Thanks to Marj aka Thriver at Survivors Can Thrive!, and Vicki at Here in My World, I learned about Polyvore and art therapy and collage making. Check out their blogs to see some of what they have done.
I thought the idea of art therapy was a great idea, a creative way of dealing with feelings and experience, etc. I am not an artist, but the idea of communicating with something besides words, sounded right to me.
So I made my first collage, a rather simple one compared with others that I have seen. But I am a newbie so I am being patient with myself. Which is a new thing!
This first collage is called New Life. Jesus has brought me a lot of healing - a new life in many respects. Through knowing Him, I am learning that I am lovable and I am a person of value and I am free to be me.
Hope you check out Polyvore and maybe try your hand at making a collage.
