To start out 2013 I really wanted to try making a vision board. My daughter, Kelsey home from college and I needed a fun project to inspire us for the new year. We each made something. I made a vision board with images symbolizing hopes and dreams for the future. Goals, intentions, whatever you want to call it.
To make a Vision Board all you need is some magazines, a posterboard, and rubber cement, or “Yes” Glue. Glue Sticks tend to wrinkle the paper. Start looking through magazines and pull or cut out pictures that you like. Don’t think about design or anything specific, just tear out some pictures, words, symbols, whatever catches your eye. Once you have a big pile of images, start laying them out on your board and glue the parts and pieces down. You will find you have layers of words and images. You may need to type some words and find some images on the computer.
According to my cousin, Creative Coach – Carol Harrison, she made a vision book in 2012 with 50 pages of intentions for the future. Within one year 45 of those intentions (goals) came true. Creative people prefer the word “Intention”, it’s less stressful.
