Jot Magazine April Mood Board Challenge

Whilst I love a Mood Board challenge that feels comfortable, you know, like it's in "my colours," I love it even more when it starts with my colours and then pushes it out further to a place I've never been before :-)

That's what I thought when I saw the Mood Board challenge from Jot Magazine this month. I mean it includes the pink and sky blue which are totally my go-to colours, but then it adds in red, maroon, grey and gold glitter which never would have occured to me (ok, so the gold glitter would have... but certainly not the maroon!) but the result is magical don't you think?

As usual for me when it comes to a colour challenge I like to pull out a bunch of coordinating supplies and then start moving them around. This time I started with the chipboard packaging as my base - I was inspired by the photo in the top right with all the square frames - and then I went to work filling in all the little gaps.

There was no doubt the XOXO cushions were going to spark an embellishment idea (many of the other Jot Girls have had similar thoughts) and for me they ended up being the focus sentiment. I stacked up double Thickers for extra dimension and filled the centre of the O's with gold glass glitter.

Which part of the Mood Board inspires you the most? Will you play along with us this month? Find out all the challenge details HERE.
