Monthly Challenge: Moodboard Challenge set by Niki
Happy New Years Magpies!
Niki here today and it’s my turn to set the monthly challenge. I’ve put together a moodboard for you to be inspired by and I’ve chosen images that could be interpreted in lots of different ways. I really enjoy using moodboards for inspiration becuase there’s usually LOADS of things in them that can provide inspiration.
For example in the moodboard above I see: the colours (pink, red, gold, black, turquoise, red, silver, yellow), polka dots, gold foil, squares, circles, sparklers (starbursts), clocks, drinks, celebrations, the swirls on the nails, sweet treats, cake, Happy New Year and 2019 (great for a New Years celebration layout or for New Years Resolutions), sequins, confetti (on the cake and around the macarons), drinks, party hats, stars and probably loads more that aren’t immediatly obvious…what a list!!
I chose to be inspired by the colours, the circles, polka dots, the numbers, the celebration theme and the sequins. There’s also a party hat in my photo. I started off by adding some pink texture paste through a polka dot stencil and some white texture paste through a star stencil. Once dry I built up some layers under my photo and included some polka dot patterned tissue paper too.
I’ve used Shimelle ‘Head in the Clouds’ for this layout’. I added a few circles and fussy cut some cameras.
I added loads of sequins dotted down the layout, using navy as those are the colour of the sequins in the moodboard, but I’ve also used pinks too.
I’ve used a Perspextive by Bramblefox for my title coupled with the number 36 from Willow Lane Gold Foiled Thickers. I outlined some of my stenciled texture paste with a grey pen and also doodled a border around the edge of the layout and added some dots too.
To play along with the January 2019 Monthly Challenge, simply create a layout or project using the Moodboard for Inspiration and head over to the Hey Little Magpie Papercraft and Scrapbooking Chat and Inspiration Facebook Group. Put your creation in the challenge album by midnight on 31st January 2019. We will draw a winner at random from all the entries and the winner will receive 1000 Hey Little Magpie Points, worth £10 for use in the store. I’m looking forward to seeing what you make for this challenge.
