I am so remiss in posting on this blog, that I wonder about the value of keeping it going. I have been busy to say the least, and time flies by.
This particular post was sitting here waiting for me to publish it during the summer. So rather then let it die on the vine, wither on a post page, I am posting it tonight, better late then never. So I can move forward and re-engage with this creative writing process, of documenting my creative journey. So here goes.
What have I been up to besides enjoying the summer. Well lots of things...Ongoing SoulCollage® groups, making mandala pendants and cards and collaged journals, and more.
But up until this past weekend, it has been like a block of resistance on doing encaustic which I love...at least until this weekend.
I can list the reasons that stop me, but that doesn't serve me here...
Into The DeepI decided to work with one of my favorite cards, which I call Into the deep..
She is the one who is able to transform any situation with her imagination.
Often when I swim at the YMCA, I imagine the water to be healing pools, warm water in Hawaii, crystal clear river swimming holes with waterfalls around me. My imagination takes me away from the box of water in a larger box of a building, into my memories of places I visited, to dreamy healing water sanctuaries that only live in my inner world.
By taking a photo of my card and making a zeros copy of it, I was able to transfer it on the wax.
Carrying me away on the waters of my imagination and transforming this space into a natural watery healing memory that lives deep within my unconscious and more youthful adventurous past.
I am the one who dives into the waters of my imagination
and is able to transform any situation
with my vivd imagination.
