Jot Magazine April Mood Board

I love the beginning of the month. It brings a fresh start to my goals, as well as a new mood board at the Jot Magazine blog. This month's board is simply stunning.

These colors are just what I love to use in my daily life anyway, so my layout came together quite quickly. 

"Watching" supplies | Paper: Bazzill Basics (cardstock), Studio Calico (pink, birds and red), Crate Paper (floral), October Afternoon (feathers); tags: Crate Paper; transparency: Studio Calico (bird); stamps: Elle's Studio; stickers: Studio Calico (hearts); thread: Stampin' Up!; kits: Arendal scrapbook kit and Brimfield scrapbook kit from Studio Calico. 

I recently picked up the Arendal and Brimfield scrapbook kits in the Studio Calico last call sale, and as soon as I saw the bird print in the Brimfield kit, I knew that I wanted to use it for this photo. The colors used in the bird patterned paper matched with the mood board perfectly, so I pulled other patterned papers that would match those colors, all with various patterns. I also grabbed my Crate Paper Wonder stash, because I knew the colors would line up, and the childlike sentiments would work for what I was documenting.  

You know that piece of patterned paper in your stash that you just keep using over and over again? Well, that is this single piece of feather patterned October Afternoon paper from the Daily Flash- Girl Talk collection. I have cut feathers out of it maybe a dozen times, and I still love using it on my pages.

All together, I loved this mood board, and loved creating this layout. Be sure to link up your creation inspired by the mood board to the mood board post by the end of the month for a chance to win an awesome prize!
