Hi there… Jess here today to share with you the April “In the Mood” mood board and what I created with it! I’m a big fan of grabbing inspiration from other images. You can draw from the colors, motifs, and patterns in a mood board to help you with the design of your layouts.
Here’s the April mood board:
You can see that the board is perfect for working with the Be Different collection. It has the same boyish charm and fun colors. I dug up this photo of my guys in front of a dinosaur and worked in all the colors from the mood board.
The board also features a lot of stars so I used that motif throughout. You can see them on the star pattern paper, cute metal Etcetera clip, and with the smattering of cork stars.
The photo is a busy one so I hand stitched a circle in coordinating blue twine around the subjects of the photo.
Although I truly love the way these Artist Edition wood titles look when they’re bare I decided my title needed more pop against the cream background so I painted it dark blue… these just look awesome either way!
So I hope you can see how fun it can be to work with a mood board. You can find them on Pinterest, blogs, and even make your own to use when you’re having a bit of a creative block.
