Most of us are familiar with the color wheel but may not always think about what a great tool it can be! This may be information many of you aren't aware of, never consider when creating art or decorating, or already rely on the color wheel as a tool. Which one are you? Do you use the color wheel?

If you are having trouble trying to get an image in your stitching or painting to become more noticeable, try adding a touch of the complimentary color around it and see what happens. I would enjoy hearing how this works for you. Try it in your decorating. I can just see a soft lavender room with a bouquet of yellow roses!

Do you have a color scheme in your home using complimentary colors? Do you use it in your artwork already or have you just tried it?
