VISUAL ACTION PLAN, created in Procreate:

THE PROCESS OF CREATING IT IN PROCREATE:

Firstly, I typed out the action plan goals in Procreate, creating a grid background using one of the brush library tools.

Then I wrote out the word, ‘reflection’ repeatedly over a blue sky background.

I then copied the ‘reflection’ page, reduced the size of it, copied it several times and added them all together until it covered the whole ‘page’.

The word, ‘reflection’ covering the whole page then seemed a bit overcrowded, so I decided to just keep a strip of it on one side.

I then added a grid pattern randomly at the bottom and side of the page.

Lastly, I added splashes of bright paint in a free creative way, before re-adding the action plan goals on top of it.

Although I used a lot of layers in order to create the ‘collage’, using grids, bright paint splashes, and writing, I personally don’t think it’s too ‘busy’ for a visual diary entry. I love it.

THE REFLECTION PROCESS:

I created the above visual action plans after doing the following reflection:
