Each year, around 80 million Americans travel abroad.
With plane fares cheaper than ever before, visiting your dream destination is a possibility.
But, before you go, why not come up with a moodboard to figure out what you want to do on your trip?
Using a moodboard is the best way to showcase your idea. Here is how to make a moodboard!
1. Where Will You Showcase Your Moodboard?
Before you even set pictures to moodboard, you need to figure out where you will showcase it.
For example, will you cover your entire refrigerator to keep you on track to save money for this special trip?
Will you create a huge moodboard wall in your study, where you’ll plan the trip? Or, would you prefer to create a moodboard in a bullet journal or notebook?
Make your decision based on which will bring you more joy. Do you want to go big and bold or small, neat and transportable?
2. Find Your Medium
The next step is to gather your inspiration. Are you going to print images off from the internet (in which case Pinterest is a great place to start)? Or, are you going to pick up your pencils and draw?
A common way of creating a moodboard is by gathering many old magazines, newspapers and travel brochures together and cutting out inspiring images.
If you’re using this method, start with a pair of scissors and begin cutting out every image which inspires you.
When you have all of your creative information in one place, you’ll know exactly what you want from your holiday and will be able to express this to others too.
3. Stick with a Theme
When creating a travel moodboard, it can be easy to get pulled into the wonderful world of travel inspiration.
But, after you’ve had fun cutting out every single picture you like, it’s time to organize them! During this phase, you need to keep your theme in mind.
If you’re creating a moodboard about Italy, make sure you don’t slip any Thai temples in there. Although they’re extremely beautiful, you won’t find any in Rome.
By sticking with a theme, you’ll be able to communicate your vision much more easily with your travel companions.
4. Don’t be Afraid to Incorporate Words
When we think of moodboards, we often think of images. Do something unexpected and communicate with a few words.
If Italy is your theme, incorporating beautifully written Italian phrases will break up the images and give the eye something else to focus on.
You may also want to include news clippings if you’ve read something interesting about the country you want to remember.
