SoulCollage® is a wonderful process to bring into your life. You get to make Your Very Own deck of cards to represent YOU and any aspect of your life you want a connection to; that you want celebrated, respected or meditate upon.
What is Soul Collage?
to do lists and the mundane.
SoulCollage® cards that build your deck are for you only. These cards are not for other
people to use. It is important that other people do not project their meanings on your cards.
SoulCollage® cards ARE NOT FOR RESALE EVER. The images are typically from magazines with copyrighted sources. For instance the cards on this website , I made from free copyright sources
How do I get started? Do I have to do it all at once?
How to Start Doing SoulCollage® at home:
Start tearing out and collecting images that you are drawn to, entice you that mean something to you.
Recycle pics from magazines, greeting cards, photos, artwork or buy stock photos online. If you draw, you may have images you have always liked but haven’t framed, cut these down or shrink them or enlarge them for card making as you will see to fit the collage.
Materials: Good quality scissors, good glue stick and some high quality heavy card stock or manila folders. Once you decide on a thickness, you will want to stick with that for the deck to have a nice feel.
Cut the cards to about 8×5 inches.
You can go to soulcollage.com to buy materials. You will also see a lovely selection of other SoulCollagers’ cards on Seena’s website as well as in her book.
Read SoulCollage® Evolving by Seena Frost.
Now, begin to peruse your images and pick out 3-4 images you are drawn to. Don’t question this process, Trust you intuition. Assemble the images in a couple of different arrangements until it “feels” done. Then glue to the card. Let your creativity flow. The images are speaking from your non verbal Self. Each card is about one aspect of your life. This can be a very relaxing and meditative process or light and playful and happy. People like to do this alone but also like to get together with others and create together and have group readings.
Get started. Have some fun. Be open to whatever comes to visit! Text me and come for Open Studio time or a retreat.
Happy collaging! Blessings on your journey!
