22nd May - Mood Board

 Today's challenge is a ...
 Mood board, it was created by DT member Lydia.

It has a lovely bright and summery feel to it. Here are the design team's layouts;

My little niece is a little ray of sunshine so she was an easy choice for this mood board, I have fun creating a mixed media background for this layout with the colours featured and added glittery Thickers, flowers and the word sunshine too.

The main thing that hit me when I saw the mood board were the glitter jars. All I could think of do I incorporate tonnes of gold glitter into my page? And then it hit me - flower stencil as a base! And the rest is history... hahaha What was your inspiration from the mood board?

I really love Lydia's moodboard because of the color palette. The Bo Bunny Sweet Life papers were fit to it perfectly. I choosed one photo of my Mom what was taken during her first visit in Slovenia. We went up to the Bled Castle to see the wonderful view. This is why I choosed the triangle shapes (remind the hills) and the title.

Obviously, I was inspired by the "YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE" phrase in the bottom right corner of the mood board, but I also pulled in the array of soft colors in the bottom left corner and the flowers from the top left.  The paint brushes and their trails of paint drew me to get a little messy with gesso, watercolors, and acrylic paints; and I couldn't resist adding plenty of shimmer and shine as inspired by those glittery jars in the center.

Paint and the colour palette were the main inspiration that I took from the mood board. I did have to add some flowers too and the title with the word 'sunshine' just for fun!

I loved making this months mood board and I hope you enjoy creating with it. I actually in fact was challenged to make a layout with it, but I got there in the end and I am really happy with how my layout turned out. I used mostly the stunning Maggie Holmes "Bloom" collection and I also got a little messy with the bright yellow paint in the background. Can't wait to see all your creations!

What a fab mood board Lydia! I have used a mixture of Dear Lizzy's Fine and Dandy  and Happy Place collections to create my layout. How stunning is this cut file from Silhouette design store! I hope you will play along with us and I look forward to seeing all your creations x

I worked with pictures of the various expressions of my nephew.
In the background there is two sheets of paper.(Pinkfresh studio) 
Most of the decorations were using the product of companies from Pinkfresh studio. Flower die cut is Pubble inc.

The pretty pink bloom, gold glitz and "you are my sunshine" phrase are what caught my eye.  I started with a bold floral paper and then toned it done with a large black title and a small triangle print.  

I love these colors: teal, yellow and pinks. My daugthers made a shooting photos last week. So this picture with the yellow dress was perfect! Gesso, Twinkling H2Os, stamps and flowers are my fave at the moment.

I think the design team did a great job with it, I hope they have inspired you to join in with us. You have until 4th June to join in.
We look forward to seeing your layouts!
