Pebbles Inc reveal...

I'm hosting the Pebbles Inc blog this week and I set the challenge to the girls to create a layout using this colour scheme!

I love colour...every shade...and I love combining colours.  Yellow, orange and green combined together are an analogous colour scheme...meaning the colours sit next to each other on the colour wheel.   You can use this colour wheel to come up with your own colour schemes.  You can make any colour combination work as long as you get the balance right...all you need to do is add a neutral such as white, black or brown.
Here's my take on the colour combo.  My favourite colour to scrap with at the moment is yellow.  Yellow is such a cheerful and happy colour.  For this layout I wanted to use just a touch, but enough to balance the other colours. I have used a mix of patterned papers from the Downtown, So Tweet and Lil' Buddy collections from Pebbles Inc, as well as Pebbles Chips in yellow, brown Candy Dots and Pebbles Fishin' stickers.  I've varied the sizes of the patterns used and the percentage of each colour to create a balanced layout.
I don't often use themed stickers, however Pebbles has a range of Mini Theme stickers that coordinate perfectly with their patterned papers, and are really economical to purchase.

I still have a few stickers left on the sheet and plenty more fishing photos, so they definitely won't go to waste.  Andrew and Seth fish together regularly and the last time they went out, Seth caught 18 fish!!  I hope in the years to come, Seth will look back on these layouts and remember how great it was fishing with his Dad.

Head on over to the Pebbles Inc blog to see how Beth and Mimi tackled this colour combo.

Cheers, Lis.
