Mood Board October

Posted by Carita Ruckman

2 October, 2017 -

Hi there!

Here in Sweden the autumn has started, the trees are starting to be orange and yellow and it’s a real pleasure being outside enjoying it all. October has arrived..! ♥
So, let us share a lovely new mood board, in some more “autumly” colors – hoping to inspire you all:


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 October 30th.

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 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 Monday each month, at the Maja blog. The winner will be sent one collection by their choice, and also a digital Winner’s Badge to use and brag with.

We need your creation by October 26th at the latest.

Thank you & Good luck!

    Hej, har jag förstått det hela rätt att man kan delta i er moodboard även om man inte är med på sociala medier, dvs bara maila in foton till er? Med vänlig hälsning,

      Hej Susanne,

      Egentligen vill vi ju att man ska kunna dela moodboarden vidare, i någon form, men har man inga sociala medier så får vi väl istället hoppas på att du pratar med dina pysselvänner om den, och på så sätt uppfyller tävlingsvillkoren istället. Vi vill jättegärna se ditt bidrag såklart!

      Ha en fin dag!

      Mvh Camilla, MajaDesign
