I hope I linked this right. I need ideas of what color scheme would look good for a layout for this photo. I was looking at my stash and I'm just not sure. I have some peach flowers..

What colors do you think would look good? How do you usually pick your color scheme?

Yeah, I was thinking of a purple hue too. I wish I had more purple and peach embellishments, lol.

I'd use sand/taupe with pale peaches. Basically, make the background fade so the photo pops. Perhaps layers of vellum?

Why don't mat the picture with a denim blue, then use a sand-colored background page. You could then work in some blue and maybe some peach accents.

Have you played with the photo match feature here on scrapbook.com? Here's a link: http://www.scrapbook.com/color/?m=photo

You upload your photo, and it suggests colours based on the scheme you want.

Thank you all for the responses! I did try the upload feature on here where it takes colors from your photo. I think I know what I want to do now.

Agree that matting on blue with sandy background would look awesome!!
