Hello and happy August!!!  Amanda and I are so excited to share our new summer moodboard with you all today!

This time around we are approaching the idea of a moodboard a little differently.  Instead of only having inspirational photos to stir your creativity, we thought it would be fun to specifically share some of our ideas on how each of these images can be interpreted and used in our memory keeping!  So let's get to it ; )

Column 1 -
  1. Bold graphic shapes are so popular right now, this images gives me the idea of combining a bunch of different elements into the shape of a circle.  Think, a photo surrounded by journaling or embellishments that form a circle on a plain background.
  2. Custom and premade die-cuts are all the rage.  Layering the negative space of a die-cut with a photo behind would give lots of interest and depth.  Plus, this saying is pretty great would make a perfect project title.
  3. Since most of us are enjoying watercolor, I love the idea of coloring in the outline of an image with watercolor.  Think, a stamp or journaling card with the shape of an image or word that would really pop if you added some color.
Column 2 -
  1. I originally created this graphic to share the predominant colors of the moodboard.  However, it gave me the idea of layering strips of paper into a similar shape.  It would make a fun background and be a creative way of using up some of your scraps.
  2. Summertime rainbows are magic.  This image just made me want to use a rainbow in scrapbooking.
  3. Stars.  This reminded me of that clear summer night sky.  It would be fun to create a homemade miniature star garland to add onto a scrapbook page or maybe connect a bunch of stars together with embroidery thread to create a constellation or shape.  Think, punching out stars and using your sewing machine to sew them together for the garland.  For creating a constellation you could use stars on a die-cut background or attach a bunch of punched out stars onto a background and connect them all with embroidery thread.
Column 3 -
  1. Yummy, sweet, adorable fruit!  This illustration is just too perfect!!  Try adding a little fruit paper or embellishment in your scrapbooking.  Also, just as a side note:  LOVE the color combo of this!
  2. I still really want to try nail polish marbling onto paper and/or a photo.  There are lots of tutorials out there.  Let's make it happen this summer : )
  3. Still love ombre and that mint color!  Think a die-cut (or hand cut) in the shape of a mountain layered towards the bottom of your layout with your title at the base.
