As with this, the fall of the year, so is it the time for the crone to pass on, to be reborn in the spring as the maiden. Women, around my age, celebrate their own ‘rite of passage’. There is a ceremony one can engage in, for one’s own personal understanding, which celebrates this rite of passage. There is an example of the ritual on “Hecate’s Cauldron”.
This is something I want to do. It should be done on a full moon, the next which comes October 26th. It will have a special meaning for me, particularly, at this time of the year. This isn’t so much a ‘religious’ thing as it is a ‘spiritual’ thing. I have come to a time in my life where I can make some sense of my purpose. This is all coming together for me and I am at peace.
And, while I’m feeling all gooshy, and stuff, I have something I want to share. In the spirit of the season, I made some ‘frame/tag/mattes”. LOL I have this thing about text-space in scrapbooking. Tags, journal blocks, places to record the story, or, at least, the who, where, when…etc., seem, to me, to be neglected, rather often. I do it. But, they are so helpful in documenting your stories. Future generations will only have to stare at the nameless faces in our albums, otherwise. LOL
So, I found some frame-like shapes and dolled them up. They’re kind of goofy, but, they are for the season. I applied some styles and patterns, as well as, blending modes and other adjustments and had a ball. LOL! There is one that is ‘bloody-themed’, several patterned in checks and Harlequin design, and one dark. I credited her in the .zip, but, I want to pay homage to “The Scrappin’ Cop”, for her Construction Paper Styles, which I used for the centers. I realize that Deb is handling her TOU’s differently, now, but, I hope, in the spirit of the season, this will be alright. That lady is a one-woman show! There isn’t a scrapping element she hasn’t tackled, is there? And, she aces everything she does. Her designs are phenomenal! But, you already know that, don’t you?
Here ya go! Enjoy!
