Art Journaling Tip #158: Be Moody | A MSA Post

Art Journaling Tip #158 is a simple one. Use a mood board for inspiration. On those days where you are feeling a little mojo-less or just trying to think about how to pull an art journal page together, use a mood board. There are tons out there. All different kinds and themes. Pinterest has a ton of them for everything from corporate branding to weddings.
You can find boards based on a color palette:
pink, navy & gold

Boards focused on color & design:

For weddings:

Professional Mood Boards:

And for branding:

And even boards based on an interest/theme:

And if you can't find a moodboad that fits your personal style, you can make one yourself. You can layer a bunch of images on a canvas/page and leave them messy or haphazard, or frame them in boxes. If you want a quick and easy way to create your own moodboard, dive into a digi stash of templates and pull together a few images/colors that appeal to you.
So today, I'm sharing a moodboard I made and issuing a challenge. This board is based on Scrapbook Challenges sketch #402, and there are a variety of different images. There are several different ways you can use it as a jumping off point. You can focus on one or more of the colors, a pattern, an image or whatever else might inspire you. Then get out your supplies and create an art journal page!


Or as an alternate, create a mood board of your own for your next page and share it with us!
Have fun and be MOODY!
