Primary Colors

The three primary colors are red, yellow, and blue – why? Because they cannot be created by mixing any other colors. When you mix primary colors together, you’ll get what is called a secondary color like shades of purple, green, and orange. If you mix one primary color with a secondary color, you’ll get a tertiary color (confused yet?), and that’s when we get colors like blue-green, or yellow-orange. Honestly, this had to be one of the hardest inspiration boards I’ve made. Mixing primary colors, making it look like a feasible wedding, and not looking like a preschool classroom was difficult. What do you think – does it look ok?
