Mood Board #11 - Jot Magazine - Happy Little Moments


Today I am here to share the latest Mood Board Challenge at Jot Magazine created by fellow Jot Girl Anna Allan. Anna has put together this rich, luscious colour palette for us this month - filled with magenta, gold, white, cream + glitter and crackled paint.

When I saw this board I was in love! The magenta and gold, I just {heart} it! But it wasnt as easy to create a layout with as I thought, lol. It took me a few attempts to create, as I would sit down to get it done and the mojo just was not there at all. After a few attempts I love what I came up with. 

I tried a new technique for me of adding a big of water to a ranger embossing paste and dripping it on my page. I then added the gold zing and heat set it. It turned out pretty well, I love the effect. I have also embossed the gold in the silhouette cut title. 

Here is the Mood Board:

Here is my layout, I was inspired by the tulle in image 3, the flags in image and the flowers and paint drips in image 6 ... and the colours of course. This is a layout I created to document Charlottes first official plait! So cute!
