SoulCollage



I created this SoulCollage card as the first one of my Community Suit. The community suit is made up of people and pets who are important to you in various ways.

I think the Community Suit is the only one that I hadn't made a card for. I am excited to now have at least one card for each suit. (Committee, Community, Council,and Companion)

This is also my first digital collage. I did it in MSPaint. It's still a little awkward for me and there are layers under what you see here. It was fun, though, and I think I'll probably continue to do some SoulCollage cards digitally.

This lovely lady is my friend Cheryl. She is a SoulCollage Facilitator who studied with Seena Frost in California. She is also a wonderful jewelry designer and creator. She has recently created a number of mandalas, as well.

These are the "I am One who" statements for this card:

I am One who relishes creativity in myself and others.

I encourage others to be and do all that they are capable of being and doing.

I am filled with ideas and have a deep love of sharing these ideas.

I am One who acknowledges the Spirit. I stop and welcome the Spirit before I create. I go on to create sacred pieces of art that express this Spirit within me.

I am One who is beautiful, within as without.

Cheryl has been very encouraging to me and given me many ideas that have helped me to see a realistic future of blending creativity with income.

I feel strongly that God has placed us in each other's paths and I look forward to seeing where our merged path might lead.

There will be many more community cards to come. I have so many of you to acknowledge and celebrate. I thanked God for the blogging community this morning. While I have been physically isolated, I have felt the freedom and comfort of loving friendships all over the world.

I am grateful for every one of you.

Hi Groggy Froggy: Visited your Etsy store and like "Folk Art Angel." I must say you are an artist after my own heart: your prices are VERY affordable! Lol.

Happy Creating!

I like the Categories collage too. Very colorful and a very accurate message for the artist, and critics as well.
