Faber Castell came out with a Vision Board Kit recently and asked me to create something with it and then to blog about it on the Design Memory Craft blog (you can check that out HERE). So I made a board that would be inspiring to me yet useful and interactive.
One of my favorite things about this kit is that it comes with everything you need to get started creating and if you want to add in more things or use more products you can easily mix those in. I created this video showing step by step how I created the actual bulletin board and each of the pieces I added to it:
After making the board and inserting it into a frame I had at home I took the 6"x6" piece of printed paper with the flowers on it and decide I'd watercolor them in using the Grip markers that also come in the kit and some Gelatos that I already had. The Grip markers are waterbased and are perfect for scribbling out on a craft mat, adding water to, and then painting in the flowers on the paper. (And another cool thing about them is if they dry out you can dip them into water to reactivate them!)
I also used a stencil from the 101 Stencil Collection and both the Pearl and the Silver Texture Lux to add some texture and shine to the background.
I knew I wanted to tuck the other 6"x6" piece of paper behind the flower one so I wanted to keep it simple but meaningful and inspirational to me. I came up with the plan to just use a small tipped PITT Pen to write out the attributes of the Lord that began with each of the letters. I really enjoyed meditating on those and knowing I can pull it out and refer to it when I need it. I used the PITT Pen instead of the Grip marker that comes in the kit because it has a smaller nib that made it easier to write small with.
This kit comes with so many cute smaller pieces of paper and tags that are perfect for keeping my lists on, so I bundled them all together and put them on a ring so I could hang them on one of the pens that come in the kit .
I also used some of the banner and diecut pieces that come in the kit to tie in with one of my favorite quotes I had written on another card that came in the kit.
That verse in Ephesians has really been on my heart lately and I love how Jimmy put words to how I feel about it:
Yep, love that.
Don't you love that big, glittery hash tag!!! I knew that I wanted to use that on the frame and so I used my ScanNCut to cut out the word "inspire" out of Scor-Tape on cardstock and glittered it up to match.
This was such a fun project to do and I hope to keep using the board, adding to it, rearranging things, and continue to be inspired from it.
