Hello MajaDesign fans! Welcome to the last mood board challenge of 2019!

This time it is a double one which mean you will have a little bit of extra time to be creative. We have made this mood board with the inspiration from the new collection “Holiday in the Alps” but if you have some other MajaDesign sheets you find will work it’s of course totaly fine to use them! We can’t wait to see some winterly, crispy creations for this one…

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 truly believe in creativity and art at Maja Design and you are free to interpret the Mood board 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. You can use all of the colors, or only one of them – that’s up to you.

How to participate?

♥ Create anything you like – a layout, a card, something altered or maybe a canvas. Use MajaDesign papers primarily!

♥ Take a nice picture of it and send it to moodboard@majadesign.nu. 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.

♥ 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, thank you.

♥ 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 on the 28th, at the MajaDesign blog. The winner will be sent one collection by their choice*, and also a digital Winner’s Badge to use and brag with.

*Note that we have run out of a few sheets of some of our older collections (e.g. the Sofiero collection) We will contact you if this applies to your chosen collection.

We need your entry by the 23th of  December at the latest.

 

Here are some lovely inspiration from The Best Creative Team:

October Mood Board challenge

Hello MajaDesign followers!

It’s time for a new Mood Board.
October is my favourite month of the year. Perhaps it is because the lack of light makes it okey to stay inside doing things just because you love doing them. The fall season seems to offer more “slow time”. Or maybe it’s because fall season bring out some of my favourite colors (like the ones in this mood board). Or maybe it is just because it’s my birthday month and I get to enjoy having my family over for dinner. However; it is a wonderful time of the year.

What do you like about October? Join in for this Mood Board challenge and show us.

Hi dear MajaDesign followers!

It is almost the end of September, which means it’s time to reveal the winner of this month’s Mood Board.
Fall season here at my place on the Globe means shorter days and chilly weather, which gives you the perfect opportunity to just stay inside and enjoy some lovely craftwork. That is what I will be looking forward to now when the Summer officially is over for this time…

A little reminder of what the Mood Board looked like:

Here are the lovely entries for September:

Made by Angelica Grosser from Sweden

Made by Kethy Nordström from Sweden

Made by Kristina Peshko from Russia

Made by Marlies van Es from The Netherlnds

Made by Natalie Grantham from the UK

And the lucky winner is…

Marlies van Es from The Netherlands!!!
Congratulations Marlies! We think you captured both the colours and the feel of the mood board in a great way ♥

This is Marlies words about her lovely card:
“I was inspired by the colours, the words last of Summer, trees, outdoors and cozy. The two little mice are enjoying the last of the warm Summer days before going into their warm and cozy home.
The papers I used are Walking in the forrest. The image is a stamp I coloured with distress ink. “

Thank you to all the participants! You’ve all done a great job ♥  and we hope to see you back for the October challenge, wich will be published on the 1st of October.
