How To Read a Mood Board - Thanks Jo!

 Good Morning Arty Peeps!
Welcome to the Scrapping Clearly blog.

We recently had a question in our Facebook Group about how to use a mood board. One of our fans answered that question beautifully so I am going to share it with you today

Jo Lovespaper - a mood board is a collection of colours, patterns, objects, such as this month's which I've added here. The idea is to look at the board and whatever comes to mind you go with!
For example, you might see and use the colour red, or see the bike an
d think of tires and wheels or tire treads. Or the doll with the sparkling earring and use diamontes. Or the Poppies and relate it to ANZAC day. You can do a combination or just use one item. I hope that helps!

Thank you Jo!

This month I used the colours because they were perfect for these pics of my boy at Jindabyne with his school. Black, red, grey/silver, and white.

Black gesso on white heavyweight card, with red paint highlights. My grey/silver is the Tim Holtz hashtag stamps (oh, how I love these!!) embossed.

My title is laid over a photo of the slopes, I inked around the edges of the Bella Rouge letters to make them stand out a bit more. I really like this alpha set, it's so versatile and goes with everything. There is also a whole range of scrapbooking products that match.

Can't wait to see how you interpret the mood board this month.

And before I go, I just want to say a huge thank you to the Boss Lady Kylie, and Kim, for hosting Lisa and me at Gundy Scraptacular last weekend. We had a ball.
Here we are waiting for the shop to open, we were a little early!

Til next time,
stay arty,
