Journalling with Collage

At the beginning of this year, I made Vision Cards to express my business goals in a visual way. They sit on my desk and inspire me daily. They are such a joy to make that I've continued to explore other possibilities . I've made inspiration cards for others (and am considering this as an Etsy product) and now am throwing myself into a another daily project - creating a collage card a day.

It's been fun to watch the trends in my moods and interests. Each day I choose the images very intuitively, grabbing whatever captures my attention or imagination and seeing how it all come together. Through the process, I've started to see my collection of collage cards as a visual journal and am now collecting notes about my day on the flip side of the card.

The best part of this visual journal is that it guarantees me a little creative outlet each and every day.

Amazing project to commit to on a daily basis. Imagine what a season's worth will show you about your moods and themes!

ooohhh, jamie i love your cards. i love how they are all the same size and fit gorgeously in the white box. i love your sense of composition and how you stay intuitive and curious about trends that 'appear' in the images you gather.

every day!!! wow. i often find in my vision cards/boards that i run out of room and want to include so much more than i have space for..i just may join you in this practice. what are you using for the support (paper, board) ?

These are beautiful and so inspiring! I might try it myself, making mini collages as a reflection of my mood that day. That would be a fun addition to Project 365: your life in pictures and your life in collages :)
