Using and choosing colors is a first step in learning how to scrapbook. What are your go-to colors? Do you use neutrals? A lot? Never? Wondering what neutrals can do for your pages? Want some ideas for using neutrals on your scrapbook pages? Read on.
Neutral colors may be totally without color or appear to be without color while having undertones of color.
Pure cool neutrals are black, grey, and white.
Near neutrals include ivory, brown, and beige, which have undertones of warm hues.

1) Make other colors look brighter and deeper.
2) Achieve a “classic” look.
3) Tone down colors that might overpower.
4) Provide a backdrop for complexity (i.e., many photos and elements as well as design complexity).
