Hey there creatives! Rita Barakat here with a spin on a vision for ya! Every year I set goals for the new year and this year is no different except I decided to make a vision board, well my version of a vision board!   If you have never made a vision board more than likely  you can scour the internet and find all types of collages, pictures cut out of magazines, glued onto a larger sheet or board to make a vision.

How to Make a Vision Board! Shiny and New!

The pictures you pick represent your goals or vision for the future. I wanted to make mine a little prettier. (And a with a little more bling!) I broke down my goals into categories , gathered pictures or notes that would remind me of what they are and attached them to a bulletin board I redecorated.

My word for the year is “Shine” so I wanted to included that as well; right away I thought of using a little silver Deco Foil! I grabbed some iCraft Foam squares and large sheets of Sticky Dots too. I love these sheets for covering large surfaces and surfaces with lot of details, here’s why…

The large sheets have two sides of wax paper. the dots are so small even the tiniest details will pick up adhesive! They are perfect for letters, right? Peel one side off and place the letters (face down) I rubbed my finger over the top to make sure it attaches to the letters.

When I lift the letters the sticky dots are attached to them like tiny polka dots! Perfect!

I carefully flip those letters ove on the muted side of the Deco Foil.

Be sure to carefully lift those letter and they come out great!

I use the Foam dots on the back so they really pop on the page! This is so fun and easy anyone could do it! Do you make vision boards? Did you put your own twist on it? Did you use it all year long or was it for short term goals? I would love to see it! Leaves us a link if you have one!
