How to Create a Digital Vision Board with PicMonkey

I'm been rocking my 2013 digital board for the past two years. I skipped last year. Procrastination won. When I sat down to create one for 2015, I found my old favorite O Dream Board had disappeared so I created a version using PicMonkey.

Creating a vision board allows me to keep my eye on the prize and allow positive images of what I want flowing through my head. It's not magic. There's work involved but putting it out there for the universe to see doesn't hurt. 

"When you want something all the universe conspires in helping you achieve it." - The Alchemist (Paulo Cuehlo)

If you spend a great deal of time in front of a computer, having a digital board to look at on your phone, computer, or tablet makes it easy to keep goals and general wants for the new year close at hand.

Step 1: Find images

If you've already created a paper version of your vision board, no need to go searching around for new images. You can simply snap a photo of the entire thing. Otherwise, find images that match your goals. Save them to a folder so you'll have them all together.

Step 2: Create the design

Use the design feature in Picmonkey to create a frame. Size and orientation are up to you. I liked my O Dream Board so I tried my best to recreate it. I used a 4x6 canvas and then rotated it to be horizontal. You can add a boarder and a cork board texture too. Again, copying the 2013 version.

Step 3: Upload images

To upload images to the board. Click the butterfly (overlays) and then add your own. You can now add the pictures from Step 1. You can increase / decrease, rotate, and move pictures forward or backward to you liking. You can right inspirational quotes or power words too simply by clicking on T (text).

Step 4: Save

The most important step. Save your work and use it as a screensaver. You can print a copy for your bag or tuck one into a planner too.

Happy New Year! See you guys in 2015.
