"Wishes and things"


Does this look familiar?
       ( esci=pesci ..."fish" in Italian.I could never find that fancy 'p')

Using a composition notebook as a canvas,I built my own journal/vision board.

Journal because it carries my thoughts,feelings,and memories.Vision board as it contains pictures and words that represent things that I wish for.

[vision board.a vision board is a collage of images,pictures and affirmations of your dreams and desires.it can also be called a dream board,treasure map,or vision map.] (..in case you didn't know)

It took me a sweaty three days of last July to create,as I really wanted it to be a complete image.I literally put my blood,sweat and tears into this.I'm happy with the results:).

(Excuse the little black arrows & black and yellow edited white out.Just bits I wish not to share!)
(Yes.The backs quite plain,I know.But I had no plans to over do it,you know?^^)

Now that it's a new year and I've yet to make a new one,I really must!Do I recommend you giving it a try?Highly.Not only is it a productive way to be creative and keep track of your wishes.Some vision boards are considered works of art and people actually have their personal boards sold at art galleries and placed in museums.Wonderful,yes?

Favorite line from 'Coraline' film...



  1. Cool! I always try to do clever things in my journal, but I seem to have a problem with filling up the ENTIRE page. It's crazy. I always just draw little things in one corner of the page. The only way I can fill it up is by writing all over it. I'm not very good at collaging either. I like yours though!
