Hello Friends! I’m sharing the May “In the Mood” mood board using the new Burlap and Bouquets collection. The colors, geometric motif as well as bits and pieces on this mood board are diverse yet connected.

Here is the May BE•YOU•TIFUL Mood Board:


The board is great to use with the Burlap and Bouquets collection. The vintage yet fresh and chic colors are great to use with any theme. Gold is such a trendy color to use at the moment. The pink with the golden, earthy and yellow tones in the paper and embellishments were great to include with the photo taken while on vacation one year.


The geometric motif paper, Baby’s Breath was used to imitate the design and color of the basket weave on the straw hat. The plain paper compliments and draws out the golden tones of the photo.  The watercolour abstract circles on the board inspired me to use the Party paper with the same circle design. A brag card was used behind the photo as a photo mat and to repeat the burlap design. The ephemera flower and ticket were raised with foam squares.


The burlap texture of the bow reiterates the natural textures of the hat as well as the wooden window shutters, cushion fabric and pegs on the board. I incorporated a zig zag punch, tickets and small decorative tag to reproduce the chevron design on the cushions.


The floral design and tags on the board are reflected on the page using the small decorative tags and floral elements from the ephemera pack. The words on the tags created the mood and title for the layout. I included stamping of a word and a short phrase. The colors and textures of the buttons were used to co-ordinate the shades and textures on the board. The twine removed from the small and larger tags were used to thread the buttons and wrap around the one small decorative tag.
