Hi MajaDesign followers!

June is here and it is time for a new challenge. Firstly, I would like to thank all you fans out there for the great respons to our latest line “Denim & Girls” ♥ It has been a real hit! And of course we had to make this month’s mood board all about girls in jeans…
Do you have a favourite pair yourself? How do you want them, loose, tight or maybe ripped..?

Make sure to not miss the lovely inspiration from our talented Creative Team down below. Take a special look at Kerstin’s layout. She’s treasured her favourite jeans by actually using bits and pieces of them in the layout (the were so worn out that they fell a part).  If you want that denim-feel but don’t want to cut your jeans apart you can always use the denim-looking sheets of the Denim & Friends collection, they do match the Denim & Girls line perfectly. If you do not have the Denim & Girls papers yet, it’s no problem! You can use any other MajaDesign paper as long as you follow the color scheme. And this is what you have to play with:

 

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 som of our collections (e.g. the Sofiero collection) We will contact you if this applies to your chosen collection.

We need your entry by the 25th of June at the latest.

Hello dear MajaDesign friends!

Happy April! A new month means it’s time for a new challenge.
This mood board really appeals to me. The words “Have stories to tell not things to show” feels important these days when social media channels may drag you into to much comparison and show off. To live “In Real Life” is a skill worth practice, don’t you think? I also love the colors. From bluish turquise to greens, the warmth of the worn wood and the coffee-brown. And who wouldn’t wanna spend some time with a good friend drinking that delicious coffee…
How do you interpret this mood board? What does it tell you? Join in and show us.
