1) Collect your supplies:

  • Visual materials you can cut up (consider magazines, catalogs, photos, and printouts from digital media, including Pinterest)
  • Scissors
  • Gluestick or other adhesive
  • Markers, pens, stamps, or other art supplies
  • Poster board
  • A frame for your completed board (optional)

2) Start snipping. Trust your eye and your gut. Grab words, images, and phrases that speak to you. An image might represent a big-picture goal or simply capture the way you want your life to feel.

3) Can’t do it in a single session?  Collect and store your snippets in a file folder or box until you’re ready to start assembling them.

4) Find a space where you can spread out and your board-assembly process won’t be disturbed: A table, desk, or floor in a non-breezy room where you can shut the door would be ideal. Listen to some inspiring music while you work.

5) Make it a party! Don’t like working alone? Invite a friend or two to join you. You can share materials and admire each other’s progress.

6) Get artistic. Arrange, edit, add, embellish, experiment. Glue stuff down once you’re happy with the composition and the central messages.

7) Find a place to hang your board where you’ll see it often. Consider taking a photo of it with your smartphone so you can carry your visual inspiration with you and print or post mini-copies.

  1. The Vision Board can have a real purpose. A board with cut outs of “this is how I’d like my life to be” is a life changer. If we look at it every day and see the “new me” –the person I’d like to be–our lives and activities fall in line with the vision of what we’ve posted, what we want. Way more than an art project, I found it deeply personal. .. when I wanted to change the course of my life–to create this future me and future life–the vision board seemed to program my subconscious to do what I needed to do to get there. It allowed my life to change to a future I wanted but didn’t know how to get there.
