Welcome to our very first Mood Board for 2015. And this also marks the very first Mood Board for our brand new 2015 Jot Girls team.
Celebrating the New Year, we have pulled together a collection of fun colours like yellow, green, pink and purple with a mix of teal and charcoal teamed with confetti, string and glitter. Isn’t she a beauty?

Let’s take a look at what some of our Jot Girls have created using our Mood Board as inspiration..
Anna says, “This mood board just made me so happy! It is colourful, full of confetti and just makes you wanna have a party – don’t ya reckon!!
My favourite part about creating my page was doing the background. I used white cardstock and went right back to my Kindy days with paints and marbles – yep! I rolled that paint around and giggled like a little kid while doing it. Those marbles have a mind of their own for sure! LOL!
I documented the rainbow cake my sister and I made for my big girl’s 6th birthday. When she saw this page she smiled and said “YUM!” And I think that just about sums it up :-)”
Inspired by our Mood Board, Lory has created a spread from her December Daily album.
Here’s a few closeups
Natalie says, “I took my inspiration from the Mood Board fairly literally and built my card upon the same principles of a rainbow of brightly coloured circles against a charcoal background. I used texture paste through a stencil and to represent the confetti and then applied waterpaint over the top to get the different colours. The Mood Board has a very celebratory feel to it, and I have in mind to use my card for a Congratulations of some sort.”
Jamie says, “”Loved this mood board! It elicits the feeling of celebration for me. So I took it to celebrate my word for 2015. The colors with the base of the charcoal give a feeling of flight and freedom and a very optimistic view of what is to come. This board is a perfect way to launch the new year creatively.”
Meghann says, ”
I absolutely loved this mood board challenge! The grey background with pops of bright colours were right up my alley. To create my confetti background, I used a large background stamp which I embossed with gold embossing powder, then added coloured cardstock confetti on top.”
and a few closeups
Leanne says, “I was completely driven to create these pages based on the fabulous colours alone! The grey background with bright pops of colour in the first image was my starting point and inspiration behind my confetti pocket. To make this challenge easier, I converted most of my images to black and white. This allowed me to then focus on the accent colours to highlight my stories for my Project Life Weeks 47 and 48.
Kim says, “I went with a birthday theme. I loved the box tied up with string so I emulated that by tying a Heidi Swapp project Life card with twine!”
Beshka says, “As soon as I saw the colors & confetti I knew this would be the perfect inspiration for my 2015 Project Life intro page. I love turning the pockets of my pages into confetti pockets, especially for celebrations like welcoming + starting a new year! Creating my page went pretty smoothly until I went to add a bit of purple. I am not a fan of purple and as it turns out, so much so that I have kept it out of my stash entirely! Luckily my kiddos are not as against it as I am and I was able to find and snag a piece of purple construction paper from their art supply stash. I was still pretty stingy with adding it though and there is very little…but it is there! :)”
Sharmaine says, “I loved the fun colour palette of this mood board. It was the perfect platform to create a page with the bold orange and blue in my photo.”
Amanda says,”I wanted to add something cupcake-ish into my layout but couldn’t quite work out how to tie it into my story. After fiddling around a bit, I flattened out a patty pan / cup cake case and placed it behind an embellishment cluster. Hey presto it looked similar to a doily while adding interest and dimension to the top of the page without looking too random! The yellow “streamers” were made with washi tape and twist ties.
My girls are hopeless night owls – even worse when we are on holidays in an incredibly exciting city!”
