."

It's always best to trust your eye and not the color rules, because sometimes - you just don't know all the rules :-)

@Bekah - Thank you for showing me how easy it can be to involve others in your work, and having such wonderful knowledge you are willing to in part to others.
