Created A Vision Board {Blog Hop}

Last month I announced my word for the year: soar. I’m also apart of Ali Edwards’ One Little Word® Project, it is an awesome way to get monthly prompts and a community to help you interact with your word!

Speaking of our awesome community, Nikki arranged a blog hop for us. You can find out more details about me, if you are new. I blog about all of the random interests in my life, but crafty things have a special place in my heart.

Our prompt this month was to create a vision board. Basically, we cut up magazines for words/pictures with what “speaks to us” and paste it together. This becomes a visual reminder of what we are seeking right now.

Because of my hoarding behaviors I had tons of leftover free magazines so enter all the cutting and tearing. This was by far my favorite part. Simply the act of preparing for the project, day dreaming about possibilities was incredible!

I finally approached the assembly part…after starting a completely unrelated art journal project: a title page for Scripture art journaling.

Ugh my cut outs wouldn’t fit on my desk, so I had to move to the floor.

Then, I was stuck, I had no idea where to start. I tried to group the words and pictures.

I stared in frustration and then just decided to stop over thinking it, and just paste the things.

I had almost finished what I thought might be the background, and I felt no connection to this board. I thought about giving up last night, but I wanted to have something to share with you today!

So I picked up another stack of cuttings, more about specific goals versus just pictures of birds.

Surprisingly, this one just came together. There was so many more quotes and pictures, but it didn’t seem right to force them together. So I focused on the less is more. And, I was really satisfied when I was done! (Pro tip, take a picture of your layout, so you don’t stress when it comes time to move everything to add the adhesive).

There are so many more beautiful cuttings I want to use in future projects. Maybe I’ll make a separate board for each area of my goals, the sky is the limit. 🙂 I’ve fallen in love with a readily available medium to work with!

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
