A Challenge and a Mood Board- Just For You!

Happy Valentine's Day to you all!
My gift to you is a challenge and a colour palette to get you inspired.

The SUYS challenge this month is a quote challenge which is:
"Follow your heart and happiness will follow".
 I thought this was such a versatile quote. Still capturing the month of love without restricting your layout to a romantic one. 

I went with quite a 'Valentine's Day' inspired palette. I really love the combination of pinks, reds and purples and also added a hint of orange and gold.

My handmade embellishment is the purple button which I made from Polymer clay.

For the background I added some coloured mist to some texture paste and spread it over a stencil. I used a gradient effect to capture all the colours (though it is hard to tell as the middle section is covered).

And as promised here is the palette I put together using the colours featured on my layout. 
I LOVE putting together mood boards. There is something satisfying about finding a collection of images that compliment each other so well colour wise. All images below were sourced from Pinterest. 

Please head over to Show Us Your Stuff and have a look at the other DT examples. I'm sure you'll find something to inspire you there if my mood board hasn't already. Don't forget your hand embellishment on your layout either.

Thanks for stopping by today, 
Sophie xx

  1. I love mood boards. I use them often to create layouts. Sometimes it's just what I need to get inspired. But I've never created my own! I love the mood board you've created. A splash of gold is always good :)
