Hello everyone! I'm Nina from Stylizimo blog, and I'm very happy to be a guest blogger here on Heart Handmade today! Claire wanted me to share some ideas on how to make mood boards, and I will gladly give you some tips.
There are no rules of course on how to make a mood board. Many prefer to have them on the wall where they collect all the inspiring things/pictures they find over the years, or you can for example collect your inspirational finds in a book. It's up to you!
What I like to do when I need to find inspiration, is to make a mood board on my dining table and take pictures of them. (This way I can practice on my photography as well.) I like the mood boards to have a colour theme, so the first thing I do is to find everything that I have in the colours that I want to make a mood board out of, and I start to make a frame with the paper that I'm using. Then I place the other items around on the paper, building it up until I'm happy with the result. It's such a great way to give you creativity a challenge!
Sometimes I paint or make drawings that I add to the mood board if I feel that something is missing. Just try to think of everything that you can use to make the result you want. Get creative!
Do you like making mood boards / inspirational boards?
I would love to see them, so if you like you can upload pictures of your mood boards in "Heart Handmade Flickr group" right here.
Oh, and since I'm here, I would like to invite you all to be a member my newly launched website Stylizimo.com. Come and have a look at least - It will give you a lot of inspiration!
I hope to meet you all there :)
