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.

Here’s a hang tag made from the strawberry picture!

Whole punch the top and hang from a bottle of wine or tie to a package with a pretty ribbon!

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

I want to see what inspires you!

CONTEST

1-800-Flowers is having a contest right now to see which arrangement you “LIKE’ the most on Facebook.

Now there are a lot more options to choose from, and you can “LIKE” the one you really “LIKE”, but the winner will choose from the 3 shown above.  Make sense?
