Hello,
June is here and that means it’s time for a new Mood board!

For me this board is all about that lovely feeling of a perfect morning. What comes up in your mind? We would love to see your interpretation of the June Mood Board, so head for your craft stash and be creative. Send us your entry by July 8th and you have the chance to win a MajaDesign collection of your own choice.

This is how we use the mood boards:

Definition mood board – n

[a board used by designers on which samples of various colours and textures are mounted to help in deciding which elements complement each other]

We are using mood boards for our challenges. We truly believe in creativity and art at Maja Design. You are free to interpret the mood boards in any way you’d like. They are supposed to set you in an inspirational mood without too much controlling. We would like you to be inspired by the poems, words and photos. They are not given rules, they are just there as inspiration. However – we highly recommend you to follow the theme.. Feel free to use any Maja papers you’d like as long as they follow the colour scheme.

We will pick a winner and present it here on the blog on the 10th of July.

Have in mind that these challenges are a really great way for us to discover new talents and maybe some future Creative Team members…

How to participate?

♥ Create anything you’ll like – a layout, a card, something altered or maybe a canvas. Use Maja papers primarily! Take a nice picture of it and send it to moodboard@majadesign.nu. We also need to know your full name, address and a phone number. Please specify what collection you would like to win, if you are the lucky one. We will also want to know if you would like it in the size 12*12 or 6*6. Please send us the pictures in the size of 800 pixels on the width. We would be so grateful if you also could change the file name of the photo to your first and last name including your country.

♥ Feel free to send us more than one picture, from different angles or some close-ups – or why not more than one project?

♥ Publish the project/s on your blog (or/and any social media, e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest) with a link to our site. Please also add the image of the mood board.

♥ Feel free to combine your entry with other challenges.

♥ The winner will be revealed the last Tuesday each month, at the Maja blog. The winner will be sent one collection by their choice.

Hello! Happy to see you here today!

It’s time to announce the winner of this month’s challenge. But first I’m gonna talk just a little bit more about the weather (we Swedes are know to do that a lot – and it seems to be working to make weather wishes here 😉 ) In March I asked for some well needed rain… I actually think it rained all April… So for May I wished for the sun to be shining – believe it or not – we’ve had the hotest May since they starded measuring! So just a little humble wish from me… please, please let this weather stay all summer…

No more weather talk – back to more important stuff!
A Big thank you to this month’s participants  – it’s a pleasure to get to see your artwork! ♥

A little reminder of how the Mood board looked like:

You can use all the colours or just pick one or two. And of course, your piece should primary be made out of MajaDesign papers!

So… what comes up in your mind when we give you this?

April is here and it’s time for a new Mood board Challenge!

Finally the snow has released it’s grip of the Swedish west coast! It is still a bit cold but the temperature is slowly rising. Now I long for the smell and colours of spring flowers, for a cup of coffee on the porch and I even long for a spring rain…

Let yourself be inspired by the colours and the theme of this mood board and be creative. We would love to see what you come up with ♥
