|My very first card!|
The facilitator taught us the basics of SoulCollage®--the history of its founder, Seena Frost; the purpose and uses of SoulCollage® card making; the four suits in which cards can be categorized.***
After lunch, we listened to a recorded meditation by Seena, and then made a card in response. We read these cards by filling in a poem template, and could share if we wished.
|Inspired by meditation|
Time and space to be creative has been lacking in my life for the last few years, and I found this experience freeing and insightful. I am a person of words, and thinking through images was new and exciting--even though I found myself qualifying through words in my head as I searched for pictures. I also think I was subconsciously preparing for this class many years ago, when I started a box of clipart back in my greeting-card-making days that I just couldn't let go. Time to blow the dust off the box and create! I've already ordered supplies to make more SoulCollage® cards, enjoying this avenue to discover more about myself through art.
