May MOOD BOARD Challenge - WINNER!

Post by Deanna13 » Sun May 01, 2016 6:56 am

I chose a little different style of Mood Board for this month in that it's mostly monochromatic. It's very Summery and there are a variety of different images to inspire you. Your requirement this month is to use any shade of blue/teal and you must use STAMPING. Please state what inspired you. This doesn't have to be monochromatic. You may add other colors as well. Image

I used a variety of blues and teals here and I was inspired by the Summer theme with the pool and the various water images.

It was really cold and he wore his wet shirt.

For the fine print....
This can be a paper or digital layout, pocket page, or card. All work must be new. You may do this multiple times. You may combine with one other challenge that allows that. Please link your work here. Deadline is May 31st. A random winner will be selected for a $5 ACOT gift card from me! If there are alot of participants I will draw a second name for a RAK too.


Hope this inspires you to create! Image

Love this mood board - my favorite colors!  I started this layout almost immediately but set it aside.  Now with a second straight day of rain and gloomy weather I am super-motivated to scrap so I'm making so much progress on May and NSD challenges!  Hopefully no one will notice that the dishes still haven't been done, vacuuming is behind schedule, dinner will likely be fast food, and I still haven't found a job.....

I ended up choosing the bottom right image for inspiration - I really liked the stripes as it gave me a way of using a paper collection that has been sitting unused for a year or so.  I specifically pulled out the paper collection for this challenge but was struggling to make headway with it.  The 'problem' with the paper was that the patterns were so bold that I was finding it hard to use in large sizes.  But once I re-examined the mood board and saw the stripes at the bottom, I had a bit of a 'eureka' moment.  I found that if I cut the paper into smaller pieces - strips in this case - the paper was much more manageable.  The end result is still bold for me but I am trying to learn to break out of my comfort zone and stop being afraid of loud and bold (funny - loud and bold is totally my verbal personality yet not typically my fashion/design style)

Amazing work with the Mood Board, Lisa! I love how you used the bold prints in strips. I've never use Ella & Viv but I like this line. Thanks so much for participating in my challenge! Image

Here's my page!  Another page for the Disney album! This is for the May Mood Board Mostly monochromatic, using the color blue/teal. My stamping is the title (Under the Sea). I know I have clear acrylic alphas that are so easy to use, but I just could NOT find them! So I had to use the 'old-fashioned' wood block ones. So hard to see where you stamp, which is obvious on this page! I was also inspired by the water, with my mermaid in the photo. I also thought the background paper was very like the pineapple wallpaper design, as well as the water in the bottom middle photo! I had to add the pop of orange!

Fantastic work with the Mood Board, Kathy! I love your background paper and I love that you stamped your title. I nearly did that this week when I couldn't find the right letters. Also love your flowers and the flourishes! Thanks so much for participating in my May Challenge! Image

My favorite colors Deanna! And water!!!! I think we must be related. If you look closely in the corner by the other starfish you will see a stamped starfish. Thanks for the challenge!

Here is mine:

I used 2 shades of blue mists and made a messy background. Used pool pictures and lots of color. My stamps are the words "Memories" and "Fun"
