Maja Design October Mood Board Challenge!

Hello, my friends, and happy October! I hope this post finds you well. Has your weather started to turn a little chill in the evening? We don't have that yet in Charleston, but it's still autumn, one of my favorite times of year. I adore the rich, vibrant hues of this season. My husband and I just returned from a holiday in the mountains, where the sights (and flavors) of  fall are in full swing. We had the best time, and I sampled my very first pumpkin treat of the season!  


It's also time for Maja Design's newest Mood Board Challenge! You'll find the inspiration board below, along with all of the details for playing along with the challenge.    

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 color scheme.
We will pick a winner and present it on the Maja Design blog on December 26th.
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. 

I used two of Maja Design's collections to bring my project to life; Denim & Friends and Vintage Autumn Basics (for the handmade flowers). I'm always impressed with how easily the different paper collections work together. Below are some close up photos of the details.
