Maja Design September Mood Board Challenge!

Hello, crafty friends! It's already the beginning of September. I can't believe it. The days are gradually getting shorter again, children are back in school, and pumpkins spice lattes are back.  

It's also time to unveil Maja Design's September Mood Board Challenge! Isn't the board beautiful this month? It truly captures the essence of the season.      

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. 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 January 25th.
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, 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 picture 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.

Below are a few more photos of my take on the mood board featuring Maja Design's Enjoying the Outdoors and Fika paper collections. The bunches of grapes are stamped and water colored. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! It's time to turn the challenge over to you. I'm so excited to see your interpretation of the mood board! Wishing you autumn days filled with sunshine and happiness!
