I referenced a good book on color combinations a couple of posts ago and though I would share what we used it for.
These are some of the cover sheet designs for the Modern Masters stencil collection. I decided to forego actually stenciling them out by hand and then scanning the art as I wanted a more clean, graphic look for the retail environment they will be sold in. After I put post it notes on the color schemes I thought would work, Lauren (my in-house graphic artist) used those colors and some Illustrator tricks to create a “stenciled” look and then we tweaked them from there. If only it were so quick and easy to edit other things in life!
