|'TWO BY TWO'|
A CREATIVE HARBOR
SPIRIT COLLAGE SUNDAY
and Weidknecht Weekend Blog Hop <(click on to hop over to bloghop)
Welcome, Spirit Collage Sunday and come join the fun with a Blog Hop at link above and stay here to learn how to make your very own 'oracle' cards. It's Free. Collaging is very freeing as well for the Spirit.
Spirit Collages are very simple or complicated to make. It all depends on you. Basically, you start with finding images that 'speak to your soul' from magazines (no worry about copyright as you are not selling your cards and by the time you have cut and pasted the images could look very different anyway). You can use your own art work as well. Good way to recycle paintings or creations you didn't like.So once you have gathered the images then you paste them on matte board ~ or card board or any surface your would like.Traditionally they are approximately 8" x 5" as it is an easy size to create (you may use any size you like and any material) with and handle as an 'oracle' card. That is the physical process. The mental and emotional process is very individually chosen and expressed. I am still on the psychology realm. We all have 'self talk' that acts like a MonkeyMind of voices you have in your head about emotions essentially. Or just collage whatever feelings you are feeling.
My card above '2x2 is about my feelings of being single in a 2x2 world and how I sometimes think about meeting a 'mate' but am somewhat ambivalent about it ~ I was widowed seven years ago and really miss, at times, that wonderful companionship. So I made this card as visual of my 'emotional need' to have a special someone in my life. Then I began to think how it doesn't have to be 'a person' it could be my passion to create. Let's see what happens. So try a Spirit Collage and put your dreams on one. In the meantime, you are having fun creating with no heavy pressure ~ just fun!
Hugs and namaste,
and Carol ^_^
