Scrapbooking

Christmas mood board

So I had an idea in my head to make a December daily album for a long time. If you are not familiar with the term: this is a scrapbook style photo album where you basically document every day of December, document kind of winter holiday mood.
Then I started to think of supplies. I saw a couple of scrapbooking kits available on the market, but none really represented the mood and color pallet I wanted my album to have.
So then I thought of creating my own kit. And of course I needed a mood board to help me with the colors and ideas! I’ve drilled through Pinterest searching for photos that I like, but at some point I felt that I need this mood board be life and 3D πŸ™‚

And here it comes! I printed our photos from Pinterest and simply glued them to an empty canvas, added couple of touches and that’s it. Really easy!

My mood is about white, beige, brown colors, gold and silver, glitter, transparencies, cork, soft lights, coziness, home.
This mood board is also about handwriting. I want to use brush and ink to write phrases and words I find important and appropriate.

I’ve designed tags and banners for my kit, you might have seen them in Instagram, 3 of them are on this mood board.

P.S.: this is a first time I am blogging via iPad, quite interesting feeling πŸ™‚ So many things I much faster than on the computer, just typing is slower.

Have a good one!
