Monday Mojo is a weekly series bringing you ideas and inspiration for your scrapbooking and papercrafting projects. On the first Monday of each month, I will post a roundup of some of my favorite Pinterest finds. Included will be a color scheme, page or card sketch, handmade embellishment idea, artsy technique, and topic prompt. Use as many as you like to inspire your month of crafting!
Hello again, and welcome back to Monday Mojo 2015! This month I’ve pulled together what I think is some fabulous inspiration for your scrapbooking. Let’s take a look:
1. Color Scheme
January’s color scheme is from a new-to-me blog called Style Court. Apparently, the picture above shows actual paint chips from the year 1807. It’s striking to me how relevant these colors are today, and I think they make a truly gorgeous palette for winter scrapbooking.
This month’s sketch is actually the current challenge from Stuck?! Sketches. If you play along and post your entry by January 29, you could win a prize from one of their sponsors – Big Picture Classes or ScrapMatts. I know I’ll be trying it out – how about you?
Wow – isn’t this embellishment cluster gorgeous? I could look at it all day. This piece of super-charged inspiration comes from a French blog, Les Creations, and boy, am I a new fan and follower! Hers is apparently a scraplift, and I can’t wait to follow suit!
I picked this month’s technique because I think it’s such a unique and creative idea. I know I have memories of several places we’ve lived or visited, and it would be so cool to document them this way. This idea is from the Journal Craft Inspiration Blog, which is full of lots of equally awesome ideas.
For 2015, I thought it’d be great to have lots of choices of topics instead of only one, and I was not disappointed when I began to search for them. This list of prompts comes from the the Thistle Dew Blog. They have lists like this for every month of the year, so you may be seeing more of these in the future.
So there you go – mojo for the whole month of January. I’d love to see any projects you create using the prompts! Share them in our brand new Facebook group. I’d like to choose some to feature here on the old blog, too, so let me know if you’d be interested in seeing your work featured here.
