As much as I love the paper textures and the flowers, sometimes working with ScrapSimple products can feel overwhelming because the color scheme is left up to me. When I start feeling overwhelmed, I head over to my stash and pick an existing collection that has a color palette I’m drawn to, then I use the Color Picker tool to select colors from it. For this layout, I picked the purple, pink, and teal from Old Friends Collection Biggie.
Let me show you my favorite way to color ScrapSimple template products by using the Hue/Saturation window.
First, select the color you want your paper or embellishment to be. You will see the selected color in Foreground/Background Color Palette.
Open the Hue/Saturation window, then click Enhance > Adjust Color > Adjust Hue/Saturation. Put a check in the Colorize box. You may or may not see your embellishment change color at this point, depending on the color you started with and the color you are changing to. Don’t worry if the color seems off.
Adjust the Saturation slider and the Lightness slider until your paper or embellishment is the color you want. Click OK to close the window.
That’s it! Finding a great color scheme for templates is really that easy. Use an existing collection to find the perfect color scheme and recolor them using the Hue/Saturation window.
