Howdy, Howdy Howdy! It is Liz and I am bringing you the last challenge of April 2011! I am very excited to share this technique with you.
When using colors on our layouts, it is important to balance the colors by varying the amount of each color. This is often called the galllon/quart/pint rule or concept. Your main color is what you use a gallon of on your layout. You one or two secondary colors are the quarts on your page. And finally an accent color is a pint, used sparingly as a pop on a page. Your challenge is to apply this concept to one of your layouts. I want to be able to clearly tell what is your “gallon”, “quart(s)”, and pint.
Here is my page:
Note: my gallon is black, my quarts are the pink and purple, and my pint is the gold.
