Last week I got an email from Claudia who runs the travel and design inspiration blog DesignClaud, asking me to take part in the premiere of her monthly link party DIY moodboard challenge. Of course I said yes! Who doesn't like an excuse to create a moodboard? Claudia (who is currently traveling the world for two years. Yes, I said two years!) and I have been travelling together virtually during the past weeks because we were both in Thailand at the same time. Unfortunately our plan to meet up for a coffee in Bangkok didn't work out because I was stuck in traffic and had to get to the train station earlier than expected. Nevertheless we exchanged messages and emails in the following weeks and gave each other tips on where to go and what to see, sometimes following in each other's steps.
For her first Link Party Claudia asked us to pick any landscape photo that we took and like and to create a color palette based on and a mood board inspired by that picture. Just having arrived back home from my vacation I didn't have to look far and picked an image of the beach and sea in Koh Phangan.
So this is what I came up with for Claudia's first moodboard challenge: An attempt to bring the sound of silence, the calm and peaceful atmosphere of the beach and the sea back home.
Please hop over to Claudia's post to find out more about the challenge, get some tips on how to create both a color palette and a moodboard, see what she and others came up with and be part of it as well if you like - there's still one week to link up your moodboard post, too!
