July! Already! Goodness. I don’t know where 2015 has gone but it’s whizzing by at incredible speed. (this mood board has now closed and our winner is #12 Chantalle McDaniel)
It’s time to introduce you to our July Mood Board.. another board filled with gorgeous-ness. This one was pulled together by Jot Girl Beshka Kueser and it’s loaded up with citrus colours, turquoise and splashes of green.

Beshka says, “Bringing a little Project Life action to the mood board challenge this month. ;D ”
Kim says, “I was inspired by the tropical fruit in the mood board. I created my own patterned paper using my tropical fruit images, my Minc and teal foil!”
Meghann says, “On a recent holiday, my daughter had a temper tantrum while we were touring a historic home, so I took her outside in the garden. I was so glad that I did, because I found this beautiful orange background wall to snap a few photos of her, which worked perfectly for the mood board colours! Unfortunately, she was her usual two-year-old self and I didn’t get one single image of her looking at the camera or smiling. So, I used this event to write my journaling about how difficult a two-year-old can be!”
Anna says, “I know I say it EVERY time but, at the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’ll say it again…I loved working with this mood board. I adore orangey yellows with teal – and the pops of floral pinks and mauve were just a delicious addtion to the colour palette.
I could not find any pineapple ephemera or anything (I know I have them somewhere but do you think I could find them when i wanted them? Of course not! ha!) SO…I created my own pineapples on the page by using whipped spackle and a cross-hatch stencil. When dried, I dabbed with a mini ink pad in a shade labelled ‘violet’. I was stoked with how it turned out!”
Sheree says, “I’ve always loved orange and turquoise together but it was fun to add in splashes of pink and green to my page too with this pretty mood board! Such a fun combo!”
Sharmaine says, “Because I love orange but it’s a hard colour to use in bulk, I really wanted to push myself by using the orange as the background. Proved to be tougher than I thought so I resisted the urge to stop and instead I just let the Mood Board colours flow for me. Because sometimes we have to listen when the colours speak (or at least that was the mantra I went with!).”
Nat says, “To me the orange dominates in this mood board and it’s such a happy joyous colour that I was drawn to making a celebratory type of card. I built up some layers on top of one of my favourite Studio Calico papers that I’m still hoarding the scraps of! It’s quite a different colour scheme for me, but one that I really enjoyed.”
Leanne says, “I was so inspired by the colours on this Mood Board that my story easily came together. I also wanted to create a fresh look on my layout without the feminine touches. Therefore, colours + story + inspiration, culminated in a layout sharing my five year old’s passion for hockey and the crazy number of hours he spends practising.”
Mardi says, “Loved this mood board Beshka!”
Lauren says, “Loved everything about this Mood Board Beshka. 🙂 ”
And look out.. because I even created a layout for this month’s Mood Board.. and I loved the colours in the board and loved pulling this little 6x8in layout together.. which will be part of my Project Life album.
Now. It’s YOUR turn. What will you create?
