Jot Magazine is a new free online scrapbooking magazine. I discovered Jot very recently, right as they were getting ready to publish their second issue and let me tell you, I was blown away when I finally sat down to look through the magazine. Amazing. I tell you what, every project was beautiful and on trend. LOVED it.
I found Jot when I stumbled upon their blog through someone else's link and I was very impressed. One of their blog features is a monthly mood board challenge and I jumped right in to participate.
This is the first time I have participated in a mood board challenge. I usually find these sorts of challenges overwhelming because there are so many details that have to be factored in. Or more accurately, I find them intimidating because I always feel as if I could never come up with a layout as fantastic as the examples given. I know, bad attitude....but I obviously got over myself this time and gave it a go and LOVING how it turned out. And that it what challenges are all about anyway, pushing yourself outside your comfort zone.
Here are some closeups....
All products used on this layout, except for the ribbon, were from the Citrus Twist September kit :-).
