“Walking, I am listening to a deeper way.
Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me.
Be still, they say. Watch and listen.
You are the result of the love of thousands.”
– Linda Hogan
At All Hallows, we honor our Beloved Dead (of our bloodlines and our spirit-lines) by making mixed-media collage Prayer Cards that we can display during the season of Hallowmas.
In this self-paced course, I will lead you, step by step, into creating Ancestor Prayer Cards — unique mixed media collages.
Artistic experience isn’t required for this project. I’ll be taking you through the process, so even if you think you have no artistic talent (don’t believe it!), you can still create beautiful prayer cards. You’ll learn mixed media techniques and play with paint, paper, ink, glue, and more.
Each Ancestor Prayer Card will become a focus for your love and devotion for your ancestor. You may find yourself crying as you work on your prayer card, remembering your Beloved Dead. Let your emotions flow. All that love will work its way into the art you’re creating. It will then be a potent focus for the connection between you and your loved one.
