SoulCollage with Miss Lucy Hughes

In my previous post, I talked about a new process I tried called SoulCollage. The best way I can describe it is part art and part therapy. I thought it might be interesting to see if I could apply the process to one rambunctious 3 year old. Here is how our journey went. Do not think for ONE MINUTE that this process is not POWERFUL and REAL.

Headed to one favorite place and sort of neighborhood touchstone, Rudyard's, so we could spread out on a table and work. We were both feeling like this picture....

This was our pile of stuff a la Mary Ann Mossthat we collect and throw in this box to add to our books. I warn you if you got to Mary Ann's may not EVER get off.

This is the book that I made for Lucy. It looks like her, right?

And this is my tattered and happy book. I use this for experimenting, journaling, collecting keepsakes....whatever.

This is Lucy's page....she picked out all the images and told me where to put them, and I DID NOT critique her or try to tell her how to do it. I let her just do it.

And so what is her page made of? A sticker from the Beryl Grady band. We saw them at West Alabama Ice House not too long ago, and she loved them. A picture of Joby in bed....Joby is out of town right now. A paper cocktail umbrella - he is in Florida and he packed one of these for me before I went to Florida a couple of weeks ago and asked me to put it in my glass on the plane to signify that I was NOW on vacation. I did it - BTW. The last thing is a ripped off side of a RUNTS candy box; something we bought over Spring Break when we went to Candylicious.

So, there you have it. SoulCollage works for the toddler set.

It was difficult to focus as I salivated and envisioned handmade chocolates floating out of my computer screen and landing in my mouth.Read more:-Buy pink gummy candy
