Vision Board Workshop - February 15 - San Jose, California



Sunday, February 15, 2014

11am - 1:30pm
A
Work of Heart, San Jose, California
 

This workshop will provide a peaceful space to create your vision board for the year. We will explore the role of vision boards in goal setting and discuss how journaling can support you in the process! I will guide you through a series of steps that I have learned over years of creating vision boards of my own.  You will be given time to select images and create a vision board of your own.

I will also give you the opportunity to practice a valuable journaling process to help you capture any inspired ideas that might lead you to your goal. I call this process "Idea catching" and I will share with you the process of capturing your inspired actions in an idea journal.  This journal is unique in that it holds every wild idea, clue, phone number, map, and quote that will lead you to your goal. These journals have been extremely powerful in capturing inspired actions that result from focusing on my vision boards and has lead me to solutions and surprising results. 

With your Vision Board and Idea Catcher, you will have everything you need to creative fabulous year!

 

Workshop Schedule:

Choosing Images for your Vision Board
In this portion of the workshop we will look at the best ways to collect and use images for your vision board. You will have time to pull images that inspire you. Feel free to bring images you have collected before the workshop. The goal will be to find images that represent the essence of what you want to experience this year.

Arranging Images  on your Board
Over the years I've noticed that there are several ways to arrange images on your board to inspire maximum inspiration. We will explore some ways to arrange your images on your vision board based on your fundamental desires.

Keeping your vision board active
Keeping the visions on the vision board active and present for you, will help you to make key choices to bring them to fruition. 



What to Bring:
  • Image of you or something that represents you
  • Images that inspire you (optional)
  • Magazines (optional)

Favorite Art Things #6: Stamps


Favorite Art Things

Stamps



Feathers, Birds and Date Stamps 

Inkadinlkado Feather Stamps
Stampabilities Bird Stamps
Stampabilities Months of the Year Stamps

These are my all time favorite stamps. I use them in almost all of my art work. I like stamps that give me a starting point to create but allow me the freedom to make it my own. These feathers and birds give just enough shape to leave an impression but also allows me to add curves and details that are unique to my style. 

The date stamps are a complete find. I use them to quickly establish pages for my weekly journal.
