You can create a vision board easily and display throughout the year to encourage and inspire you.  All you have to do is collect some favorite photos and quotes, and pick a color scheme.  Then, simply place those pictures in a template that you love, and whallah!

I used PicMonkey, my favorite photo editing program, to create my vision board for this year, and below I’ll show you how to it too!  Let’s get started on this meaningful project, shall we?

I’ve been preparing for Christmas over these last few weeks.  We’ve been enjoying lots of Christmasy date nights, and family activities.  Our tree is decorated, and we even have snow here in Michigan.

But, this year, these days leading up to Christmas has been filled with something even more exciting and powerful.  You see, this is my first time starting a new year with the PowerSheets Goal Planner.

The PowerSheets Goal Planner is the ultimate workbook for dreamers and schemers who are looking for simple strategies to help them turn their dreams into goals.  This special workbook helps you break down those goals into smaller to-do lists that you can work on daily, weekly, and monthly.

Throughout the last few days, I’ve been busily filling the beginning prep pages with thoughts, goals, and dreams for 2018.  It’s been an empowering and encouraging time, as I’ve been challenged to work through my feelings of guilt and inadequacy and replace them with hope and grace.

One of the projects to complete is a vision board.  I’d never created a vision board before, so I wasn’t quite sure where to start. Here are the steps I took to make the vision board of my dreams using Pinterest and PicMonkey….two of my favorite things!

Your Photos, In Print

1. Create a Pinterest Board

First, begin on Pinterest.  Collect photos, quotes, and articles that inspire you to have the best year of your life.

Do you hope to travel to new places, have a baby, buy a house, start a new job, etc?  Seach for photos of those things you most want to accomplish in the coming days and add them to your Pinterest board.

2. Collect Pictures & Quotes

Copy and Paste your favorite photos and quotes.  These will be the scenes you feature on your vision board.

3. Choose a Color Palette

Are there colors that “speak” to you?  Do you love bright colors like orange or fuschia?  Or are you more of a black and white, minimalistic kinda gal?

This year, I chose a color palette filled with my favorite pastel colors.  The color scheme of my vision board just simply makes me happy.  And, that’s exactly what your vision board should do for you too.

4. Go to PicMonkey.com

5. Click On ‘Design’ & Browse Templates

6. Search for ‘Vision Board’ & Choose A Template You Love

7. Begin Editing and Adding Your Favorite Photos & Quotes From Pinterest

Add your own photos by clicking on the square/section you want to change, and then click the drop-down box under ‘replace image’ in the Overlay Dashboard to the right.

Edit the layers of the template with the Layers Dashboard on the left side.  Rearranging the various components will keep your photos from overlapping each other.

If you make a mistake don’t worry.  Use the ‘undo’ button at the bottom of the page.  It looks like the backward arrow.

I uploaded the photos from my computer.  They are photos I found on Pinterest, and therefore are not my own…darn.  I wish they were!  I’m hoping I take pictures like these in the upcoming year.

Click the place you’d like to download your photos from….

then choose the photo you’d like to upload into the chosen box on your template.

8.  Edit the Script and Text with Your Own Favorite Quotes or Sayings

9. Export (AKA Save) Your Masterpiece

I always save any of my photos with wording on them as a ‘png’ file.  The wording just seems to be clearer than if it’s saved as a ‘jpg’.  Click the ‘jpg’ box to find the ‘png’ option.

10.  Share Your Vision Board With The World!!

I chose “Purpose” & “Simplicity” as my words for this year.  So, on my Vision Board, I used those words in the big box on the bottom of the template.

I’ve been sharing my vision board all over the place. I love it so much, and can’t wait to print it out and frame it!
