“So… Everyone should have a bucket list. What’s on yours? For this assignment you should create a collage with AT LEAST four pictures of four different things you have on your bucket list. Add text to your picture of what or where it is. Then briefly tell us why it is on your bucket list.”
For my first visual assignment I’m creating a collage of my bucket list. I chose to do this assignment because this is personal to me, as well as being able to express my thoughts and ambitions it gives people a chance to be able to get me as well. Also I hope it can give others a desire to plan a few little things for their own bucket list.
I’ve always been one to want to plan my life out, however, not much really goes to plan… Ever since i can remember I’ve always made a bucket list! I’ve always had a million and one things i want to be before I die, I can sit here for hours and bore you telling them all. Personally, I am attracted to a bucket list, mainly because I’m obsessed with making lists, like to-do lists, shopping lists, just lists… But I’ve always liked having somethings visual to tick off, when i visit a Country that’s on my bucket list i can tick it off and it’s just such a good feeling, and it keeps you motivated to keep going through the bad times to get to the good times.
If you haven’t created a bucket list before you can create one on ‘my-bucketlist‘, trust me it’s so fun and so simple to do!
Anyway! So I made a collage of just a few things on my bucket list…
First things first, I want to marry the love of my life! I’ve always had this idea ever since i was little as well that I’m going to get married on a beach somewhere exotic, just can’t trust England’s weather!!
I want to travel the world, more than anything I’d love to do it in one, just to pack up my bags and go! Go to the airport and get on the first place out of there!
Now getting a tattoo, I’m terrible when it comes to pain, I’d rather run a marathon than give myself pain, however, it’s just one of those weird things i feel like i need to do.
Finally, the Northern Lights are somethings I’ve always wanted to experience, I’m a very outdoorsy person and that’s honestly my dream to see!
Another way to explore things to do, or to see what you want to put on your bucket list, is to watch video’s. I’ve recently become obsessed with Go Pro video’s of people traveling and exploring the world, it really motivates me to stick to my bucket list!
Seems as I’m obsessed with holidays and travelling, what are your favourite holiday types?
If you want to create a college like this, you never know you could print it off and use it for motivation for work or university!
So firstly i thought of all the things I that i wanted on my bucket list, for example:
- Sky diving
- See the 7 wonders of the World
- Swim in the Great Barrier Reef
- Run a marathon
- Build to school in Africa
- Graduate University
After you’ve chosen how many you want and which ones then just simply google it and find a picture to represent that activity! (TIP: If you type ‘Tumblr’ after you usually get some really nice pictures).
Once you have all your pictures you need to write on top of them, for this i just simply used word and used the text on there as i know how to use it, you could you photoshop if you like if you feel more confident to use it. I then saved all my pictures with the writing on top.
I then imported them all on this website called ‘BeFunky‘ which lets you create a college of pictures which all different templates and effects, just get creative! I really enjoyed using this website and I might just have to use it for other photographs of my family and friends.
So I hope you enjoyed yourself and can now have a lovely colourful Bucket Lift to look forward to!
I would love to hear about your bucket lists, I’m always up for a bit of inspiration! 🙂
