As Cosmic Smash Booking founder, Catt tells us right from the start, there are 4 Rules of Cosmic Smash Booking, the first rule:
There are no rules
starts the journey into this incredibly simple but deep process. You will have fun while digging to the root of things and be relieved at the insights that rise up. Though we are not psychologists (at least I am not) I believe the art of Cosmic Smash Booking is a powerful tool of therapeutic art, of which I am a certified Life Coach and a certified Cosmic Smash Book Teacher.
Faerie Thyme is my theme through which we will create your Cosmic Smash Book, whether it is the first time you're creating a Cosmic Smash Book or you've made twenty, every page will tie-in to the Faerie Realm, Faerie Lore, and the magic of that otherworld, which is also within you. This whimsical nature hidden inside will lure you through a portal of self-discovery to a more happy carefree feeling in a very short period of time!
Please know, in this 5-class course you will undergo the lessons designed as a weekly lesson at your own pace (self-study series), each class recording is about one hour in length. In three of the weekly classes there are additional short recordings:
Class One - contains an additional 3 short recordings for getting your composition book fully activated and transformed into a Sacred Faerie Thyme cosmic smash book. Even if you've made cosmic smash books before, you'll want to allow the time to learn how to do it the Faerie Way!
Class Three - includes a bonus project on How To Make Tags. This is optional but will be utilized in Series Two - Into Faeryland.
Class Four - Is the heavy session as we will create TWO of our spreads: Fire and Water. There are a total of 4 recordings.
In 2021, I am also holding a monthly Third Sunday PLAYTIME with me & Friends in a Zoom classroom, where we hang out for an hour and just work on our own projects while enjoying each others company! These are optional gifts to you and not mandatory to attend. I will always show my camera and what I am working on.
Every new cosmic smash booker must learn the basics, and seasoned smashers will learn a NEW WAY. Class 1 will focus on HOW TO make a Cosmic Smash Book. We begin by designing the cover and then transforming the book by using the five senses or elements the Faerie Way.
You will learn the 4 Rules of Cosmic Smash Booking! Oh yes!!! and take a look at the Standard Pages every Cosmic Smash Book contains, which we will create in classes 1 & 2. Seasoned Smashers will be pleasantly surprised to learn how to do these the Faerie Way! Oh yes! Something NEW just for You!
We call the standard pages: a Resting Page and a Grounding Page. What these two pages mean will be shared as we create them. Every Cosmic Smash Book include these basics. After we create them the Faerie Way we will begin to do what's called prescription pages which will be three days of creating fun and whimsical pages in our theme.
You will be pleased to learn that our supply list is minimal and in fact you probably already have most of the supplies. Below is my Amazon suggested supply list, where you are free to purchase needed items right from that list (no, I do not make commission). USE what you already have rather than buy a bunch of new things, or maybe buy one new thing you don't have so that you can experiment and stretch outside the box a little. The list I offer is just a suggestion. You'll see me use these items and a few of the normal supplies that we use all the time.
Items NOT On The Supply List:
~ large sheet of paper we will use in making the cover (more on this in your welcome email.
~ tapes: different kinds from scotch tape, masking tape to washi tape.
~ Colored markers, crayons, pencils (water soluable preferable)
~ collage materials always good to have,
~acrylic paints, brushes
~ white gesso
~ paintbrushes + water container
My love for the world of Faerie began at the young age of three when we visited Disneyland for the first time and I met... yep you guessed it: Tinkerbell. That little doll was just the awakener to what I would grow up to learn is a real magical world that guides us into a deep state of mysticism.
Years of study and otherworld pathworking as an "Ollamh" (equivalent to a high priestess) in the Faery-Faith, as well as going to Ireland for 15 years on sacred pilgrimages forever changed me... in some ways for the better and in other ways, well, the longer you know me you'll see and you can be the judge of that!
During the series, I will share about the books I have written on the Irish Faery-Faith Tradition, share a movie with you at a playdate titled the same, and divulge lots of lore!
This 5-class course is a Self-Paced program.
You will be given access to the special Faerie Thyme Classroom that not only contains the weekly intention and video links but also additional Faery Lore, Irish pronunciation guide and music!
