Colour my world mini album
Ever made a colour my world mini album? For a different twist on mini albums a book based on the different colours in your life is a great idea. Scrap a one or two page layout per colour. You can organise it in a number of different ways depending on the number of photos you already have with a variation of colour.
"The best color
in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!"
- Coco Chanel
Make an album of your favourite colours (even if this means only one colour) Select photos or pictures from magazines etc of stuff using these colours. The photos or pictures do not necessarily need to be of your favourite items. Use scrap pieces of different shades of colour and patterns throughout the album.
If you're not sure which colours to use just use all the colours of the rainbow including black and white
Choose photos where one colour is dominant or if you have photo editing software you can make your prints black and white and highlight the selected colour like the red santa hat in black an white photos of kids that we see so often.
Make a list of your most favourite items or choose those select items that make you who you are. EG. The lipstick you are never caught dead without, your running shorts or shoes, your business card, etc. Pick photos that give a good variation of colour. You may find you will have to get the camera out and take some pictures to make up for those that you don't have.
Alter a childrens board book and turn it into a book of colours to aid in teaching your child about colour. A one or two page layout would be perfect. Use bright bold colours that really stand out. .
Using characters from their favourite T.V. Shows is a good source of colour material. Eg. Sesame Street has a huge range of characters of different colours. Cookie monster = Blue; Big Bird = Yellow; Elmo = Red; Ernie = Orange; Oscar = Green; The Count = Purple
