I can see a little trend happening in the ol’ scrap room at the moment, big bold bright colours and lots of them. Perhaps it the summer heat or the vibrancy of a shiny bright new year but whatever it is my colour palette at the moment is decidedly peppy. So imagine my delight when checking out the newest of Jot Mag Mood Board challenges. It would seem that Kim and the Jot Girls are up for a bit of fun too and inviting us all to join the party. I adore the choice of colours here and all that lovely confetti going on, so originally I thought I’d go for something purple with lots of sparkly stuff to play off the confetti thing. Not only that but I love an excuse to get my favourite colour on a layout. I know some scrappers say its hard to work with but I just love it. When I went looking for a story however, I serendipitously had these photos and paper buttons out waiting on a layout. They’re from my sisters surprise baby shower and fit right in with the celebration theme bright pinks and blues became the order of the day. Hot pink or pink of any hue has long been a favourite of my favourite youngest sister and always makes me think of her. Not only is it a nod to her personality but I really think it brings out the lovely blues in her outfit and pops against the gorgeous green grass of the photo. The vibrant colours in my photos really demonstrate the rainbow of colour in the mood board but I couldn’t help add in that little ‘picture perfect’ embellishment to bring them all together in one spot.The other main element of this layout, the paper buttons, were a table decoration from the party and scattered around like confetti, so while not a literal interpretation of the confetti idea they certainly fit the bill. A little yellow twine helped tie them in nicely and add that extra zing. This was a really fun day and I love that the layout conveys that mood so well. I’d like to try using the same palette with some softer hues too and see what I can make of them, perhaps even use them all on the same layout. These Jot Mood boards are always so much fun and there are just so many directions they can take you in that it’s hard to just choose one.
