My Guys (Mood Board Challenge)

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am bringing you in a little closer on my layout I created for this month’s mood board with a twist challenge.

Some may say what is a mood board and how do I use it? Well, let me explain (kinda). Our mood board is a grouping of images (most of the time loosely linked to the kit contents) that when you look at them they will inspire a mood you want to created with your project. Sometimes you maybe inspired to use the same elements/colors/objects from the mood board in your project. Is that clear as mud on how the mood board works?

Here is this month’s mood board, with a twist. What is the twist you might ask? Well, we decided to use a specific color palette to go along with the images we chose. So you have more to be inspired by.

Doesn’t this get your mojo going? I just love the colors.

Here is what I created:

I was inspired by some of the images. I just love clocks for masculine layouts. I went with the cards and the spade (used the image and color).

I love this photo, it is the last one I have of my dad and my husband before my dad died a month later.

How about some close-ups.

Hubby hates when I add flowers to layouts of him, so I only added a few. To make the few I added less feminine, I added a nut to it that says memories.  All these items, except for the stencil and black gesso are from the kit.


I have had these alphabet playing cards in my stash forever. They worked perfectly on this layout. That frame in the background came in a pack of flowers in the kit.

I just showed you how  I was inspired by the mood board, now it’s your turn. Join the challenge, it’s a lot of fun to see where your creativity takes you. Remember you don’t have to be a subscriber to play along. The prize for winning will be worth it.
