I went to the craft store yesterday and I’m amazed that I left minus only $30.00. I am like a kid in a candy store & it is so hard to choose! I left with some new paint, papers, foam board, fat quarters and stickers (it was a good sale!).
I needed to go because I’m working on some journal totes and needed interfacing
And I also wanted to work on a Dream Board, often called Vision Boards. I have done these for years but can never get mine looking like those that I’ve seen as examples. I can’t clutter my board ~ I suppose because my dream is simplicity. I did add some “clutter” through painting the background first. Well, painting sounds like I’m a real artist ~ I scribbled some paint on the board.
I used oil pastels to draw a vase with a few flowers (because that’s all I can draw besides a coffee cup and lightbulb!) and put a “yoga” lady in the center to represent me as a balanced foundation ~ because this is a DREAM board.
My flowers had hope, imagine & dream.
I added a cross charm, some ribbon on the edges (not shown here), lots of glitter and a “balanced” definition. Also not shown here are the pictures and words around the center = my hopes for a future filled with abundance in authenticity, wholeness, dancing in the waves and creative endeavors.
