Today’s Soul Book video is about 3 things, decorating the Soul Book opening landing page, writing a letter to your future self, and creating a vision board translation tip in from last week’s vision board exercise.
The landing page is the very first page you see when you open your Soul Book. This is the area I like to put positive images, thoughts, and things that make me happy, so I can see them as soon as I open my Soul book! I also like to include an envelope on this landing page. In this envelope I put a letter written to my future self, to be opening the first day of next year. This letter is me telling my future self what an awesome year 2018 turned out to be. I love doing this practice, because then when the first day of the next year comes along, I get to open and read the letter and see just how much of my past thoughts actually came to fruition, and what I still need to be working on!
The last thing that I did for this spread was I went back to last week’s vision board, and asked myself a few questions about the type of woman that would lead a life that the photos and words that I selected embodied (AKA me, hopefully)! 🙂 I took the answers to these prompts and created a tip-in that is attached to my Soul Book’s landing page. I chose to do a tip-in because I wanted to be able to see my translation whenever I work on any of my future Soul Book pages, and having this mini page able to be tipped-in or out, will let me do just that!
- A sketch book to use as my Soul Book (Here is the link to the one I get every year)
- Magazines (I used mostly O magazines, because they are filled with positivity)
- Images printed from Pinterest
- Tombo permanent adhesive tape strip
- Uhu glue stick (my fave)
- Washi tape
- Watercolor paper
- Decorative craft paper
- Scissors, or course
- Envelope with a blank decorative card
- Various pens (completely optional, but excellent if you decide to do any doodling around any of your images)
The prompts I used were:
My Soul Book
healing, dealing, documenting,
creating, imagining, planning,
doodling, writing, meditating,
brainstorming, organizing, learning,
& anything else my creative little heart desires!
My Personal Vision
In her alone time, she…
With her sweetie, she…
With her soul sisters, she…
In her home, she…
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know in the comments section! I am always happy to be of help!!
Now it is your turn to get creating in your Soul Book!
Here is to having some fun!
