So this exercise, a more sophisticated and reflective take on the traditional mood board or vision board.
Instead of arranging images for inspiration or motivation, this collage is an opportunity to explore and to gain insight and clarity about the seasons we cycle through in our lives.
Take a moment to reflect on the current phase or season you're in, the one that just past or the one that you anticipate is approaching. Maybe it’s a season of rest, a season on learning, or a season on creation or manifestation.
Here are some questions to deepen your reflection and help you begin to figure out what images you may want to include in your collage.
What is the color palette of this season?
What scents do you smell or surround yourself with during this season?
What parts of this season do you enjoy?
What parts of this season bring rise to worry, fear, anxiety or apprehension?
What types of activities do you do during this season?
What thoughts and feelings arise during this season?
What is are the lessons of this season?
What is your approach to self-care during this season?
What words do you associate with this season?
What kind of support do you need during this season?
What would you name or call this season?
One of my favorite things to do while creating art, particularly when creating art for my mental health and emotional wellness, is to listen to music. While making this tutorial and creating a collage for one of my seasons, I was listening to the Global Funk playlist on Spotify. Here's the link! Spotify Global Funk Playlist
