May challenge - be a light moodboard

Do you like Summer? It starts in June with a wonderful celebration, that is called Midsummer Night. We are very curious what kind of celebrations are there in your countries, to honor the very first day of Summer. Very old, pagan tradition is to make bonfires and in general to light a fire or some candles. Below you can see our newest moodboard - feel free to be inspired by anything below and join our challenge. And be a light for others <3


You can create anything you want - a tag, a layout, a card, an off-the-page project, a card, an ATC, an art-journal spread, a canvas and many more - just be inspired by our quote and put our challenge banner in your blog post showing your entry.


Here is an inspiration delivered by our amazing team (there are also a few video tutorials):




Hello Dear Creative Souls

Today I'll show you my May challenge project created for Mixed Media Place. I decided to interpret the challenge as a layout. Here is my creation.



Remember to scroll down, because I prepared a video for you.



First I chose a watercolor paper as a background. I have had fun with stencils and the beautiful texture paste from Prima. Then added some texture with art ingredients and the trim.



Then I made a mixture of gesso and water and add splashes. I have used also Mica Powder and acrylic paint for a little more sparkle et voila. I had so much fun!!!!

A Sea of Stars - Layout



This moodboard just shines with everything I love… the colours, the sentiment, the emotion… I have some picture left over from our holiday a couple of years a go of my son venturing down to the sea. He was so drawn to it. I knew that this photo would be perfect to reflect everything I love in life and everything I love in this board.



Beautiful Word Stickers and Elements from 7 Dots Studio, these are just the perfect accompaniment for artwork, offering contrast, style and dimension when propped up on a piece of chipboard.



Fun colours from Lindys, Art Alchemy and Izink, blend with water in places or add splatters. Of course, the layout wouldn’t be complete without some embellishments from Finnabairs new line!!


I have included a video of my creative process :)

My take on the moodboard is a layout created with the new 7 Dots collection papers - Fortune-teller - which i loved!! I used several embossed powders for the background among with heavy gesso over stencils, mists, powders, stamps and a lot of glitter.



I was inspired by the rusted colors of the flower in the moodboard which i also used, glitter, the general color pallete and the quote giving a willing message of believing in our dreams and manage to make them true! The female element is also strong again in my layout .

Hello!  I made a wall decoration. As a base I have used packaging from gypsum decorations. I have created on it a different texture, covered with black gesso and a little bit toned.

Our fantastic May moodboard inspired me to create fresh LO about myself.
For the background I used watercolor paper and made colour splashes with different sprays and alcohol  ink

All decorative elements painted with the same colors of sprays by LSG
