Hey, all! I'm always trying to find a unique way to add color to my layouts. A few weeks ago I was in Home Depot and decided to grab some paint swatches while I was there. I always loved the idea of using paint swatches on my layouts for two reasons: (1) they come in such fabulous colors and (2) the paint names can also play into what you're scrapping about. For example, take this layout that I recently completed. I scrapped about one of my favorite pairs of shoes (weird, huh?) and I chose a paint swatch that was titled "Hot To Trot." The name of the paint color clearly fit perfectly with a layout about shoes and the color of the swatch matched the paper that I was already using.
Now, I know I picked up my paint swatches with the sole purpose of using them in a layout, but this is also a great way to recycle any that you may have lying around from any recent home decorating projects.
As always, thanks for stopping by! :-)
