Vision Boards always seem to have a bit of magic to them.
The way they are done makes thinking and getting in the way of the creative process less likely. You rip/tear/cut out pictures as quickly as possible. If you start to think about it, you rip faster. The idea is to find things that you are drawn to and not try to figure out why.
Then, just as quickly you throw them all down on paper/card stock/old cardboard in random fashion. How ever you are moved to do so.
Set them up and step back.
This is the moment of "magic" for me. I never quite know what they will come out to be. I imagine I'll have an idea but they are NEVER what I thought, thank goodness.
With 2012 a month in already, I thought it would be good to get a bit of Clarity. Vision. Inspiration.
My one vision board turned into four. Yes, four. Each one with its own distinct meaning.
I'm still pondering what they all mean...or how they may work in my life.
The added bonus is using all the superfluous catalogs that show up at my door. I feel a bit better about them when I can turn those catalogs into something that inspires me.
Have you tried vision boards before? Do you find they work for you? What other things do you do to find inspiration in your life?
