Last month, our assignment for One Little Word was to create a "vision board" inspired by our word. A "vision board" is, essentially, a visual intention -- a collection of images and words of what you'd like to invite into your life.
I have created many "vision boards" over the years -- in many forms. Scrapbook collections of images and phrases I particularly like. Bulletin boards of inspiring photos and quotes. Collages of ideas. (Before there was Pinterest. . . there were "vision boards!")
I had a great time with this project. I gathered some magazines and my scissors, and I let the images and words shout out at me. Then I mod-podged it all onto a 16 x 20 canvas from Michaels.
Here's what I ended up with (click the photo to see it even bigger):
The process was therapeutic. The just-looking (not reading). The cutting out. The deciding. The gluing-it-down.
I loved the whole "old-school" nature of the project.
And I love what surfaced in all that cutting and pasting.
