Color Day Book

     Happy National Color Day! Drea here, with a mini book (4 1/8" X 6 1/8") to demonstrate some color terms and combinations made with stamping and Dylusions Paints from

      I started with white cardstock filled with stamping done with an old rubber stamp and the Prima Marketing (Garden Fable) Stamp, using Ranger Archival (Jet Black) Ink. Then it was adhered to my book, recycled from a cracker box, and made into the pages that fill it. For the cover, I embossed the Prima Marketing (Circle Stitches) Stamp with Ranger (Rainbow Sparkle) Embossing Powder, also used on the stitching on the spine, stamped with the Bo Bunny (Stitches) Stamp, and the color wheel, stamped with the Prima Marketing (Old Town) Stamp.  To mimic a stained glass window, I painted it with Dylusions Paints, and gave it two more coats of embossing powder for some sparkle and shine.

     The title was done with some old Thickers that I covered with Prima Marketing White Gesso, painted with Dylusions Paints, and coated again with the same embossing powder.

     This was my first attempt at hand-stitching my binding, done with a strong white thread that glows in the dark.

     The splats were done with a stencil and blending tool, using White Linen, After Midnight, and Black Marble Dylusions Paints. To enhance the white splat and make it visible, I embossed it with Rainbow Sparkle Embossing Powder.

      The color terms, definitions, and color wheels were printed onto white cardstock. In this example, the color wheel shows purple and yellow as Complementary colors, but here I used Tangerine Dream and Polished Jade Dylusions Paints instead.


     On this spread, I used primary colors for my Triad, with Cherry Pie, Lemon Zest, and London Blue Dylusions Paints.

     The paintbrushes were stamped with the Prima Marketing (The Archivist) Stamp, colored with Brushed Pewter Distress Spray Stain, and the background done with the (Garden Fable) Stamp.

     I love these Analogous colors together using Fresh Lime, Cut Grass, and Polished Jade Dylusions Paints!

     All of the enamel dots on the color wheel were painted with my finger to match the splats, and coated with Ranger Glossy Accents. The strip under the color wheel was done with the Prima Marketing (The Archivist) Stamp.

          This Split Complementary color combo was made with Postbox Red, Crushed Grape, and Fresh Lime Dylusions Paints.

     Finally, I used Lemon Zest, Crushed Grape, Squeezed Orange, and Calypso Teal Dylusions Paints for this Double Complementary scheme.
