Hello Sign with Denise Boddey

Follow along with my as I design a plaque inspired by a mood board.

This month as part of the Denise Boddey design team we were challenged to work with a mood board. I have seen mood boards before but I have never worked using one as inspiration for a design.

The above mood board is what we were provided, aren’t the colors beautiful! You can see that I worked more with the three colors on the left side, the second image down from the top. These were colors of items I already had on hand.

Cricut Maker

To begin I used my Cricut Maker to cut out the word hello three times from blue cardstock. The reason for three times was to add some height to the word when placed on the plaque. Once cut out, I glued the three layers together.
