Hello!

Scandinavia is experiencing warmest Summer we’ve had for ages. That might not set you in the perfect mood for crafting but there will probably be a rainy day or two further on. Since this is a double month challenge you will have plently of time to make the deadline in the end of August. If you are new to our you will find the simple rules below. Don’t miss out! We would love to see how you interpret this Mood Board…

 

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 28th of August.

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

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.

♥ 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.

Hello! Nice to see you here today!
Lazy summer days are passing by here in Scandinavia right now. Life is more about spending time with family and friends and creating the memories to put in your scrap book later, when fall arrives, than it is about spending time in your craft room. A few of you did still manage to make some art for this month’s challenge and it’s time to announce the winner…

First a reminder of what the Mood board looked like:

 

And here are the entries:

Caroline van Sluis, The Netherlands

Karita Vainio – Finland

Marjut Laine, Finland

Nicole Lacoste, Canada

Nicolette Brik Netherlands

Vivi Thomsen, Denmark

 

And the winner is…

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! ♥

Maria Loijen, Netherlands
