Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

    Hi @nour360,

    Usually, designers look at complementary colours for brochures.

    Try this site for some ideas.

    It depends on the green though. Although I was always taught that green and blue clash, depending on the blue and on the green, they can look very attractive together. Have you finished your design @nour360? What did you decide?

    @nour360: Try mixing green with blue. It's a cool combination. ;)

    I think, the 'White' is best color, for mixed with 'green' .
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,672 mod
    @nkhoshbakht_f: It's a good blend as well. It's will be a light green combination. :)

    Hello every body. In my opinion, to select the best matching colors, it is better to see how colors appears in the nature. Because whatever we see in the nature looks normal and beautiful. On the other side, your answer is somehow related to the real color you already have. I mean there are many many green color that are very different from each other. Personally, I think brown or gray is a good combination with green.

    Green and red are very well together. Look at strawberry or watermelon.

    @Fatimag: I agree. It depends on the person how he/she perceives the color green well combined with other colors from rainbow. ;)

    @EugenyAntonov: I like those fruits as well. :)

    From the people's comments, I can conclude that green really can come with many colors. If you consider a rainbow, green comes with yellow and blue. In a forest, you see the combination of green and brown. Leaves are green and trunks and branches are brown. If you look at a strawberry or a tomato you see the combination of red and green. So, it seems that you have many choices.

    Nour, you can use lemon yellow colour as it looks really unique with light green in the background.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,131 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Fatimag There is famous concept called 'Picture and ground". It is all about this. Usually, either picture or ground goes in a contract to each other in the reverse scheme.

    I like turquoise with green but it depends on the shade of green.
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,672 mod
    It's my first time to hear that turquoise, and this is the result of my research:

    @Fatimag yeah almost each colour can combine with green. i see on your statement :D
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,131 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @faiz49 but there are some unique colours that look awesome with the green colour. I think it varies from person to person.

    Yes @faiz49. I believe it depends on the person how he she perceives or interprets color combinations. ;)

    you can try canary yellow or pink (pink or pink ) ... but the color combinations depends upon the theme, sometimes it's good to use only light green, and black/white and dark gray
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 28,481 mod
    Tone is important. Dark green is likely to look better with certain colours, while pale green would look nicer with other shades.

    I think, yellow is the best color with 'green'
  • sarathaer93sarathaer93 Posts: 27 ✭✭
    I think there is a combination between green and yallow. The color gree could fit all colors because we can find alot of roses with different colors but there are share green in the leaves and trees.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 28,481 mod
    Green is a mix of blue and yellow, so either go well.

    it always depends on what you're drawing...
