On one of our artist dates, I made some Soul Collage cards with my friends Amy and Judy. We each brought a stack of magazines, a sharp pair of scissors and some glue. Ripping out images that appealed to me brought back memories of doing this exact same activity when I was very young. I found out that day that glue sticks work the best for this kind of work. White glue will create wrinkles as the collage dries.
After all of the images and words were cut out, I started picking and choosing to arrange them on a piece of 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ matboard. This is a very intuitive process and it helps to listen carefully to that quiet wise place inside of you. You’ll be amazed at what emerges.
I was fascinated to see that the 3 cards I created that day symbolized my past, present and future. My favorite is my present card entitled “Fabulously 50”.
