Well, color-me-happy...

It's color-me-Friday! Last Friday's blog about color combos was such a hit, I'm back with my trusty color wheel to enlighten and inspire you (well, hopefully).

Today we will be discussing TRIADIC color combinations. This is when you make a perfect triangle between any three colors on the wheel. Here's the diagram.

Put it all together and what do you get?

Remember, although these colors are harmonious in theory-- choosing your tones and color-intensity for each (pastel vs. jewel tone) is both essential and critical for your color-scheme success. The best way to determine that? Play around with different shades of each color, do a google image search for your color scheme and see what you find, or head over to the Relish Invitation Builder to play around with all kinds of colors! There's no instruction manual for creativity, so go for it!
