Design Tip You Need to Know
When making your vision board, consider the Rule of Thirds. The Rule of Thirds is a design technique that’s used in photography, graphic art, and painting. It’s an easy way to make a piece of art look dynamic and exciting. To use it, break up any composition into 3 smaller spaces. Use that space in your piece.
So rather than placing objects in the center, place your objects just off-set from the center. Like how I placed the embroidery floss in the images above!
Step 3: Create a Theme & Composition
Before you start to attach any of your images and other objects, consider where you want to place them and what you want the finished piece to look like. Move things around on the board until you find a composition that you love! Try using the Rule of Thirds during this process!
Also, fit items and images together so that they tell a story and all fit together.
Step 4: Make Your Vision Board
Making a vision board is a creative experience. So here are some ideas, but trying something new, breaking the rules, and making something you love is the best part of the process. Try to hold your goal and intention during the entire process of making your vision baord.
Here are some ideas on how to make your vision board:
+Start by attaching your embroidery floss. Wrap it around the board and attach the ends to the back side of the board, so they won’t show.
+Add your images underneath your embroidery floss or attach the images with washi tape or stickers.
+Layer faux flowers, affirmations, stickers and more into the board. Consider your composition during this process! The more unique materials you use, the more interesting your vision board will be to look at.
+Use a cute notecard to write a note to your future self. Or write a note about the goal you hope to achieve.
+Use your paint pen to add stars, hearts, sparkles, and embellishments in key places. This is a great way to add a finishing touch to your Vision Board.
+Hang your vision board in an intimate space where you can see it daily and reflect on your goals. Try to spend time looking at it and visualizing your goal.
+Change your vision board as you and your goals change. Remove outdated images and add new ones. Change your colors or your themes.
