Midweek Mood: Soft Shapes

Its Hump Day and I’m coming to you with a little visual inspiration to get you through the rest of the week.  I don’t know about you but I have so much going on through the week that sometimes finding time to create can be tuff and sometimes finding inspiration can be even tougher. So if you’re at a stump and you feel like you are creatively exhausted just check back here every week for a new mood board and color palette to get your creative juices flowing again.

This week we are looking at soft shapes.  These aren’t your average triangles and squares!  I just love the pairing of quirky shapes and silhouettes with soft colorful hues.  There is something about adding weird shapes to a design that draws a little visual interest.  So why not have some fun with it?  Turn on some music and let loose and create whatever shapes come to mind, and then arrange them into a cool pattern or placement print. Once you have something you love try playing around and creating a few coordinate patterns or prints as well using the same color palette.

I've already been collecting lots of inspiration on Pinterest you can follow my board here! I’ll be sharing my designs later this week and I would love to see what you have come up with! If you would like to share we would love to see your work! Tag @risedesignandshine and #MidweekMood to be featured here on our blog!
