Challenge #110--Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of: Create Something Inspired By a MOOD BOARD...Midway

Hey folks! Welcome back to the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog! It is my fond hope that each of you and your own families are staying happy, safe, and well, wherever it is you live in this big wide world of ours.  
As mentioned in the previous post, I have been quite sick and as a result, posts were pushed back. While I had hoped to post this on Wednesday, I just didn't have the time or energy. I'm going rather slow and have so much on my list to catch up with. Thankfully, I managed to find the time today to present the midway for Challenge #110. Overall, this post is just four days late so not too bad in the grand scheme of things.

As we are a unique kind of challenge blog, it is important for you to understand how things work. Please be sure to check out the START POST FOUND HERE for the specific details related to this month's challenge, and you can find out all the general details you need to know in order to participate, by clicking on the 'Challenge Details' tab (located at the top of the blog). For your convenience, a summary of the most important rules can now be found in the right sidebar under the heading 'General Rules'.
Right now, it is time to continue with our midway. Here is a refresher of the details for our current twist:

Challenge #110

Anything Goes POSITIVE with the Opt. Twist of 

Design a Creation Inspired By


This year's goal is to take a look at the things around us that can inspire us in our creative journeys. As such, if you would like to participate in the optional twist this month, we want you to Design a Creation Inspired By a MOOD BOARD.
A mood board is a visual tool that allows a person to communicate design concepts and ideas. It is a collection of images, colours, textures, prints, fonts, and other design elements, all arranged to evoke a certain style or a particular feeling. What that ultimate style or feeling is, all depends on the project your are creating it for. In general, mood boards are used during the initial design process and can be used for a wide range of projects including creating a brand, designing a room, or putting together a collection of patterns. These are just a few ideas as to how mood boards are used. They can virtually assist you on any type of creative endeavour. Putting together a mood board can be an enjoyable and and innovative way to analyze your own unique personal style and bring your design concepts to life. In the process, it helps you to learn more about your likes and dislikes.
If you want to follow the optional twist this month, use a MOOD BOARD as the inspiration for your creation. You can use a mood board that you have designed yourself, one you find on the internet or you can use the one featured below for your inspiration. It is time to show the world how mood boards have inspired you in your creative journey.
