This is my mood board to convey the psychology of colors. I chose my personal favorite and researched the positive and negative aspects of the color green. I credit the website 

http://www.colour-affects.co.uk/psychological-properties-of-colours for my text sources.

Since green is the color of life, I wanted my layout to reflect this with an upward direction in a vertical format.

My grid is based on the Golden Ratio, so one can almost see the spiral effect in the hierarchy of my images

However I felt this earlier rendition was too stiff in my opinion and rigid, so I worked on making my grid more subtle and loose. I then played with different hues and tones

And here is the final. I finally opted for the deeper background color to create more contrast and keep it lively.

 I had a great time loosening up and really enjoyed the process. I hope to incorporate mood boards in my design process overall.
