Sometimes, when uninspired, create inspiration! And that's what this week's project is all about.
I was scouring through my pinterest pins and then saw a picture of neatly arranged vintage items as a mood board. Then I remember where I've seen many of these: design and fashion magazines.
In short, they are neatly arranged objects (sometimes product placements) of thematically similar items that invoke a certain emotion, or express a certain message.
I really love vintage ephemeras and items. Therefore, this mood board is precisely inspired by those items.
Papers: Prima, Simple Stories
Embellishments: Tim Holtz, Prima
1) Keep them straight. Arrange things in a organised perpendicular manner. It is far easier to manipulate to achieve balance.
2) Forget symmetry. It would make the project tough to manage. Instead, focus on effective layerings and focal points instead.
3) Keep within the theme. That's what a mood board is. Keep both the colour and style variations of different elements to a minimum and that will ensure success.
4) Layer, layer, layer. Continue to maintain the modular nature of the focal points but don't forget to layer to break excessively separated elements: for instance, I used the brush to connect the top and bottom wooden panel and the layered the ephemera to connect the wooden panels to the stamped cloth image.
Thanks for reading, til next time!
