Utilizing only natural materials such as charcoal from burned wood, stones, branches, leaves, and feathers I have found on wandering walks and hikes I used pieces of paper from my recycle pile and explored the new materials by playing with them.
First I am thankful for the natural energy from the items and the creatures, and plants that brought them to my hands.
After acknowledging that, I find an intention for my day and manifest it.
There is no right or wrong.
Sometimes I leave them overnight and continue working with the composition from the day before and sometimes I start over fresh and create something new.
