The SoulCollage® Process
Making SoulCollage® cards is a soul-tending activity. Our cards can act, as Seena Frost describes, as “a symbolic reflection of our many-faceted, evolving Soul.”
Preparing to Make SoulCollage® cards?
The supplies we need are simple and easily accessible: old magazines, a base on which to collage, glue and scissors (but even scissors are optional as you can tear your images).
First - Gather magazines and tear out any images that appeal to you. Don’t think too much about the images. Let the images grab you. Put these in a pile. I suggest you gather together about fifty rich, evocative images.
Second - Find cardstock or matboard to use as the base of your SoulCollage® cards. The most used size is 5 inches by 8 inches, but you can use any size you like. My cards are 5 inches by 7 inches. You can buy precut 5 by 8 inch matboard from the SoulCollae® supplier, Hanford Mead Publishers.
Third - Find some sharp scissors and a glue stick.
In the following video, I talk about the supplies you need and how to choose and prepare images to make cards.
