How to Create a Digital Mood Board

Quite often I’m asked how to create a mood board/ collage for a blog post. I always suggest using an editor like Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, and grabbing clean photos with white backgrounds. (I’m using Photoshop CS6 in the video).

Instead of typing a ridiculously long tutorial, I thought it’d be much easier for me to just show you how I make them. I realize that there are so many different ways to create these, but this is just my approach. I had fun creating this video- even though I must admit it was very challenging to not use my shortcut keys! You can create these little mood boards for your own blog or pinterest board. Get creative!

Let me know what you think, I plan to make more of these videos for the new blog. Enjoy ;)

    awesome! I like the way you did this and also the fact that you used a video, since a mood board is so visual — I wanted to do a mood board forever on my blog but didn’t quite know where to start. thanks so much for including this!

    I’ve used Photoshop a lot…but I’ve never pieced together these elements in creating an actual moodboard in my head. Thanks!! Here’s to making even better websites and graphic awesomeness. =D
