Have you read part 1 yet? If not, go ahead and read that part first as it sets up the thinking behind the vision board process.
Today we’re talking nuts and bolts.
What do you need to make your vision board?
- A2 cardstock
- Glue stick
- Prestik/ washi tape
- Markers/ glitter (optional)
(cheapest craft ever!)
How do you do it?
- Page through old or new magazines and catalogues to find words, phrases, pictures that “speak” to you.
- Look through birthday cards, scraps of paper you may have torn out before, photos that mean something to you. The idea is to collect as much as possible in this initial stage.
- Cut out the words and images, and arrange them on the cardstock.
- Are there some that you feel don’t fit? Toss them.
- Are there other areas you feel are not represented but are important to you? Look through those magazines again, google for other images, find them.
- When your arrangement of words and images feels right, use the glue stick to glue it all down. If you have some heavier items (shells, etc.), you may need some craft glue.
And when you’re done sticking and pasting…
Find a suitable spot in your home where you will see it daily. When I had a business board, I stuck it up above my desk. I used to keep my big vision board on the back of our bedroom door.
My A2 posters have always stuck quite comfortably with Prestik. Please will someone – Laura? – tell me what the rest of the world calls Prestik? Dion tells me in his day (!) Zimbabweans called it Stickistuff. If you prefer, why not make a washi tape frame around your board?
Be inspired and enjoy the process.
I’ll show you my completed one when I do my the end of the month goals post.
