February Jot Mood Board - Our Story


I found this mood board so inspiring. After seeing it I immediately wanted to delve into my stash and find coordinating products. I loved the black and white stripe, the book paper and florals, the glitter from the cushion and the pops of red. I chose to use the square cookie as my main inspiration and that supported me choosing the frames to add to the page, particularly the frame with the heart inside it. And of course what is a 'love themed' mood board without a love themed page? So I have documented the story of hubby and I.

Here's my page:

Layout title - Our Story


Products Used:
Cardstock: White, plain vellum

The journaling close up; our story.


I love how dimensional projects can be by layering and adding foam tape.


A top cluster helped balance the triangle in the bottom left corner. I tried to include all colourings within this cluster and a variety of textures.


The frames were the main inspiration I took from the Mood Board, as I thought they were shaped just like the cookies and I added the red 'Pink Paislee' chipboard heart to the centre of it like the cookie had a heart in the center.
