07/06/17 - July "Round Robin" Challenge

 The "Round Robin Challenge":
"There are teams of 4 people, one person for each week, similar to a relay race. The person assigned for week 1 in each group will start their team off with a layout depending on what the specs and twist will be. Then the following week, everyone assigned to week 2 will lift off their week 1 team member and so on. It's fun to see how a lift progresses from the first week to the fourth."
On this edition of "Round Robin" I was player #1 and we were assigned a "Mood Board" for our inspiration:
Though I know Mood Board Challenges are popular, I've never actually played along w/ them.
I was a little nervous, especially since I was the first one on my team.
I was mainly nervous because I tend to take challenges like this way to literal...which is why I never play along on my own.
But eventually I had to tell myself to stop over thinking it and just focus on what stood out to me and this is what I came up w/:
"Ginger Spice"

"Joseph wanted to lighten his dark hair; over the years it went from blonde to dark brown. He used a blonde boxed dye and I warned him it would lighten but not be blonde. This is what happened. He loves it! I love it and I jokingly call him Ginger Spice though he prefers Peter Pan. 6.18.17"

Can you figure out what I was inspired by?
I was inspired by the photo of the girl showing off her hair (style) and the photo of the wedding invitation in the shape of a large hexagon: thus I chose to scrap my son's (new) hair (color) and use hexagons as a design element.

Though it's a simple layout I actually really like it!
I guess I can handle mood boards after all...
Tell me, have you ever played along w/ a mood board?

  1. That's really cool! When I look at mood boards, I have a hard time seeing beyond the colors. I didn't even notice the hexagons. I'm hope you'll post what the rest of your team makes based off your layout.

  2. I agree with the above! You always have an awesome way of thinking outside the box. I would have totally gone for the colors too!

    Love your layout :)

  3. I loveeeeeeeeeeeee this! LOVING how you were inspired by the hair on the mood board!! And I loveeeeeeeeeee mood boards!!! They usually have great color schemes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
