The size of your vision board is as important as every other aspect of your vision board. I bring this up because there are many places in your home that you can choose where you may want to display your awesome artwork.
Design

How would you like your vision board to look? Would you like to have a stylish vision board with amazing inspirational words, quotes, images etc. that you would love looking at time and time again? Keep in mind, you will be looking at your vision boards frequently so why not design it to your liking? There are many creative things out there that you can use to make your vision board pop! Just to name a few, pebbles, glass, leaves, designer pins and a lot more. Use that creative mind of yours to make it look fabulous. You won’t regret it!

Organization

When I say organize, I don’t mean you should be stressed out about the layout of your vision boards being perfect. Hell, even my first vision board is not as organize as I would like, but if you were to ask me to explain it to you, I would walk you through it step by step and tell you all the reasons why I choose the words and pictures. So, if you can understand what you have created, then you’re good to go. But keep in mind, if you are planning on displaying your work, you might want to organize it so others may be able to understand what you’re trying to accomplish.

 

Inspiration

Vision Board
Remember, the idea of a vision board is to inspire you. So while you are cutting out your images, and words ask yourself these simple questions: What does the image or word mean to me? What will I gain by including it on my vision board? How does the word or image make me feel? If you can answer all three of these questions and the answers are satisfactory to you, then by all means, add it to your pile that says REALITY and if it doesn’t I hope you have a bin that’s labeled TRASH. However, if you do decide to use the word but it does not belong to your current category of a vision board, add it to your FUTURE USE container. You never want to throw anything that you may want to use thinking you might come across that image or word again, because trust me, the time you may need it, you may not find it.
Sources of inspiration
 Magazines- you can find a lot of inspirational words, quotes, and images in a magazine. Don’t forget, the magazine was and still is the source of vision boards inspirations.

 Google- If you’re looking for a specific image, quote, or an image on a specific topic you can easily use Google Image Search to find what you’re looking for.

 Pinterest- Pinterest has an extensive amount of information on its site, all you ned to do is search for what you’re looking for and just like that *snap fingers* you have tons of choices.

 Postcards- If you love traveling or would like to travel like me, then postcards would be a great addition to your vision board. Heck, you can create a vision board with postcards alone (I just might do that). It will serve as a wonderful reminder as to where you have been, or where you want to go.

 Photographs- Photographs are amazing. They tell a story of what the person was doing or feeling at the time. the unsuspected ones are the best. I am sure there are plenty of unique pictures in your family album, why don’t you take them out of that dark sticky album and let them grace your wall on your vision board? I can honestly say that you won’t regret it!

Congratulations! You have master the art of creating successful vision boards. The last step to creating a vision board is making it a reality. It’s not going to be easy, but we are not going to let that stop us from accomplishing our dreams. Remember that can-do attitude I spoke of earlier? This is where that comes in. Take the first step in making your dreams a reality.
