I think it was a year and a half ago when I bought the wooden coins I would need to make my own runes. I’m sure I had plans to actually paint and make them back then and just got distracted which is one of the reasons that I am planning to add more dedicated “creative” time into my schedule in the new year!
Since we’re still over a month from the new year, you may wonder, “how did you find the time now???” And its a pretty cool story how. You see over two months ago I met this English woman in an alchemy program that I am in. She expressed her desire to make more friends and offered up a tea date. I decided to take her up on the offer and make it a tea and craft date!
We met last month and had such a fabulous time with each other, that we decided to do it again this month. So this past Saturday as I sat there writing I got the notice that she was waiting in my zoom! I’d totally forgotten about our date so I jumped over.
After we chatted for a bit I decided I need to find some craft to do while we chatted. I looked around the craft room and stumbled upon the wooden coins. It felt like the right time. So I grabbed the coins, some acrylic paint and my other necessary supplies.
When it comes to doing any type of artwork, I really try to follow my intuition. I asked what colors I should use and heard, “purple and gold”. Of course, I could have painted them solid purple with the gold symbols but I decided I wanted some character in these so I decide on a technique that I thought would make it resemble marble.
Holding onto those little coins and trying to paint was a bit of a pain. I had paint all over my hands, which I don’t mind, but they were so small and light that they kept sticking to my fingers which I was afraid would ruin the marbling technique. But I did it. Got them all painted, both sides and the edge.
Sunday morning I sat down and finished by putting on the symbols and I’m ecstatic how they turned out. My belief is that since I made these, they will be in tuned with my vibrational energy. My next steps with this is to conduct a study which means I’ll go through each one and write down my intuitive and guided interpretation.
