My daughter the art student (soon to be my daughter the graduated artist) has taught me a few things about design. The best tip she gave me to date was to create a Mood Board. Take photos, images that speak to you, mean something to you and put them on a board (virtual board) and refer to that as you create your designs. Each photo has a balance of colors that you can transfer to your designs.
This time of year it’s fun to design for Valentine’s Day. And what better inspiration for a Mood Board than flower arrangements? I hit the site 1-800-Flowers and found some color combinations that I LURVED. From those I created this:
From that I can create a color palette that is perfect for ME.

Now I have a chance for you to win one of these 3 bouquets shown here!
