Autumn Moodboard Scrapbooking Inspiration with Cocoa Vanilla Studio Heart & Home

Sunday 22 October 2023


Do you love or loath moodboards? I love them but I know some people struggle to interpret them. I tackle them by making a list of all the things I see and then I try to incorporate as many of them as possible into my layout.

For the beautiful October moodboard set by Sophie, this is the list I made: acorns, check print, web, leaves, wooden round, circle shape, flowers, words (script font and regular), knitted yarn/wool, pumpkins, woodgrain, the colours (green, orange blue, brown, pink, peach, yellow), Autumn theme. That’s a long list!

I was mostly inspired by the central photo of the wooden round. I used the A5 paper stack sheet of woodgrain paper and cut out the largest circle possible. I distressed the edges. I mounted my photo onto a check print.  I arranged my photo and Floral Ephemera to the right of the circle together with a Ephemera frame. The frame has acorns on it. I arranged all these elements as per the central photo of the wooden round, together with my title too over on the left. So far I’d incorporated: acorns, check print, leaves, wooden round, circle shape, flowers, words, woodgrain, the colours and an Autumn theme. Lots of boxes ticked there!

I added some ink under the area where the flowers would sit. I used a peach shade and then added some darker ink splatters over this area. 

I wanted to incorporate the knitted yarn so took some white embroidery thread and cut three long lengths. I then plaited these and make a piece long enough to go around the edge of my wooden round. I just stuck it in place. I also added a doily under the wooden round, which could (at a stretch) represent the web on the moodboard. So now I could also tick off: web and knitted yarn. That’s pretty much everything except the pumpkins.

I added a few more fussy cut acorns, handwrote my journaling, and added some puffy heart stickers. I also created a little torn area on the left side of the layout backed with patterned paper, to balance out the very large cluster that was over to the right side.

So I think I nailed the moodboard and I hope that you have enjoyed seeing how I tackle a moodboard!

Happy scrapping
