I keep a written journal and a visual journal. I was however horrified to discover today that I had not made an entry in my visual journal all year. I did not expect that at all. I packed a basket full of collage materials, glue, scissors and crayons and went out into the sunshine.
I covered a piece of black cardboard with season inspired images and motivational words. As this particular visual board is about keeping me working on my dreams, I added an envelope in which to tuck notes outlining my actions and successes. I used photos from magazines as well as silk flowers, leaves and stickers from cheap shops and craft suppliers.
This will go on the wall in my studio.
5 ideas for keeping a visual journal or dream board
2. Or materials from craft shops like these coloured leaves glued onto a simple painted background.
3. Believe in my dreams - silk flowers and transfer flowers.
4. Paper cutouts work well. The word journey here is cut out from a colour copy of a street directory map.
5. The visual journal gives you the chance to experiment and explore. No creative talent is needed. This is a free space to play and feel free. Cheap paints work just fine in a sketch book.
Just be yourself.
