A Print a Day

Be sure to check out Yasmine Surovec’s A print a day. Her post for January 15, 2009 is a short & sweet tutorial on how to take simple black and white shapes, develop a color palette from a favorite photograph or magazine page, and  then use those colors to jazz up the black & white originals. This results in a collection of color coordinated design papers.

I gave it a try with a simple triangle design.

I created a palette from my Four Leaf Clover design paper.

Here are a couple variations.

Then, of course, you can put the two together in different transparencies, and voila!

It was great fun. Thanks, Yasmine!
