Soul Collage® Understanding My Wise Woman Within

Collage according to the Merriam Webster dictionary is:  

a : an artistic composition made of various materials (as paper, cloth, or wood) glued on a surface. 

I create collage with my mixed media quilts in which I use cloth, words, paper, beads, buttons, and decorative trims.  In Soul Collage® one works with images in a similar way to create a personal deck of cards that can be used for insights into a person’s wise inner self.  The developer of Soul Collage® is Seena B. Frost.  I learned about this wonderful technique on the retreat that I took on Orcas Island with Vicky B. White last October 2011.  

I decided that I wanted to create a card or two on Nurturing Myself: Physically, Emotionally, Mentally, and Spiritually.  I began by gathering images that represented being nurtured in all of these four ways.  I collect magazines, postcards, junk mail, free brochures, cards that I receive and anything that may have images that I don’t mind cutting or ripping for collage.  When I do this work, I don’t worry about what it all means.  I enjoy the process of using colors and images that are beautiful to me and I choose interesting ways to put them together.  Sometimes I listen to music; sometimes I allow silence to wash over me.  This creating is very fun.  This past weekend, I made some cards.  Here are a few of the cards that I created:
