(Our Mood Board has now closed. Our winner is #5 EmmaP – congrats!) It’s time to announce our June Mood Board and it’s another gorgeous board filled with colour and fun elements.
What a beauty of a Mood Board designed by Jot Girl Natalie. It’s an explosion of hot pinks, limes, black and red .. and who would think to team flamingos with watermelon! Yum.

Natalie says, “It might be winter here in Australia, but I’d much prefer to be thinking of summer sun, outside fun and bright fresh colours. It was obviously the watermelon images that inspired my card and I first did a little watercoloured painting to use as my focal point. I finished off with a few splashes of ink because just like eating a watermelon my cards are never done until I’ve added a few drips!”
Leanne says, “I fell head long in love with the colour scheme and really wanted to play with the pink on pink tones! Of course having a gorgeous green background really helped highlight those flamingo and watermelon colours perfectly.”
Anna says, “Such a fun colour scheme called for some fun photos so I pulled out a few silly selfie shots I took a couple weeks back. I came across a quote about laughter which I used as my title because I like it that much. Such a happy, fun page to put together :-)”
Lauren says, “I have been holding onto these fabulous photos of my Katie and her preschool best friend Charlie for sometime. When I saw this mood board I knew it couldn’t be more perfect to inspire me to create a layout using these photos. Thanks Natalie xx”
Kim says, “When I saw the flamingo in the mood board I couldn’t help but use my Heidi Swapp Minc machine to create my own hot pink foiled flamingo for my layout. ”
Amanda says, “Initially this mood board TERRIFIED me… but i ended up loving working with such fresh, vibrant colours and the watermelon and flamingo elements were so much fun.”
Sheree says, “I love the fresh summery feel of Natalie’s gorgeous mood board which is perfect for this photo of Madi enjoying the late afternoon sunshine! These colours were lots of fun to work with.”
Meghann says, “I was inspired by the half-circle shape of the watermelon to create a layered circle element on the left side of my layout in the mood board’s colours! ”
Sharmaine says, “My sister was soooo helpful! She wore pinks and green to a recent 70’s night! She must have known I needed a fun photo to snaffle off Facebook and print, perfect for this mood board. Thanks for the inspiration Natalie.”
What a glorious bunch of layouts from the Jot Girls.
