What is this Challenge?
A challenge calling you to host a planning party for 2020 goals and dreams.
There’s something magical when two or more people gather to dream big, encourage one another, and brainstorm together. It all started when my friends would come over to do creative work. Relaxing music would be playing in the background and candles infused the room with a sweet aroma as we envisioned what our goals were and cast our dreams out loud. We’d each have our laptop and notebook to not only work on our own creative endeavors but to also doodle down our intentions and visions for the future. Our brainstorming led us to use Milanote to create captivating mood boards to better represent our dreams.
How to Start:
Before you start on your visual moodboard you’ll need to do some brainstorming & reflecting. To help you get started on planning your goals and dream life, we created a pdf you can print out OR you can upload it to Milanote and do it digitally.
1. Sign Up for Milanote :
Milanote is a tool for organizing your ideas and projects into visual boards. We personally use It to organize all our work files and collaborate with our team but we love the flexibility to create anything on it. We recommend you work on your desktops for this project.
First, create your free Milanote Account and create a board called “2020 Dream Life.”
2. Create Your Board :
Imagine a board like a computer folder. You can organize all sorts of things within boards. For this project, we’re going to create one called, “Dream Life 2020.”
3. Add Images :
We recommend you spend some time on Pinterest and collect images that represent your vision for 2020, however you can also upload images from your computer.
To add images from Pinterest, simply copy/paste the images to your Milanote Board. To upload images from your computer, use the toolbar to the left and click “Add Image.”
4. Add Text :
If you want to add some text to your moodboard there are two ways to do it. The first is using the toolbar on Milanote, and the second is creating words in another app and uploading them as a transparent png.
5. Import the Journal :
Along with the pdf version of the Journal, we uploaded images as well so you can import them in Milanote and do it digitally! Here’s a quick tutorial:
