Jot Magazine's August 2015 Mood Board Challenge

If you asked me what my favourite colour was
I would reply "all of them".
Because it's true.
I love colour.
But secretly my favourite has always been blue.

August 2015 - by Amanda copy

This month's mood board challenge at Jot Magazine made me smile.
Loved all the shades and tones of blue that Amanda had collected
And knew I wanted to keep to the feel of the mood board
So started with a wash of blues.

The rest was as easy as telling a story…

It certainly threw me.
I even had to pay for some help.

But the end result worked and I sighed when it was done.

Make sure you see what the rest of the Design Team (and guests) created.
