Today I posted a video about the creative process for anyone who wants to be creative or grow creatively. I also shared my mood-board flip-through of the first challenge we had over in the CLUB.
So, if you haven't joined up yet, you can still do so by visiting our website and following the steps outlined for you there. Click here to go to the website.
You can watch the video where I talk about the Creative Process and give you a flip through of my moodboard here:
Here are some close-ups of my moodboard:
STEP BY STEP:
Here is my step by step for the textured background I created...I am after all a
Mixed Media Artist, so I need to add some paint to my projects.
That was the messy bit. Now for the paper elements.
I cut the elements I liked from the Leef Magazine.
I glued it to white cardstock to make my elements more sturdy and "Scrapbook"-like.
Next I started creating my flips and adhered them to the base with double sided tape.
I didn't follow any specific pattern.
I let the project lead me to where it wanted to go. That was the most fun part.
MATERIALS USED IN THIS PROJECT:
My base for the mixed media textured layer: a sheet of A4 craft paper
My base for the magazine elements: 160gsm white cardstock
My base for the moodboard: 240 gsm white cardstock and A4 chipboard sheet
Magazine cuts from the Leef Magazine
Adhesives: Craft glue, Pritt Stick and double sided tape
Vegas gold All purpose ink
In the end it felt more like a mini little "scrapbook" but it is still my version
of a moodboard. A little bit of me in layers.
Some more of the girls in the club wanted me to showcase their own efforts here too, so I selected two more that show how they used the #Print&Play elements from the #LoveDayCollection in their process and here they are. Maybe next time your work can show up here too. :) :
So how would you interpret a mood-board and what would it look like?
Use the elements you have around you. Grab a glue stick and your scissors and get creative!
Don't forget to visit the website to join the club.
See you there!
