The Making of: The Falcon, Card #8

The Making of: The Falcon, Card #8

I want to tell you the story of how I create each of my cards. Think of this as my Guidebook to my personal deck of cards. As I create new ones, I’ll share more stories. You’ve got at least 22 weeks of stories coming your way, one each week. The majority of my cards are created in Inktense pencils on watercolor paper and these are their creation stories. 

The Falcon

Trust your instincts. Feel it in your body, notice how you feel with each choice, each opportunity. Get crystal clear on your vision, on what you desire. Once you make your choice, commit, fully dive into it and experience every moment. Know you’re on the right track. 

The Inspiration and meaning of this Card

This is one of my earliest cards. I wasn’t taking notes on each one as I went then, but I know how often falcons fly around here. I know that animals come to me as I’m driving in real life and in visions while I sleep. Falcons are signs of needing to step back, look at the full picture, each of the options. The part that has stood out to me, is seeing that they are a sign of feeling into your body – the emotions and feels that come up when making a decision. 
I’ve created this card with my Inktense pencils. While many of these cards are quick, one layer drawings, I took more time with this one. It’s several layers with drying time in-between. Sometimes it’s nice to take a little extra time with a card because I love the process and because animal portraits are my favorite!
