Scraps Of Darkness presents White Rabbit, the June Kit. It includes an artfully fun collection of papers and embellishments. As with all Scraps of Darkness kits, you can take this kit in any direction you want. That's how versatile it is, easily this kit can adapt to your scrappy mood and scrappy style.
This is a photo I also found at the United States Library of Congress Flickr Pilot Project website . I saw it and instantly knew what I needed to do.
I have a scrapper friend experiencing a very difficult trying year. This was created with her in mind. When it seems like all the clouds are grey and the air to thick to breathe, she has found hope in her deep faith.
So much symbolism used here:
The blue leather strap represents the strong binding hold that problems can have in life. Sometimes problems hold us back from being the people we were meant to be - stifling our full potential. My friend decided to not let her problems draw her away from her faith and her commitment to family.
The deep blue sky with puffy clouds: Faith can make the heavens part and reduce the storm clouds to manageable puffs and wisps. She will weather this storm.
The Dusty Attic Crooked Fence - I painted it white - representing hope and grace. Yes the fence is falling apart - my friend seems like her life is falling apart some days, most days. She just needs to realize the fence is open, not closed and locked. It has an opening to let her into the church where her prayers and sobs can be heard and answered. The fence may look crooked, but I assure you it is always tended and freshly painted by a host of heavenly angels to lead the way. Looks can be deceiving.
The church in the photo is having some maintenance done on it. Aren't we all? We all need to realize we are a work in progress and life problems and difficulties only serve to strengthen us and our faith.
The angel wings in molding paste - May your prayers be carried to heaven on the wings of angels.
I have formed a cross type shape out of the 7 Dots paper as my photo mat. A photo mat is really just a foundation for my photo. Your faith is the foundation for living your life, dear friend.
As you have poured your heart out to me and I have listened, may our prayers be joined so that your heaven can part and joy be restored.
I used the Dusty Attic Crooked Fence DA0620 here and painted it white for more starkness and to resemble the broken fence in the photo.
