I started with this month's kit by Little Yellow Bicycle and mixed in some pink accents from October Afternoon and My Mind's Eye to match my daughter's pink jacket.
When you're mixing colors, the general rule is gallon - quart - pint. Your main color is the gallon; here, the neutrals. I'm counting both the brown and white.
The second color should be less -- the quart. In this layout, it's the blue. There's blue in the bottom paper, the title and the banners.
And accent colors, the pint, are even less - pink, in my case. Apart from the photos, I have three small groups of pink in the rose, the heart and flower in the title and the small tag in the right corner.
Gallon, quart, pint.
