Collaging the Deep Self 2

This is the first card I created using the “Soul Collage” method and it brings me a lot of joy when I look at it. This card reminds me of a time as a child that I sat on a hillside covered with the golden Arrowleaf Balsamroot flowers that bloom in the Okanagan Valley in May. I felt at one with the rocks, the blue sky, the flowers, and the sound of humming bees as I soaked the landscape into my being. The card contains images of connection and curiosity in the giant star clusters as well as in the intricate web-spinning of a spider. May I always remember this curious and connected inner child.
